KUWAIT: The Municipal Council yesterday agreed to allocate a two-square-kilometer area in Sheqaya to be used by Public Authority for Industry for recycling used tires.
During its weekly meeting, the council also agreed to adjust the allowed building areas at Abu Fatira and Ardiya industrial areas to be 100 percent of the total area including basements and ground floors, and 80 percent starting from the first floor upwards. In this regard, deputy director for Ahmadi and Hawally affairs Faisal Sadeq said that a special committee had been formed including elements from various ministries to discuss and approve the new amendments.
Speaking at the meeting, council member Hassan Kamal slammed the Minister of State for Municipal Affairs Essa Al-Kandari’s rejection of the council’s proposal to hire retired citizens and accused him of looking down upon the entire council. “He seemed as if he was saying that is none of your business,” he underlined.
The court of misdemeanor yesterday adjourned hearing a case filed against 13 people, including Kuwaiti citizens and Asian nationals, for harboring former MP Musallam Al-Barrak. The next hearing was set for April 11, when state security detective in charge could be summoned for testimony.
