Sofia We are pleased with the meeting with the Prime Minister Boyko Borisov. This was informed by journalists the mayor of Kalofer and president of the National Association of Mayors of Small Settlements Roumen Stoyanov after a meeting with Prime Minister Boyko Borisov, a journalist FOCUS news agency.
The meeting was at the invitation of the Prime Minister, discussing the applications of mayorships that insist on autonomous budget and greater independence than the large municipalities.
"This long-awaited meeting passed in a very good environment. We achieved a good result in the first part of our requests: the budgetary frameworks. Each settlement will have a budget framework. The mayor of the municipality, as we wish, would be obliged to comply with it, According to the law, which must be resolved within a week, the mayor will also participate in the control of public procurement. These are the most important things that we have arrived, "explained Stoyanov. "The second part affects the threshold for the establishment of a municipality," he said, and specified that there would be a new meeting attended by the Association of Municipalities. "Thanks to the government for receiving and listening to us, much of the problems we had will be resolved in the future. I think this will happen within a maximum period of two months," added Romanian Stoyanov. "We will not protest at the moment. We are happy," he explained. According to him, there should be a "screech", because until the changes in the legislation have been resolved, the small municipalities can not force the big ones to do their job.
"We do not have political goals or motivated by such demands. We do not have permission to ask any of our colleagues to be a part. They are independent, supported by the BSP," said Stoyano and stated that the association should not be politically linked.
