Funds set aside for only 12 projects

Funds have been set aside for only 12 of 181 projects approved by the provisional municipals councils, it emerged yesterday.

Light relief burdened by politics

What is wrong with Hong Kong? Too much politics getting in the way? As usual, the Urban Council and the Tourist Board don't seem to be talking.

Mini-buses spoiling pleasant spot

Could the Urban Council please explain why an ever increasing number of mini buses belonging to upmarket apartment complexes are being allowed to wait, with their engines running, outside City Hall?
