In a rare face-to-face encounter, senior administrators in the Jerusalem municipality met with east Jerusalem residents to hear complaints and respond to concerns at the Beit Hanina-Shuafat Community Center on Wednesday night, according to a municipality press release.

The meeting is part of a large-scale move in recent years by the Jerusalem municipality to improve services to city residents, especially  in east Jerusalem.

Dozens of residents took part in the event and received promises of assistance in a wide range of areas, including road maintenance, gardening, cleaning, parking, licensing and supervision, veterinary services, welfare, and business promotion.

The residents who took part in the event were briefed on the developments, changes and upgrades currently taking place in their neighborhood by the Northern District of the Jerusalem municipality in close cooperation with the Community Council.


“A meeting of this type is extremely important,” said Noam Ben-Nun, director of the Northern District of the Jerusalem municipality. “It’s especially important in order to provide services that are not always accessible to residents of east Jerusalem.”

“We received dozens of requests on a variety of issues, and we plan on providing a full and comprehensive response to each of them,” said Sima Sinai, director of the Authority for Quality of Service.
