At yesterday's exit meeting of the Interdepartmental commission which considered the Project of development of systems of water supply and water disposal in Nikolaev, the Nikolaev mayor Vladimir Chaika, using opportunity (at meeting there were representatives of the ministry of housing and communal services, the Ministries of Economics of Ukraine, the Ministry of protection of surrounding environment of Ukraine) probably I decided to intimidate the central authorities.
The Nikolaev mayor constantly says recently that the country now keeps only on local governments and complains that support in the solution of problems from Kiev isn't present any.
Here and yesterday Vladimir Dmitriyevich spoke about it. He remembered the project on construction of the bypass bridge through the river the Southern Bug at the expense of the Japanese credit.
"We struggle 8 years with this bridge. Here this year Japanese were ready to give already money and again a hitch in the Ministries", - V. Chaika declared.
According to the Nikolaev mayor he intends to achieve restriction of movement of heavy-load transport on the Nikolaev bridges and to make it it is possible rather. Probably at session of the Nikolaev city council in March.
We will remind that the similar decision was already made at session of city council by summer of 2008, but meanwhile isn't carried out.
"We will limit entry of trucks into the city on bridges. Restriction will be - to 20 tons. If we don't make it can there will be a trouble. I don't want it", - V. Chaika declared.
If it is made to reach from the West to the Crimea and to the south Ukraine, it is necessary to go round 160 km round Nikolaev.
"Let think of it in the transport Ministry, in the Ministry of Economics. We another have no ways. Otherwise, we will simply lose the city of Nikolaev as the thoroughfare", - the mayor emphasized.
Whether made the speech of ours "singing mayor" impression on representatives of the ministries and departments - it isn't known. But it is involuntarily remembered analogy between two mayors - Nikolaev and capital which, being in Nikolaev, the Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine carried out.
Vladimir Dmitriyevich certainly is right. Both Nikolaev bridges in a deplorable state and with it need to be done something, quickly. Probably, very soon, Vladimir Dmitriyevich, following the example of the Kiev colleague, will make paid an entrance on cemeteries, that подсобрать money for repair of bridges.
