MIRI, Aug 21: Miri Mayor Adam Yii is pleased with the progress of construction work on the new Miri City Council building.

“The construction of this 18-month project is on track,” he said.

“The project construction works are progressing very well and I am happy with the schedule.”

He was met this morning (Wednesday) after conducting an inspection at the site in Marina Bay.

As of July 25, overall completion was at 1.45 per cent .

The new Miri City Council building will be situated on a land area of 1.29 hectares (3.2 acres), involving a total cost of RM57,231,545.20. It is expected to be completed by December 24, 2020.

The building will feature a nine-storey tower which will house the council’s operational sections, including function rooms.

The City Hall tower takes on the shape of an oil barrel, honouring Miri as an oil producing region while its elevated form takes the shape of the sail of a boat.

The council has adopted the seahorse as the city’s official symbol. — DayakDaily
