KUCHING: Nov 23: In light of several public requests to capture aerial views of Miri City via the rooftop (Level 10) of Miri City Hall at Marina Bay, Miri City Council has, after due consideration, acceded to the requests for the time with conditions in place.

In a press statement issued today, it said Level 10 of Miri City Hall will only be opened to the public from December 1, 2021, as the remaining cleaning works are still in progress and expected to be completed by then.

The visit to the rooftop, which is free of charge, will be a guided tour with security personnel and council staff members present and opening hours will be confined from 5pm to 8pm every day.

The maximum number of persons permitted to visit Level 10 at any one time is 20 persons with a maximum duration of 25 minutes for each person.

Visitors are reminded to adhere to security instructions as laid down by the Miri City Council, as well as Covid-19 standard operating procedures (SOPs) as required by the authorities.

The council also stated that its employees and workers shall not be held responsible in the event that visitors fail to observe any of the conditions as stipulated or for any mishaps or losses that might occur.

It also said that the council has full discretion to cease or review permission for public access to the rooftop if deemed necessary. — DayakDaily
