"A week ago, I held a call-in on the social network Vkontakte. Over 300 questions were received. They were different, but still the overwhelming majority was related to local issues," he said during a meeting with the heads of administrations of city districts and municipal areas, which was held at the regional government via videoconference on Monday, February 17.
Ivan Belozertsev added that local authorities should interact more actively with the population.
"Take the practice of communicating with the population, primarily by meeting in person in towns, cities and districts. Nobody cancelled this, it's very important. But social networks and call-ins through social media instantly bring in information on problematic issues. This job needs to be done, too. Let's make a pilot project in the districts in March, and you will realize the need for it yourself, and then we will regularly conduct such call-ins," said the head of the region.
