Svetlana Alexandrova, head of the municipal land control office of the Penza city administration, presented her monitoring report and announced that the officials discovered a total of 17 illegal shopping and food kiosks in the city center and frontage line, as well as 11 more payday loan offices housed in illegal kiosks.
“There are a total of 115 revealed illegal non-stationary objects discovered in Penza city. The city administration will continue to organize checks and remove illegally occupied areas,” she stressed.
In turn, Nadezhda Milyaeva, head of Business, Industry and Consumer Market Development Department in the city administration, added that all these illegal kiosks were included in a special list.
“We already have a first success. We invited a businessman, who illegally ‘smacked’ seven such kiosks onto Penza streets, for a talk with the first deputy [head of the city administration] Vladimir Anatolyevich [Popkov] to encourage him [the businessman] remove these kiosks,” she explained.
In reply, Victor Kuvaytsev asked about the effectiveness of such talks and the form the future procedure on the issue would take.
“I believe these locations will be removed in January,” Nadezhda Milyaeva assured him.
According to Victor Kuvaytsev, the process to remove illegal kiosks must gain a legal component.
“I have – and it’s not just me, all citizens have a question: when those kiosks were installed, didn’t anybody notice them at all? We are calling them illegal right now. Didn’t anybody in the city see them being installed?” the mayor asked.
He instructed a removal plan and a pre-set removal date for each such kiosk.
“Again, I want to repeat: we reviewed the situation, they spawned like mushrooms. Let’s work on getting everything in order,” stressed the head of Penza city administration.
