Dh500 fine for unsighlty balconies in Sharjah

A Sharjah City Municipality spokesman confirmed that those who hang laundry or install satellite dishes in their balconies are now being fined Dh500 instead of Dh250 last year.

Several residents in the emirate who were recently handed notices of violation by the Sharjah City Municipality say they have been fined Dh500 even for ?negligible? reasons.

?The municipality imposes fines against tenants who hang their laundries on balconies or use these balconies as storage areas, since such violations endanger their lives or the lives of their kids, in addition to distorting the overall appearance of the building,? he added.
