Today, on January 12, in the Small Hall of the Executive Committee of the City Soviet of People's Deputies consideration of the city budget for 2009 took place. On this action there was also the mayor Valadimir Chaika who has acted as the chief critic of the considered document.
So, this year the budget is sufficient, that is the sum of expenses and the income is identical. Income in the budget (the general fund) is provided in the sum of 605 million UAH that is significantly less than the last year's income.
As Vladimir Chaika declared, this year procedure of formation of the local budget was broken, the state budget was also adopted with violations of the budgetary legislation. The mayor of Nikolaev also complained that today at local government select all control levers, and regions won't be able to affect even own destiny.
Summing up budget considerations, Vladimir Dmitriyevich declared that "we yet had no such bad budget", meaning that fact that the budget the current year practically doesn't provide assignment for capital investments. "How we will be able to look in the face to children and their parents if to us didn't allocate kopeks for construction of playgrounds, acquisition of iatrotechnics and other? ", - the mayor was indignant.
Funds in Nikolaev are also allocated for repair of buildings on a minimum. It is remarkable that in connection with current situation, repair of buildings in Nikolaev will be carried out only in the presence of the act of accident rate of the building.
