Tbilisi Mayor’s Office tightening belt2010-11-23 17:26
Considering the general economic situation in the country, Tbilisi is tightening its belt. Only five million two hundred and seventy thousand laris will be allocated next year for the city development. The allocated means are supposed to turn Georgia's largest city into a fashionable venue and a source of opportunities. The point is that people are going to meet each other even without money, for they move along the city regardless of their purse. As for the opportunities, they won't be numerous judging by the city administrator and his colleagues' scanty means.
City Administrator Gigi Ugulava will have to console himself by the fact that not only the mayor's office will suffer from the lack of money next year. The state budget confirmed by Georgian parliament has been surprising for many officials. For example, the sponsorship of such important administrations as Ministry of Finance, Regional Development and Infrastructure, Ministry of Education, Ministry of Agriculture and Ministry for Refugees has been reduced. It looks like the minister for reintegration has been so much exasperated by the reduction of the moneybox that he decided to become an ambassador to the United States.
Instead, the administrations of Veronika Kobalia, Khatuna Kalmakhelidze and Vano Merabishvili will, on the contrary, receive additional allowances in 2011. Now, after the second budget adjustment, the next-year projected economic growth has been increased from 4,5 to 5,5 percent, which means that the two young ladies and the harsh "internal" minister will have to work harder for the benefit of the Caucasian republic, especially the minister of economy who has been given credence and was allowed to delay the moment of complete economic crash due to increased sponsorship.
While the deprived ones are shedding tears, Minister of Finance Kakha Baindurashvili explains: budget changes are conditioned by the increased tax yield, which has amounted to approximately 20 million laris in credit, which is planned to be spent on the construction of a high-voltage power line, so these officials will have to handle money difficulties on their own.
