The Director General of Kuwait Municipality, Engineer Ahmed Al-Manfouhi, is going to issue an administrative decision regulating work timings for contractors and those who do business in private housing areas, with the exception of new areas under construction.
A local Arabic daily said Al-Manfouhi has asked the Public Authority for Manpower its opinion regarding the dates to be determined (morning and evening) in order to complete the procedures followed in this regard.
Al-Manfouhi addressed PAM regarding the observation that “some contractors and those doing construction work in private housing areas throughout the night, which causes disturbance and inconvenience to the residents, given the nature of private housing areas.”
He pointed out that Municipal Law No. 33/2016 grants the municipality the right to take the necessary measures to preserve the health of the population and this falls within the powers of the executive body.
