Officials to poll Yekaterinburg residents on division of capitol
Proposals have been introduced to subdivide the city into new administrative areas to streamline government operations--a move criticized by the officials. Proponents of the Ural capital's division, however, said the reform is not binding, Ekburg.ru reports.
The issue will be discussed again at the next city meeting.
Yekaterinburg is the fourth largest city in Russia and is the administrative capital of the Sverdlovsk region. The city has a population of more than one million people. It is the industrial and cultural center of the Ural Federal District, according to Ekburg.ru.
