This is a sub-section under engineering section of Works Department in the directorate of Works and Technical Services. Presently, two Engineering Assistants are put in charge of building in the Municipality.
This sub-section is responsible for the management of all Municipality houses/offices and also to guide the public who are building houses within the Municipality to build as per the required standard.
The Municipal headquarters has its offices located at the Mayor’s garden in Lira town. The office condition is generally crowded since there is one storage building accommodating almost all the staff at the headquarters except the engineering department that is located in the yard.
The Municipality owns 2residential blocks occupied by its senior staff. Both blocks are located in senior quarters. However, it is with no doubt that most of the Municipality staffs are not accommodated, this is because of lack of adequate houses. This arises due to the sale of most of the Municipality houses to private hands.
