The municipality official went on to say that 57% of this budget was spent in the field of construction, 25% on administration and services, and 18% on transfer and personnel expenses.

He referred to the most important challenges of the organization and added, “The biggest and most important challenge was coronavirus outbreak and subsequently the death tolls increased several times as much as the daily death tolls, and in this great crisis, with the limited facilities and help of the voluntary forces, we were able to overcome the problems and take significant measures.”
