[ About SMC < Major Policy ]

 

In the process to improve the living standard and the urban environment, Sibu Municipal Council has been bold enough to make some painful but rewarding policy decisions. These major policy decisions received wide spread resistance initially. However, through careful education, active persuasion and consultation, we were able to convince the people. Today, time proves that all decisions are made for the general well being of the people.
