When it comes to delivering the public services to the residents living in its municipal scope, Beirut’s municipality could do better. Below is a sample of its superfluous expenses:
-    LBP 5 million, the cost of annual subscription to a Beirut’s daily newspaper. 
-    LBP 18.6 million for a charity in Beirut tasked with burying the dead. It is noteworthy that the charity receives high fees from the families of the deceased in exchange for their services and thus does not deliver them free of charge.

-    LBP 19.8 million for paving with granite the floor of a tunnel in the capital.
-    LBP 35.2 million for pest control, the benefits of which are yet to become clear.
