MIRI: Local councils should tweak their delivery system to be more competitive to meet the expectations of the people.

“The people, especially those in business, expect quality services. Not only will it save time, but an efficient better delivery system can possibly attract more foreign investors, too” said Ministry of Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government secretary-general Datuk Mohammad Mentek at the Local Government Authority Meeting at Pullman Hotel here yesterday.

“In fact, efficient local governments are likely to create more job opportunities and boost the economy.”

Mohammad said the focus should be on good governance.

Among the papers to be discussed during the two-day meeting include Miri City Smart Society, Low Carbon Cities Framework and Assessment System, Rotary Smart Parking System and Local Government’s role in Social Development.

Local Government Department director-general Dato Dr Abdul Rahman Awang, mayor Lawrence Lai and Miri City Council secretary Mohamad Junaidi Mohidin were among those present at the opening ceremony.
