Sverdlovsk region housing fees to rise
A moratorium on raising fees for housing will expire on July 1. After the moratorium expires, taxes on housing maintenance will increase by six percent, heat taxes will increase six percent, and water and gas taxes will grow 15 percent, OblGazeta.ru reports.
Anatoly Oglobin, the first deputy minister of economy and regional development of the Sverdlovsk region, spoke at the meeting about implementing socio-economic development of the region between 2011 and 2015. The speech included goals and objectives of the region that comply fully with the federal strategy.
Upon the speech's conclusion, Vladimir Nikitin, the chairman of the legislative assembly on legislation and social security, said that the speech failed to touch on specific problems within the municipalities. Such problems including financing municipal roads, housing issues and schools, according to OblGazeta.ru.
Despite the criticism, the rest of the conversation between the local and regional authorities was constructive. The representatives adopted a decision in which states will develop framework laws on the establishment of favored economic zones in the Sverdlovsk region.
After the meeting, representatives refused to comment and now must explain the hike in housing fees and the development of a short-term fiscal policy to their respective municipalities.
