Municipality revamp plan gets Dubai nod

Dubai, January 26, 2008

The government has approved the new organisational structure of Dubai Municipality which includes five major sectors.

The sectors include corporate support, engineering and planning, environment and public health services, HSE monitoring and general support services sector.

Sheikh Hamdan Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, deputy ruler of Dubai, UAE minister of finance and industry and chairman of Dubai Municipality, has given approval for the new plans, said a top DM official.

Hussain Nasser Lootah, acting director general of Dubai Municipality, said the executive council of Dubai reviewed the new organisational structure and then recommended for its approval.

'The new set-up comes in line with the requirements of the Dubai Strategic Plan (DSP) and to ensure a smooth and effective implementation of the plans and programmes envisioned in the DSP,' he said.

Lootah noted that the municipality's strategic plan for 2007-2011 was also taken into consideration in shaping the new organisational structure.

'Based on this, some new departments were set up, some departments were merged, and names of some other departments were amended giving them more independence in line with advanced administrative systems and international standards in this regard, he noted.

All departments and organisational units dealing with international affairs and partnership such as the awards, organisations, international authorities, corporate marketing, exhibitions and the planning and development office will now report to the director general directly.

'The name of Public Relations and Organisations Department has been amended to read as clients relations department which will report to the deputy director general of the municipality.

Other departments reporting to him include corporate excellence department (new), and quality accreditation department.

Lootah has also issued a set of administrative decrees transferring and appointing directors for different departments.

They include Humaid Saeed Al Marri, who was appointed as the new director of the transportation department, Abdullah AbulRahman Abdullah as the new Director of the human resources department, Rashad Mohammed Bukhash as the new director of the architectural heritage department, Mohammed Noor Mashroom as the new director of the general projects department, and Arif AbulRahman Ahli as the new director of the finance department.-TradeArabia News Service
