Dubai Municipality opens new office
Dubai, February 8, 2009
Dubai Municipality has opened its new Dh6.8 million ($1.85 million) office in Al Bada, which offers the public a number of civic services under one roof.
Hussain Nasser Lootah, director general of Dubai Municipality, said the facility will help manage the city's affairs such as public health, building inspection, waste management, food inspection and waste management services.
He elaborated that the opening of the new branch office forms part of the decentralisation policy adopted by the municipality in delivering civic services to the public and simplifying the procedures for them.
"This would reduce the number of visitors at the main Dubai Municipality office taking pressure off it. Moreover, it would save the people their time and efforts in driving to the heart of the town," he said.
The two-floor premises, while offering services of different departments within Dubai Municipality, also has a car parking area and a landscaped green space.
The project was designed in the unique shape of all other municipality branch offices. The ground floor has an area of 419 sq m and the first floor 401 sq m. – TradeArabia News Service
