History


When Shah Alam was developed as a township in 1963, the Shah Alam Town Board was founded under the Perbadanan Kemajuan Negeri Selangor or Selangor State Development Corporation (PKNS). The Town Board was then made Majlis Perbandaran Shah Alam (MPSA) or the Shah Alam Municipal Council when Shah Alam is declared the state capital of Selangor on 7 December 1978. The state secretary of Selangor at the time was chosen to be the head of the council or the Yang di-Pertua. The municipal council was based in a shophouse in Section 3 with an operational staff of 123, and began operations on 1 January 1979. The council then relocates to the Kompleks PKNS at Section 14 in 1981, and subsequently to its own building, the 28-storey Wisma MPSA in 1988.[3] With the granting of city status in 2000, the council is upgraded into the Shah Alam City Council or known as Majlis Bandaraya Shah Alam (MBSA).
