Sofia Well Braced for Coming Winter

Date: 04.12.2009

Every winter, without fail, authorities in Bulgaria are surprised by weather and get caught with their pants down when it comes tothe snow removal machinery ready for the first heavy snowfalls

Sofia recently elected mayor has assured that this year, unlike any other, authorities in the Bulgarian capital will not be surprised by the first snow and will be well prepared when it comes tothe removal machinery ready.

“A few companies will be hired this year for removing the snow, unlike the previous year when it was all up to one company. The important thing is that we have good coordination,” added Yordanka Fandakova.

The new mayor, who swept the elections in November, said she plans the establishment of municipal police, which, according to her, is the most efficient way to deal with law violations.

Fandakova described as her top priority the efficient collection and disposal of garbage from the capital in a bid to prevent a new waste crisis.

“I have been touring different districts in the capital for the last few weeks to see what the situation is like. There is certainly a need to improve many things, but we are working on that,” Fandakova said.

She explained that the new tenders for garbage collection will set a bunch of new requirements for the bidding companies that will aim at better quality of the service.

A week ago the European Commission said it will pursue court action against Bulgaria for failing to properly implement EU waste law.

The case concerns inadequate waste disposal in the capital Sofia, which should have had an adequate network of waste disposal installations in place by the time of its accession on 1 January 2007 but a solution remains some years away, the Commission said.

This is the first trial launched by the European Commission against the EU newcomer.
