Volodymyr Chubirko: "Uzhgorod Vodokanal should notbe postponed for the money shall not fall from heaven "(OPINION)
Chairman of the Transcarpathian Regional Council shared his thoughts on the status of Vodokanal of Uzhgorod on its Facebook page :
"Back to water issue again. A few weeks ago I wrote that the mayor, the city council, and management of water utility should immediately take steps to change the rules of the company and establish effective managerial work to avoid the growth of debt and prevent disconnection from the city water supply. I warned that to resolve the situation as it was last year (when the regional council closed the water utility debts to "Zakarpattyaoblenergo", using the opportunity to repay the difference in rates of almost 15 million UAH) will no longer be possible. They did not hear me. And now it is too late. But smart politicians who are happy to build their PR in an emergency situation have already emerged.
None of Uzhgorod Mayors – neither the current one, nor his predecessors – have done anything to resolve the situation with the accumulation of debt, and only waited until the money would "fall from the sky" - from the region or Kyiv. In the current political and economic conditions that should not be expected. We need to start working, improve efficiency, reduce costs, update network, and implement management of European standard. And, most importantly, eradicate corruption in the company. With such a high price for water supply, Uzhgorod residents should not hear about any debts of Vodokanal debt "- summed up Volodymyr Chubirko.
