Al Ain city Municipality constitutes one of several departments within the Municipal Affairs Authority. It is a government institution basically directed to serve Al Ain Area, which covers Al Ain City and the neighboring outskirts.

Al Ain  city Municipality Department was established in 1967. An Emiri Decree was issued in 1974 AD to control and regulate the city's affairs. It was after that date that Al Ain Municipality started to function as a government department that is directed to provide wide range services to Al Ain City.

Al Ain  city Municipality stands as a leading institution of development in the area. This is due to the role it plays and the programs and services it renders for improving the quality of life to the highest possible standards.

This strategy is expected to be implemented through "Providing such distinguished municipal services and advanced infrastructure to Al Ain City and the surrounding areas, by qualified staff and advanced systems, while taking into account the peculiarity and genuineness of the City", abiding in the same time by the values stemming from heritage, leadership, credibility, quality, innovation, participation and community service within the aims of this strategy.
