The latest Ipoh City Council’s full-board meeting was held on Tuesday, October 4 at the main council building.
Mayor Dato’ Zamri Man spoke at length about his greening plan. It involved the maintenance and planting of trees within the city limits.
“We’ve spent RM1 million this year caring for the existing trees in the city. We want the trees to be around for future generations to enjoy,” he told reporters during the media conference following the meeting.
The Council will organise a mass multiracial wedding reception at the Ipoh City Square. It is slated for December. Some 30 to 40 couples, of all ethnicities, will be picked to participate in the wedding extravaganza.
“The event is meant for those who can’t afford a proper wedding reception so they too can enjoy being feted and looked at. The Council will make the necessary arrangements and all the newlyweds need to do is to present themselves,” he added.
