About Dubai Municipality

Dubai Municipality was founded in 1954 commencing its activities with a cadre of seven employees undertaking simple tasks to keep the city clean. The first decree establishing the Municipality was issued on February 28, 1957, whereby 23 municipal council members were appointed from the elders of the country and traders. It gave the Municipality specific powers, the most important of which was to take care of health and architectural affairs of the city as well as to organize construction and beautification of the city and provide constructive suggestions to the government.

Dubai Municipality has developed significantly since then, evolving over the years and taking on multiple tasks. The Municipality grew in line with the expansion of the Emirate of Dubai, currently it has 11,000 employees working in 34 departments. It is one of the largest governmental institutions in terms of services rendered and projects executed. The municipality is a leading driver of growth and evolution of the Emirate of Dubai.
