Muscat Municipality prepares for Eid rush
Muscat Municipality is preparing to provide public services during the Eid al Adha festival. These include inspection of restaurants, cafeterias and foodstuff shops, as well as preparing the central slaughterhouse and public parks to receive people.
Muscat Municipality in Seeb has inspected 21 butcher shops in the souq and fined one due to noncompliance with the necessary health requirements.
Muscat Municipality, represented by the Directorate General of Health Affairs, in cooperation with the Directorate of Seeb and Amerat, is continuing its work to prepare the slaughterhouses through spraying and cleaning operations in view of Eid al Adha.
“The slaughterhouses are ready for Eid al Adha. All facilities have undergone maintenance, and faulty electrical and mechanical parts have been replaced. A fully automated device to skin cows has been installed, which will save a lot of time for the butchers and enable quicker service,” a Muscat Municipality official said.
As for the preparations in the Central Fruits and Vegetables Market in Mawaleh, the administration has coordinated with import companies to ensure the smooth and steady flow of vegetables and fruits, to meet the increased demand during the festival. The Directorate General of Afforestation, under the Muscat Municipality, has beautified public parks, gardens and pedestrians walkways in preparation for Eid al Adha.
