About Western Region Municipality (WRM)

In May 2006 HH Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE and ruler of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, issued law no. 10 stating the Western Region Municipality shall operate independently with full legal capacity (under the umbrella of the Department of Municipal Affairs). The law also stated that the municipality is to be administered by the administrative body, constituted by a number of departments and specialized sections in accordance with the organizational structure adopted by the municipal Council. It is headed by the General Manager of the Municipality, and is responsible for providing and delivering municipal services to the people of the Western Region and to implement the decisions of the municipal council and all the internal and relevant regulations issued by the council. A municipal authority was established to support the Municipal Council, which is responsible for raising the level of services throughout the region. The municipal council contains 16 members, with representatives from each of the region’s six main areas: Madinat Zayed, Mirfa, Liwa, Sila, Ghayathi and Delma to encourage wider participation on decision making.
