Reply to "active/passive voice"

Thank you so much Ahmed, Gustavo and billj.

I see from your answers that the sentence can only be changed to the active voice by adding a subject to it (authorities/they). Billj's suggestion also works without the hint of a subject (or is there one that I'm missing?).

A lot of the things I say or write always end up being in the passive voice. I was told ages ago that it's always better to use the active form. So once in a while when I do remember, and I come across a sentence in the passive, I try to mentally flip it to the active voice. But I just couldn't do it with the sentence I had posted above.

Anyway, thanks a lot, guys! You've been a great help.
