One thought on “Council opens door for Shihasin Fund for commerical buildings

  1. Our government needs to have our own convention center where we can have council sessions and committee meeting in open meetings. We must create an environment to attract our citizens to participate in our government and exercise our rights to government our leaders directly. A commercial building is a big distraction in working closely between decision makers and citizens.
