Universitas Borneo Tarakan kini Berstatus Negeri

Universitas Borneo Tarakan kini Berstatus NegeriUniversitas Borneo Tarakan - Ratusan mahasiswa dan mahasiswi bersama staf Universitas Borneo (UB) Tarakan, Rabu (24/11/2010) di Vip Room Bandara Juwata Tarakan, menyambut kedatangan Prasasti UB Tarakan menjadi universitas Negeri yang ditandatangani Presiden Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono pada 22 November lalu di Universitas Cenderawasih Papua.

Prasasti yang dibawa Rektor UB Tarakan Abdul Jabarsyah Ibrahim ini pun langsung diara-arak keliling Kota Tarakan. Dalam arak-arakan yang menggunakan mobil pickup terbuka ini ikut serta di dalamnya Walikota Tarakan Udin Hianggio dan Ketua DPRD Tarakan Efendhi Djuprianto.

Arak-arakan ini mulai star dari Vip Room Bandara Juwata Tarakan, melewati Jalan Mulawarman, Yos Sudarso, Kusuma Bangsa, Pulau Bunyu, Kalimantan dan akhirnya finish di halaman parkir Kantor Walikota Tarakan.

Selama prasasti diarak-arak keliling kota Tarakan, warga Tarakan tidak terlalu antusias menyambut kedatangan prasasti tersebut. Warga seolah-solah tidak perduli kedatangan prastasi itu. Pantuan Tribun, saat mengikuti arak-arakan tersebut, terlihat warga yang berada di pinggir- pinggir jalan hanya melihat dan memadang tanpa ada memberikan ekspresi kegembiraan.

Terlihat pula jalan-jalan yang dilalui arak-arakan ini tampak sepi dari warga. Hal ini terlihat saat melewati Jalan Kusuma Bangsa, Pulau Bunyu dan Jala Kusuma Bangsa tidak ada warga yang berada di pinggir jalan hanya mobil dan motor saja yang lewat.

Tentunya penyambutan ini sangat berbeda, saat menyambut kedatangan komisi II DPR RI terkait dengan pembentukan Kaltara beberapa waktu lalu. Disini warga masyarakat sangat antusias. Mereka membawa bendera merah putih, membentangkan spanduk dan melambaikan tangan kepada anggota komisi yang datang. (*)

Binalatung Tarakan Cocok Jadi Kawasan Walet

Binalatung Tarakan Cocok Jadi Kawasan Walet - BorneoTARAKAN - Meskipun saat ini Pemerintah Kota (Pemkot) Tarakan, masih menyusun draft rancang peraturan daerah (Raperda) tentang sarang burung walet, namun Kecamatan Tarakan Tengah, telah merekomendasikan daerah Binalatung sebagai tempat yang dapat dijadikan kawasan burung walet.

"Kalau menurut saya daerah Binalatung cocok digunakan sebagai kawasan sarang burung walet, karena lokasinya masih kosong dan berhadapan dengan laut. Apalagi yang saya dengar sarang burung walet itu lebih bagus kalau dekat dengan laut," ujar Camat Tarakan Tengah, Hendra Arfandi.

Hendra mengatakan, Binalatung dapat dijadikan sebagai kawasan sarang walet, selain lokasi lahannya masih kosong dan berhadapan dengan laut, juga jauh dari pemukiman rumah warga, sehingga tidak menganggu warga sekitarnya. (*)

Pemkot Tarakan Segera Melelang Kendaraan Dinas

Terbuka untuk Umum, Pemkot Tak Pasang Target

Pemkot Tarakan Segera Melelang Kendaraan Dinas - BorneoPemerintah kota Tarakan yang berencana melakukan penghapusan aset berupa kendaraan dinas, ditegaskan wali kota H. Udin Hianggio, akan dilalui dengan cara pelelangan umum, dalam arti dijual kepada masyarakat secara terbuka.

“Mekanismenya memang membolehkan dilelang. Rencananya lelang umum,” kata Wali Kota Udin Hianggio.

Dikatakannya, usulan penghapusan aset ini berupa surat resmi dari sekretaris kota belum diketahuinya. “Saya belum lihat karena baru saja tiba dari Jepang. Mungkin Senin nanti baru saya dapat ketahui,” katanya.

