Over the past few years non in the first time Gomel City Council of Deputies «started» the process of creating bodies of territorial self-government. Council watched for a long time and tried on a different experience in other cities… And now finally decided, but … there was confusion.



Went through the “proven way”…

In November 2014, Gomel City Council of Deputies incorporated in the agenda of the seventh session the issues of territorial self-government bodies in the city of Gomel. The Chief of the City Council — Ivan Borodinchik said: «Gomel`s dwellers need to be indifferent to what is going on … they need to participate in solving problems, related to the quality of accommodation …».
Head of the department of organizational and personnel work of City Council Tatiana Marchenko explained that today there is no clear unity in structure, that necessary to have. In the preparation of the issue, it was explored and analyzed experience in Minsk, Grodno and Zhlobin. All these cities went towards the creation of territorial self-government in the territory of housing offices.
At the beginning of November 2014 Gomel went after the Minsk, Grodno and Zhlobin on the proven path. And after two weeks managed to go to a dead end … On 26 of November 27 commissioners by the disposition from the high authorities held meeting for creating the Committee of public self-government in the territory of the housing office 9 «Selmashevskoe.» They approved the Statute and elected seven members of the Committee of TPSG.

Didn`t create, so at least «participated»

The author of these lines was elected among the 7 members of the Committee of territorial public self-government (TPSG). But when I started to check the documents, it was found that 3 members of the TPSG became members in the violation of point 1 of Article 29 of the Law «About local government and self-government in the Republic of Belarus». Members of the collegial body TPSG must be permanent resident on the part of the administrative-territorial district, in which creates this organ of territorial public self-government. That is, in the territory of the housing department-9.
It was just the top command given: «Choose, without limits!» … And there were «chosen»: deputy city Council of deputies Igor Korotkevich, district inspector of the district police department Andrey Suglob and vice director of school on educational work — Irina Makanina.
But they all don`t live on the territory of the creation of the TPSG body. Therefore, the process put on the brakes.
Today there is a lull in this question. Administration of Zheleznodorozhniy District is honestly acknowledged «the available gaps.» Gomel City Council of Deputies waiting for a clear and understandable procedure, creating of mechanisms from the regional Council of deputies. Gomel City Council is developing a unified form of the registration certificate of authority collegial TPSG … And concerned citizens on their places are «warmed up» — nothing is created, so at least «participated»
