The mayor of Mukachevo joined the campaign "Treasury, give the money to the city!"
The issue of local government's funds has been discussed for quite a long time now. And one of the first officials to speak on this issue was the mayor of Mukachevo, Zoltan Lendyel, particularly in his interview "Unfortunately, we have what we have" (the newspaper "Mukachivska Ratusha" 38 (151) of February 28, 2013) where he focused on the fact that the city government failed to pay the appropriate utilities and contractors over three million hryvnias for works and services performed 2012. At the same time, on the State Treasury account there were 24 million hryvnias belonging to Mukachevo.
Unfortunately, until now the mayor's appeals to the highest state leaders (the Prime Minister of Ukraine Mykola Azarov in October 2012 and the President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych in June 2013) on this issue have not had any positive results. This situation across the country made heads of local government in other regions also begin to express their disagreement, or even protest against this state of affairs. A striking confirmation of this is the campaign "Treasury, give the money to the city" which was launched recently and started to gain widespread popularity among both ordinary people and the heads of local governments, who are responsible for the situation in their areas, but can not use their own money.
Not surprisingly, the mayor of Mukachevo, Zoltan Lendyel expressed his strong support for the above campaign, being well aware that if the above problem is not solved, the economic collapse of local government is inevitable.
