Omsk authorities tried to shift responsibility for street cleaning to contractors

Omsk businessmen and the prosecutor’s office opposed the authorities’ initiative to expand the clearing zone of adjacent territories for owners of commercial buildings and other objects. The project was ‘concluded’ at public council hearings today, March 24.

According to the initiative of officials, the borders of adjacent territories were to be doubled. According to Alexei Zadorozhny, director of the administration control department, the authors of the project were guided by the experience of Belgorod, Ufa, Orenburg, Samara and other cities.

The initiative was harshly criticized by the chairman of the Omsk Regional Union of Entrepreneurs, Ilya Nikolin. As an example, he cited a 200 square meter outlet, the owner of which should clean one and a half thousand “squares” around the store.

“Let’s imagine a portrait of this entrepreneur. This, as a rule, is a micro or small business, the income of which is about 100,000 rubles per month. Two inspections per month, each of which is 20,000 rubles, and this store will have to close, since there will be no economic feasibility in its activities, ”quotes speaker Kommercheskie Vesti.

According to Nikolin, the project does not take into account the fact that many businesses face the roadway. This means that the question of the delimitation of competences for road cleaning arises.

The prosecution also opposed the project. Employees of the department said that the increase in the boundaries of adjacent territories is not justified and not justified from an economic point of view.

Previously, residents of Omsk have repeatedly complained about the poor quality of street cleaning, but the authorities are unable to solve the problem with the available forces of public services. In particular, huge snowdrifts covered the crosswalk near house No. 66-a along Energetikov Street.
