Mayors decided to take control over forest logging

Date: 22.09.2008

Mayors of 35 municipalities across Bulgaria mull setting up a union in order to coordinate their forest management efforts and increase their control powers. This is what ]the mayor of Ihtiman Margarita Petkova announced.

The planned national union will be established 25 September as municipalities with over 2.2 million decares of forests are invited for membership.

Once founded, the union will be pushing for legislative amendments towards a more transparent process of logging authorization and procurement.

The founding municipalities say the union will be fighting for forest preservation. They admit though, they’ve invited the mayors of Svoge and Elin Pelin – where some serious forest area swaps have been reported – for membership.
