Jalan Jaksa No. 8
Hours: 8am – 4pm
For the past 12 months, the office of the kelurahan (village) of Kebon Sirih has operated out of a rented office in Jalan KH. Wahid Hasyim just around corner from Jalan Jaksa, as a new kelurahan building is currently under construction. They intend to move back in January 2006.
Pak H. Aris Husaeni is the Lurah (village chief) of Kebon Sirih, which of course includes Jalan Jaksa, and he is responsible to providing services to the people of this area.
The area of the kelurahan of Kebon Sirih comprises Jl. Thamrin, Jl. KH. Wahid Hasyim, Jl. Kebon Sirih Raya, Jl. Jaksa, Jl. Menteng Raya, and Jl. KH. Agus Salim (also commonly known as Jl. Sabang). The area is part of the kecamatan (district) of Menteng, which is known as an “elite area“.
For many years, the Lurah has been endeavoring to develop Jalan Jaksa to a night entertainment district, or wisata malam. He works in cooperation with the community in Jalan Jaksa. Because of the importance of this street, the kelurahan is based here. In the new building, the 4th floor will be dedicated as a special place as a tourism information center.
As the chief of Kebon Sirih, Pak Aris along with all his staff are endeavoring to serve the community as best as they can with the limited resources they have. Ibu Srie, an official at the kelurahan, says, “We always try to give the best for all the community in Kebon Sirih, especially for Jalan Jaksa, because Jalan Jaksa is a night entertainment area and this is our priority”.
All the kelurahan officials consider highly important the issue of safety and security in the street.
