Sibu Municipal Council is committed to providing quality services to the Sibu community in four key areas :-

  • Developing A Sense Of Community

  • Facilities Management

  • Infrastructure Services

  • Municipal Services

Developing A Sense Of Community

Sibu Municipal Council has an important responsibility to promote and nurture a sense of civic consciousness and pride at all levels throughout the Sibu community. People must be encouraged to feel a sense of ownership and belonging of their town - it's infrastructure, services and facilities.

  • A Regulatory Role

    Sibu Municipal Council therefore has to define by-laws and regulations which support this development of a sense of community. Sibu Municipal Council's regulatory role is not designed to constrain, restrict or limit the freedom or quality of life of the community - rather it is to encourage a sense of community and to protect it from the potential deprivations by just a few.

  • An Education Role

    Sibu Municipal Council has a responsibility to disseminate and communicate these by-laws and regulations to the community at large, proactively endeavouring to educate the community as to how these by-laws and regulations will benefit them.

  • An Enforcement Role

    A necessary adjunct to this regulatory role is Sibu Municipal Council's role as an enforcer, to ensure that the Sibu community as a whole is protected and nurtured against minority, selfish and self-interest.
