Bahrain: Governmental Blog

Blogging goes governmental in Bahrain. Chan'ad writes that Manama Municipal Council has set up a blog to communicate and receive feedback from the city’s expatriate community (who form 85% of its population). Blog can be found here: http://manama-council.blogspot.com/
Probably this is the first official's blog in the Arab world!

    Does anyone know of another government or municipality blog outside the Arab world which allows comments? Any ideas?
