IF YOU HAVE AIR-CONDITIONER, YOU HAVE MORE RUBBISH

Cleaning fee is directly proportional to the volume of consumed electricity. From now on, the fee for cleaning is directly connected to the consumed electricity. The population will have to pay 5 tetri per 1 kilowatt of electricity.

Tariel Khizaneishvili, Deputy Mayor of Tbilisi:’ The monthly paid sum for cleaning makes up GEL 3 million but the sum collected from the fees isn’t more than 2 million and the Mayor’s office has to make subsidies. It isn’t fair because

there are flats in which several tenants are registered who actually don’t live there and the flat-owner has to pay extra money. The customer has to pay in accordance with the number of tenants and the indicator of it will be the amount of consumed electricity. Through this system the cleaning expanses will be raised for only 25% of the inhabitants of Tbilisi’.

Tina Khidasheli, City Council member: ‘We certainly have to pay the cleaning fees but the tariff has to be adequate to the service, hasn’t it? It’s very easy to determine the tariff. If on the one hand you know how much it costs to clean Tbilisi and on the other - the number of inhabitants, you just have to divide the figure and there is the factor. The city authorities’ offer to the inhabitants is absurd. So what, thereby, if you have an air-conditioner, it means that you produce more garbage! The city authorities know the cost of cleaning of the city but they aren’t telling us the number of inhabitants. The ‘National Movement’ made a very interesting ‘confession’ at the session.

One more tax that will be a heavy burden for the population of Tbilisi, added to the expenses for water-meter installation:

According to our information, at the first stage 50 000 meters are to be installed. The expenses for installation and meter-price make GEL 100 and it must be paid by the customer. We checked the meter price at the world market and it’s about GEL 20-45. At the same time, the consumer has to install the meter offered by the ‘Georgian Water and Co’. Nowhere else in the world there is such a demand. The consumer has the right to choose the meter; it isn’t up to the supplying company. Neither has the company the right to oblige the consumer to install the meter, as in accordance with GNERC Decision # 32, dated 2008, the meters can be installed only in case the consumer desires so. According to our source of information, the meters are supplied from Israel through a reseller at a reduced price.

The company that has to make installations is paid a scanty sum and they are strictly warned not to reveal the sum paid by their employer.
