Alexander Vasilyev, Victor Kuvaytsev discuss situation with people resettlement to Zarya
Penza, 28 March 2016. PenzaNews. The current situation over resettlement of people from the Zavodskoy residential area to Zarya in Penza became the main topic of discussion during the meeting between the regional LDPR branch coordinator Alexander Vasilyev and the city administration head Victor Kuvaytsev on Monday, March 28.
At the meeting, Alexander Vasilyev reminded that Penza Liberal Democrats have been involved in finding solution to the problem since the end of the past year, while the issue itself went beyond the scope of a friction between the civilians and the officials and transformed into a full-fledged scandal.
“Earlier, people simply were not ready to swap their current residence practically in the city center for a flat in the Zarya residential area. But now, we learned that some people were illegally recognized as dilapidated,” he explained.
Alexander Vasilyev urged the Penza city mayor to personally monitor and scrutinize the issue.
“How did it happen that people living in the houses, which were illegally recognized as dilapidated, received letters signed by the official [Yuri] Ilyin [Penza vice mayor] with demands for them to demolish houses on their own by 30 March 2016?” the leader of Penza Liberal Democrats expressed his outrage.
He placed particular emphasis on the fact that such demands are illegal, as the Penza city administration is responsible for demolishing these houses and finding new housing for their residents, and the city mayor agreed with that notion.
Victor Kuvaytsev announced that a dedicated task force will conduct visual inspections of the buildings and meet their residents to learn about their readiness to move or a lack thereof.
Also, the Penza mayor assured that the houses in question will not be demolished or forcefully resettled until the situation is fully scrutinized and analyzed.
In addition, Victor Kuvaytsev said he is ready to personally meet with the people living in the Zavodskoy city area to achieve a compromise.