Menurutnya, jika semua aset yang ingin dihapus dan direncanakan untuk dilelang sudah memenuhi semua persyaratan yang dituangkan dalam Peraturan Menteri Dalam Negeri (Permendagri) Nomor 17 Tahun 2007 tentang Pedoman Teknis Pengelolaan Barang Milik Daerah, dalam waktu dekat rencana tersebut akan secepatnya dilakukan.

Mengenai target penghasilan penjualan puluhan motor yang diusulkan beberapa SKPD ini, wali kota mengatakan tidak ada target pendapatan khusus. “Target harus mengacu dari kondisi motor itu,” terangnya.

Dikatakannya pula, selain motor, kemungkinan masih ada beberapa aset lagi yang juga akan ikut dilelang. Di antaranya mobil roda empat yang juga memenuhi syarat dilelang.

“Tapi saya belum tahu jumlahnya. Masih ditangani SKPD terkait,” kata Udin Hianggio.

Saat ini ada dua satuan kerja perangkat daerah (SKPD) di lingkup pemerintah kota yang berencana melelang kendaraan roda dua yang selama ini digunakan sebagai kendaraan operasional. Yakni dari Dinas Pendidikan yang mengusulkan 70 motor, dan dari Dinas Pendapatan, Pengelolaan Keuangan dan Aset (DP2KA) yang mengusulkan 20 motor. Semua motor yang dilelang tersebut bermerk Yamaha Sigma keluaran tahun 2000 dan 2001.

Lalu bagaimana kondisi motor dinas yang akan dilelang? Misalnya di bawah gedung gabungan dinas-dinas (Gadis) I, terdapat 11 motor dengan merek sama, Yamaha Sigma. Motor ini diparkir berderetan paling depan. Semuanya berplat warna merah, alias milik pemerintah. Motor-motor ini merupakan sebagian motor yang rencananya akan diputihkan (dum) melalui lelang umum. Kondisinya saat ini sudah sangat berdebu. Ini dimaklumi karena kendaraan ini sudah lama sekali tidak digunakan. Dari 11 kendaraan itu, 7 di antaranya mengalami ban kempes. Entah karena diparkir lama sehingga kempes, atau memang kempes karena ban bocor. Selain itu, hanya satu motor yang dilengkapi kaca spion. Yang dipasang pada bagian kiri. Serta 8 motor tidak lagi dilengkapi kap.

Motor-motor ini merupakan aset pemerintah kota Tarakan yang dikelola Dinas Pendapatan, Pengelolaan Keuangan dan Aset (DP2KA). Selain motor ini, masih ada beberapa motor lainnya yang direncanakan ikut dilelang. Totalnya ada 20 buah motor dengan merek yang sama. “Motor yang lainnya masih dibengkel. Kalau ditaruh semua di sini parkiran tidak cukup,” jelas salah satu pegawai di gedung tersebut.

Lain halnya dengan kondisi motor di Dinas Pendidikan yang juga direncanakan juga ikut dilelang. Dari total 70 motor yang direncanakan ikut dilelang, semuanya masih digunakan sebagai kendaraan operasional sekolah. Dikatakan Wahjudi, Pengurus Barang Dinas Pendidikan, dari 70 motor yang ingin dilelang itu, baru 53 buah yang telah disampaikan ke DP2KA selaku pengelola aset pemerintah kota, dikarenakan segala administrasi dan kesiapan fisik 53 motor tersebut sudah beres, baik berupa pajak kendaraan, Surat Tanda Nomor Kendaraan (STNK) dan juga Buku Pemilik Kendaraan Bermotor (BPKB). “Yang 23 motor lainnya, ada yang masih diurus perpanjangan STNK. Juga masih diselesaikan pembayaran pajaknya di Samsat,” kata Wahyudi beberapa waktu lalu.

Tapi dari 23 motor itu, sekitar 40 persen, kata Wahyudi, sudah selesai pengurusan administrasinya. Sementara lainnya sedang diusahakan segera selesai. Hambatannya selama ini karena motor-motor ini masih digunakan pihak sekolah, yakni sebagai kendaraan operasional kepala sekolah dan wakil kepala sekolah. “Jadi masih sulit dijangkau. Terkadang motor yang mau dilelang ini letaknya di sekolah yang jauh. Kadang juga STNK-nya sudah mati, jadi butuh waktu mengurus perpanjangannya. Begitu juga ada yang belum dilunasi pajak tahunannya,” jelas Wahjudi.

