If you’re living or working in Kuala Lumpur, here’s your chance to share ideas on how to improve our nation’s capital.

The Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) is polling for opinions on how it should better spend its 2022 budget and invites people to decide what the city should prioritize to make it a better place.

DBKL’s jurisdiction covers almost 250 square kilometres and is responsible for things like city planning and maintenance, transportation and traffic management, public works, public housing, environmental protection and a bunch of other stuff like collect parking fees (and fining people for not paying said fees).
