KUWAIT: Kuwait Municipality Director Ahmad Al-Manfouhi stressed the Municipality has allocated general locations for mobile trucks and has not issued individual licenses per truck. Responding to an inquiry by Municipal Councilmember Hassan Kamal in this regard, Manfouhi explained nine locations had been set of 5,000 sq m each according to certain conditions, adding that trucks that do not comply with the set location will be fined by the Municipality and Ministry of Commerce and Industry (MoCI).
Responding to another inquiry filed by Municipal Councilmember Meshaal Al-Hamdhan concerning fencing plots number 2,523 and 2,524 in Bnaider chalets area, Manfouhi stressed the area is government property and it is not the Municipality’s duty to fence those plots.
In another municipal concern, the Municipality stressed that utilizing street billboards is done through public bidding and in case the investing company wishes to increase the number of billboards, an official request has to be made and reviewed by the Municipality’s follow-up committee for further approvals.
Manfouhi also responded to an inquiry by Municipal Councilmember Maha Al-Baghli concerning disposal of electronic waste. He stressed such waste is not buried in the Municipality’s landfill sites but is usually separated and sent to relevant bodies pending recycling or re-exporting them.
