The mayor of Tripoli, Mr Abdulrauf Beitelmal, has a tough job maintaining order and peace in the city. The destruction of many of the city’s institutions has led to many challenges.
Abdulrauf, despite difficulties, exudes optimism, setting down the initial priorities in the city, including: street cleaning, resurfacing roads, reinstating traffic signs, providing a solution to traffic jams, rebuilding the public transport system, and cleaning up public parks.
Of these, the absolute priority has become waste management.
While not all of these are the responsibility of the Council, the mayor and Council have taken up the task of rebuilding the city.
