The history of municipal order in Muscat goes back to the early 1920s when the first administrative organizations were formed to carry out municipal tasks such as cleaning and the organization of markets and buildings.
With the advent of the glorious Renaissance in 1970, Muscat Municipality entered a new age just like all other state authorities and bodies. This was the first promise of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said in his very first speech. He promised the Omanis a more modern life. The story of the municipality since then is really a saga of achievement and development that can be physically seen all over the Governorate of Muscat.
Muscat Municipality has its independent budget prepared within. The sources of the budget are either a governmental subsidy in the form of an allocated sum based on the population of Muscat Municipality or from the self-revenues that has become an important part of said budget in light of self-sufficiency.
