Novera demands more money to clean Sofia

Date: 13.11.2008

Novera, the owner of the companies that hold the concession on cleaning Sofia, has asked the city hall for an increase of 25 per cent in the fees it is paid and a change in the method of used to calculate the fees, Bulgarian news agency BTA reported on November 13.

The company has made its demands known through a notarised communication to the Sofia municipality, this being the legal means under Bulgarian law that ensures that the communication has been received by the recipient. Two previous notarised communications in June and July have been left without answer by the city hall, company officials said.

Novera claims that its fee for cleaning services is subject to annual re-evaluation and indexation by a figure that is three percentage points over the inflation for the previous 12 months. The company said that there has been no such adjustment since 2004.

For the period 2004/07, cumulative inflation is 25.5 per cent, while petrol prices and the minimum wage over the 2004/08 period rose by more than 60 per cent and 80 per cent, respectively.

Novera said it invested 12 million euro in new technology and equipment, which had an impact on its balance books making an immediate re-evaluation necessary. "This would allow residents of the capital to get quality services up to European standards. We believe that the indexation of prices would ensure such a service," company spokesperson Dimitar Dimitrov said.
