New Dhs 6.8 million office for Dubai Municipality in Al Bada

Dubai, 08 February 2009: Dubai Municipality opened for business yesterday (Sunday) its new Dhs6.8 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, accompanied by senior officials of the civic body, toured the facility following its formal opening. The office would suffer such services as public health, building inspection, waste management and food inspection.

Lootah said opening of the new branch office forms part of the decentralization 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 noted.

The premises, built at a cost of Dhs6.8 million, consists of ground and first floor offices for accommodating services of different departments within Dubai Municipality, a car parking area and a landscaped green space.

Lootah said the new office would also help effectively manage the city's affairs in different areas including effective follow-up on public health matters, building regulations, food inspection and waste management.
The project was designed in the unique shape of all other Municipality branch offices. The ground floor has an area of 419 sq metres and the first floor 401 sq metres.

Mr. Lootah and senior officials also paid a visit to the DM office in Karama and discussed with officials and staff there matters related to enhancing efficiency and effectiveness of civic services.
