AMMAN —Al Ghad— An informed source with the Greater Amman Municipality confirmed to Al Ghad that the Municipal budget for the coming year, 2017, will be distinctly focused on capital expenditure, with an allocated budget of nearly JOD500 million.

Set to finance the Municipality’s projects in all 22 provinces, the source reaffirms there is a shift within the municipal administration to maximise revenue through increasing operational proficiency and minimising gross expenses.

For the current year, 2016, the Municipality had previously requested lowering the budget by JOD71 million, from JOD497 million to JOD426 million, with assurances that the provision of basic infrastructural and municipal services will not be affected.