Namun Dinas Pendidikan merencanakan ikut melelang 23 motor ini bersama-sama 53 motor lainnya yang lebih dulu diserahkan kepada DP2KA. “Kita harap bersama-sama,” ujar Wahyudi.

Pihak Dinas Pendidikan juga sudah mengkomunikasikan rencana ini kepada Dinas Perhubungan untuk dilakukan pemeriksaan kondisi fisik 70 kendaraan ini. Dari hasil pemeriksaan itu, diketahui kondisi fisik kendaraan sudah dibawah 25 persen. “Pihak Dishub sudah mem-prosentase-kan fisik tiap-tiap kendaraan. Dari prosentase itu, nanti DP2KA yang menentukan harga,” ujarnya.

Kepala Seksi Pemeliharaan Aset, DP2KA, M. Zainuddin sebelumnya mengatakan, rencana penghapusan aset pemerintah kota ini masih diusulkan kepada Wali Kota melalui Sekretaris Kota Tarakan untuk mendapatkan persetujuan. “Kalau nantinya disetujui Pak Wali Kota, dalam SK (surat keputusan) itu akan diterangkan, apakah lelang dalam arti dijual, atau dihibahkan, atau juga dimusnahkan,” kata Zainuddin.

Menurutnya, ada kemungkinan dilakukan penjualan motor-motor tersebut karena masih bernilai ekonomis dan dianggap dapat membantu kas daerah pemerintah kota Tarakan. “Kan masih layak digunakan. Kalaupun ada yang rusak masih bisa diperbaiki,” terangnya.

Rata-rata motor yang ingin dilelang ini merupakan pengadaan operasional pada tahun anggaran 2000 dan 2001. Sehingga sudah dapat dilakukan penghapusan aset melalui lelang sesuai Peraturan Menteri Dalam Negeri (Permendagri) Nomor 17 Tahun 2007 tentang Pedoman Teknis Pengelolaan Barang Milik Daerah, karena sudah melewati 5 tahun. Adapun harga satuan motor-motor tersebut, Zainuddin memperkirakan antara Rp 1 juta hingga Rp 5 juta. “Namun tergantung tingkat usia kendaraan dan kondisi motor itu,” ujarnya. Dalam Permendagri tersebut juga dijelaskan jika nilai aset berupa barang bergerak dibawah Rp 5 miliar, cukup melalui SK Wali Kota tanpa mengajukan izin ke DPRD. Sementara jika yang akan dihapus itu adalah tanah atau bangunan, walau nilainya dibawah Rp 5 miliar, tetap harus diajukan ke DPRD. “Kita rencanakan dilelang tahun ini juga karena sudah diusulkan tahun ini. Tinggal menunggu SK dari Wali Kota saja,” jelas Zainuddin. (***)

Budi Handoyo Kini Danlanud Tarakan

Tuntaskan Pembangunan Makolanud

Budi Handoyo Kini Danlanud Tarakan Tuntaskan Pembangunan Makolanud - BorneoTARAKAN - Tongkat komando kepemimpinan di Pangkalan Udara (Lanud) Tarakan resmi berpindah dari Letkol Penerbang Erwan Andrian kepada Letkol Navigasi Budi Handoyo, Jumat (12/11) di Makolanud Tarakan.

Pangkoopsau II Marsma TNI R. Agus Munandar usai acara sertijab mengatakan, penekanan seorang komandan baru tidak harus merubah total apa yang selama ini sudah berjalan di Lanud Tarakan.

“Biasanya pejabat baru kalau menjadi komandan harus merubah total kebijakan yang lama. Itu tidak benar,” tandasnya.

Menurutnya, tugas pejabat baru justru meneruskan apa yang telah dilakukan pejabat lama. Sebab jika tidak diteruskan, maka program yang sudah  dirancang tersebut tidak akan sinergi lagi.

“Mengingat Pangkalan Udara Tarakan ini masih baru, saya minta kepada danlanud yang baru tetap diprioritaskan pembangunannya sehingga dua atau tiga tahun kemudian bisa settled (beres),” harapnya.

