AMMAN — Greater Irbid Municipality Governor Nabeel Kofahi said that the municipality operates according to the five principles it had set since the first day he took up his duties: justice, participatory involvement, transparency, responsibility, and progress, according to Jo24.اضافة اعلان

The governor talked about “a significant administrative imbalance” in employment in the governorate where of the 1,167 street sweepers recruited, only 506 are active workers, others work elsewhere, and some get paid while serving terms in jail.

He also said that the work of these municipal workers necessitates much physical strength, and some cannot cope.

Kofahi added that the city’s management of the environment has improved, as it became one of the top priorities for action in the current phase.

The municipality, he stressed, is not unable to collect debts from citizens; rather, it would not overburden them in the current difficult circumstances. For example, out of a total number of 21,000 stores, 8,200 are licensed, “which means that it is impossible to shut more than 10,000 stores that are a source of income for people,” and as such, the municipality accepted repayment of debts in installments, he said.
