RIA Novosti

The Governor of the Novosibirsk region Vladimir Gorodetsky rejected the decision on increase of tariffs for housing and communal services in the region by 15%. About it reports TASS.

“I signed today a decree on introducing changes in the tariff codes. From 1 July fees will rise by 4% in Novosibirsk and in all the districts of the region”, – said Gorodetsky.

As it became known, the majority of deputies of municipalities of the Novosibirsk region has supported the increase of payment for utility services from 1 July of the current year by 15%. This decision was based on wear of the equipment and utilities.

This decision provoked a negative reaction from society, which developed into regular meetings. In turn, local authorities have insisted on increase in a tariff and offered to partially compensate the residents of the growth rates.

Last year it was reported that the head of the FAS has threatened governors with criminal cases for the increase in utility tariffs.