Meski demikian, Agus tidak memberi batasan kepada danlanud yang baru untuk berkreativitas, terutama dalam membangun Lanud Tarakan. Jika diseriusi, lanjut Agus, pembangunan di Lanud Tarakan ini dalam satu dua tahun ke depan bisa dipastikan rampung. “Tanahnya saja belum rata. Jalan tembusnya juga belum selesai,” cetusnya.

Untuk diketahui, saat ini pembangunan jalan tembus dari Jl. Mulawarman menuju Makolanud baru rampung sekitar 80 persen. Itu terkendala lantaran di bawah jalan yang sedang dikerjakan tersebut terdapat kandungan batu bara.

“Pembangunannya tahun ini kita harapkan selesai,” harap jenderal berbintang dua di pundaknya ini.

Dijelaskannya, Lanud Tarakan yang berada di wilayah perbatasan jangkauannya tentu adalah sebagai antisipasi terhadap ancaman yang ada.

“Kami tidak memaksakan kepada seluruh pangkalan untuk menjadi pangkalan induk. Namun sebagai sebuah pangkalan, kapanpun pangkalan ini dibutuhkan harus siap untuk perang. Apalagi kalau ada ancaman dari luar,” pungkasnya.

Danlanud yang lama Letkol Penerbang Erwan Andrian mengatakan yang akan menjadi pekerjaan rumah bagi penggantinya adalah melakukan komunikasi dan pendekatan dengan wilayah tetangga seperti Pemkab Berau, Malinau, Bulungan, KTT, dan Nunukan.

“Itu yang belum sempat saya lakukan dan akan saya turunkan kepada pejabat yang baru,” ujarnya.

Selama di Tarakan, Erwan yang terkesan dekat dengan anak buahnya ini mempunyai pengalaman yang cukup berkesan pada saat terjadinya peristiwa kelabu di Tarakan beberapa waktu lalu.

“Terus terang dari permasalahan yang kecil saja dampaknya sungguh besar sekali. Bahkan kami juga merasakan. Saya berpesan, marilah kita ciptakan situasi kondusif yang damai. Jika ini terjadi maka semuanya enak,” kata Erwan yang sempat menampung pengungsi selama beberapa hari di markasnya.

Setelah dari Tarakan, Erwan akan bertugas sebagai dosen penuntun di Sekolah Kesatuan Komando Angkatan Udara di Halim Perdana Kusuma Jakarta. Untuk diketahui, Erwan Andrian bertugas sebagai Danlanud di Tarakan selama 1,2 tahun.

Danlanud Tarakan yang baru Letkol Navigasi Budi Handoyo mengaku akan meneruskan hal-hal yang baik dari komandan lama, terutama di bidang pembangunan insfrastruktur dan pembinaan mental prajurit. Sehingga ke depannya para prajurit dapat menjalankan tugasnya sebagai prajurit TNI AU yang baik.

“Yang saya lanjutkan pertama adalah membangun infrastruktur sedemikian rupa sehingga dapat teratur rapi dan para anggota ditingkatkan kedisiplinan. Sehingga semua siap menjalankan perintah dalam suasana genting dalam menjalankan tugas,” kata Budi.

Lanud Tarakan, jelasnya, adalah sebagai pangkalan aju terdepan yang merupakan pangkalan udara yang sewaktu-waktu dihadapkan dengan perselisihan negara lain. Untuk itu, Lanud Tarakan dituntut harus siap untuk melakukan perang. “Apapun situasinya kalau mewajibkan kami untuk terbang, kami siap,” tegas pria yang menjabat Danlanud Tarakan kedua.

Terkait pembangunan makolanud, terutama fasilitas jalan masuk, menurut Budi penyelesaiannya tinggal 20 persen lagi. Itu dipengaruhi adanya faktor alam, yaitu kandungan batu bara di dalamnya. Untuk itu rencananya kandungan batu bara tersebut akan dikeruk dan akan diuruk.

“Insya Allah akhir bulan ini selesai,” pungkas Budi yang sebelumnya menjabat Komandan Sekolah Komando Kesatuan TNI Angkatan Udara.(ddq)
