Penza, 5 January 2015. PenzaNews. The head of the Penza city administration Yuri Krivov has criticized snow cleaners for their poor work on freeing smaller streets and areas. “While city highways work can be deemed satisfactory, there are a lot of issues with cleaning smaller streets by residential estates and apartment buildings,” he said during an administration briefing on Monday, January 5.

According to heads of urban organizations present at the meeting, work is currently progressing in all troubled locations.
They also added that parked cars owned by citizens pose the most trouble for snow cleaners.
According Dmitry Semenov, deputy chairman of the Penza regional government, heads of urban companies must establish better cooperation with citizens and inform them of snow cleaning schedule during which people should park their cars elsewhere.
Later on in the meeting, Yuri Krivov ordered to work harder on registering violations undertaken by heads of those urban organizations that fail to maintain their territories in proper order.
“It is inacceptable when three days have passed, the head is no-go, and you sit idle. A protocol must be drawn up as early as on the second day,” stressed the official.
The meeting members also paid attention to cleaning building roofs of ice and icicles.
According to Pavel Alexandrov, head of urban development department, 65 workers and 5 boom platforms are currently dealing with the issue.
“The dangerous locations are fenced off by warning tape,” he noted.
According to the press service of the Penza administration, most saddle-roofed houses in the city are located in the Factory neighborhood of the city, and they will be thoroughly cleaned by the evening of Tuesday, January 6.
