Ras Al Khaimah Municipality was established in 1959 by an Emiri decree issued by His Highness Sheikh Saqr bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, may Allah have mercy on him, where the municipality since the first years of its inception has had to bear a great responsibility in accomplishing many of the tasks on behalf of different authorities in the emirate such as the Lands, ports and traffic departments, in addition to its work to ensure a clean environment free of contaminants and a decent life for members of the community that secure factors of health and safety, and in order to cope with the global developments and progress in the field of municipal work, the municipality in the mid-sixties had renewed the administrative structure of the department which includes a range of departments and divisions, in order to carry out the tasks entrusted to it.
