Radar Bali reports that municipal enforcement officer from Bali’s capital of Denpasar visited the Blue Eye Karaoke Entertainment Center on the Ngurah Rai Bypass on Friday, February 17, 2011. Officers of Denpasar administration delivered written reprimands to the company’s management, ordering PT Embrio to halt constriction activities and to quickly demolish a current expansion of Blue Eyes that violates set-pack rules from a public roadway.

PT Embrio
is the management entity for Blue Eyes and the Hotel Harrad complex.

The head of the enforcement agency for Denpasar, Alit Wiradana, said the latest visit by his team was a follow up to a earlier warning letter sent by Denpasar's Zoning Department stating that no permit had been issued for a building expansion.

PT Embrio has also been ordered to change the shape of the original building’s roofline, brining it into conformance with the original plans approved in the building permit. The warning provides owners with a 7-day period in which to make the demanded modifications or face the prospect of a forceful demolition carried out by the Municipality.

The unregistered expansion of the complex is being cited by officials as being only 19.5 meters back from the main road while zoning regulations dictate a minimum set back of 24 meters.

The General Manager of Hotel Harrad and Blue Eyes Karaoke, Robert Manurung, has separately confirmed the company’s readiness to comply with local building and zoning regulations. “We will immediately advise the central management. We appreciate this decision, including the warnings that we received from the satpol PP (enforcement officers),” said Manurung.

Manurung said the decision on whether the owners would carry out the required demolishment or if the work would be done by the enforcement agency depended on the central management’s decision. Robert also promised the process of construction would also be brought to a temporary halt.

Other reports in the Bali press also report outstanding tax bills on behalf of the Blue Eye’s entertainment complex for Rp. 1.9 billion (US$211,000).
