SOUTHERN MAZAR — Two committees from the water and municipal affairs ministries on Sunday inspected damages sustained by Mutah and Mazar streets in Karak due to the implementation of a sewage network project.
Malek Rawashdeh, secretary general of the Ministry of Water and Irrigation, said the committees had identified the damages caused by the project, which led to major collapses in the streets.
He added that the contractors will have to do maintenance work on the streets. Area residents on Saturday held a sit-in protesting against “bad” infrastructure, which they said threatens their safety.
A multi-million-dinar wastewater treatment plant in Karak Governorate will start operating early next month at a capacity of 7,060 cubic metres per day to improve the city’s health and environment conditions, government officials said on Monday.
Municipal Affairs Minister Walid Masri on Wednesday decided to annul the results of the municipal elections in Karak Governorate's municipalities of Mutah and Mazar, and Abdullah Bin Abi Rawaha.
Prime Minister Abdullah Ensour on Monday underlined that wars surrounding Jordan require the maximum level of consciousness and alertness in order to maintain national security and stability.
