Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh, Salam Sejahtera, Salam 1 Malaysia and Salam Perak Aman Jaya.

            Ipoh City Council started as a Sanitary Board in 1893, formed by the British.  From its gradual and sturdy development, it obtained its Municipal status in 1962 and was declared a city on May 27, 1988.

            Today Ipoh covers an area of 643 km square with a population of 750 people.  Its main objective is to provide health and town services, planning & development control, traffic management, maintenance, building plan approval, infrastructure, licensing and enforcement of Local Authority By Laws. Its function is now extended to assisting the state authority in tourism and investment industry.

            Thus, Ipoh City Council needs to practise a Paradigm Shift for a better service to the citizens of Ipoh and to make the city sustainable.  I am sure, with the good teamwork and cooperation of the Councillors and all staff; I would be able to bring Ipoh City Council to a better standard.

            I am sure this web page would be another communication medium between the Council and its customers and citizens for an on-going municipal service.  With its slogan Clean, Green & Developed, I really hope that we can get a very good cooperation from our customers for the betterment of our services.

            Lastly, thank you for browsing this web page.  I hope that all suggestions or positive comments would make this web page a better medium in order to create the best services to our customers and citizens of Ipoh City.


Mayor of Ipoh City
