Maani Meets Citizens within the Open Day Activities
Mayor Maani has instructed the concerned employees of the Greater Amman Municipality (GAM) on the necessity of setting working hours of the public gardens at the residential neighborhoods of all GAM regions, and consequently it was decided that the parks shall open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. in summer and to 8 p.m. in winter.
This has come during the open day meeting with the residents in GAM headquarters, and specifically in the Mayor's response to complaints of the citizens that centered on the annoyance coming from the youth gatherings and playing sports until late hours.
Mayor Maani stressed GAM's keenness on expanding the green space and the best utilization of the urban spaces in the residential complexes and transferring them into breathing spaces for the residents, especially children.
The Mayor called on the citizens to cooperate with the concerned agencies to maintain the public gardens and to help preserve their sustainability to realize the objective behind establishing them, and to do so with a sense of responsibility, moral commitment, and feeling with all visitors of the public gardens.
He further outlined that King Abdullah II Ibn Al Hussein public parks being under construction by GAM in Al Mggabalein region shall lessen the pressure on the small parks located in the residential gatherings.
Engineer Maani drew the attention to the fact that a meeting is scheduled next Saturday with the residents of the First Circle of Jabal (mountain) Amman, and that he is planning a tour of Sweileh region sometime next week to get updated on the service needs of the citizens and to listen to their demands.
In the open day GAM has arranged for the citizens to meet with the Mayor the last Sunday of every month, the Mayor listened to the demands and remarks of the Ammanites, which centered around regulations, opening and paving roads, public transport services, and extending new service, along with many other service issues. The Mayor instructed GAM concerned departments to study all the demands, remarks, and complaints, stressing that they should find the necessary solutions to these demands and to put them into action for the benefit of the citizens.
