Uzhgorod will try to live on about 490 and a half million
This year, total revenue to the budget of the regional center will be 490,527,000,100 hryvnias. The same amount is planned to be spent. This was announced during the meeting of Uzhgorod executive committee today, January 29, by the head of financial department Petro Kharevych.
Members of the Executive Committee agreed to the draft budget, but it needs to be approved by the decision of the session, which will be convened on February 3.
The Secretary of Uzhgorod City Council, a member of the executive committee Svitlana Korol said that these figures are still subject to change. In particular, due to the fact that as of January 1, there are nearly 2 million on the balance in the Treasury left from the last year.
A member of Executive Committee, the head of the tax office in Uzhgorod Maria Badyda stressed that Uzhgorod is the only city in Transcarpathian region, which does not fulfill the budget figures from the Ministry of Finance.
Svitlana Korol replied to this that it happens because the Ministry of Finance figures for the regional centers are not the same as those for other cities. After a long discussion on how to solve this problem, members of the Executive Committee agreed to the draft budget.
Petro Kharevych said that in 2014, the City Council will be saving on everything.
The Executive Committee was held without the mayor Victor Pogorelov because he, according to the manager of the executive committee Daniella Gevorgyan, was in a hospital.
