The Head of the Slobodzeya administration Vasily Tishchenko at the end of the report addressed a number of clarifying and supplementing questions, identified problematic aspects that needed attention. They spoke, for example, about the need to update the material and technical base of housing and communal enterprises, as well as about the repair and re-equipment of most food units of educational institutions. A programmatic approach seems to be appropriate in both cases. They discussed the possibility of providing additional services by structures of local administrations on a paid basis. It was noted that it is necessary to take measures to strengthen the authority and enhance the practical significance of rural and settlement administrations. They focused on the problem of tax arrears in such areas as land use, entrepreneurship, and the use of natural resources. The problem is systemic in nature and requires an appropriate approach to the solution, they said at the meeting. The Slobodzeya administration was aimed at optimizing costs and intensifying work in terms of economic development: the income and expenses of the district should strive for balance, while the difference between receipts to the district treasury and spending is significant (with a significant excess of expenditure). The President noted that more attention should be paid to small and medium-sized businesses in this regard. This direction is as important as for any other for the agricultural region. Another recommendation made during the discussion is to strengthen the construction sector.
