On Monday, the director of “Yaroslavlzakazchik” JSC, Sergey Kalinin, began his duties on a voluntary basis as the Deputy Mayor for Construction.
As Construction.ru was told by the press office of the city administration, this manner of working has been chosen in order not to spend budget money on the early pre-election of a municipal deputy.
In summer, when Kalinin resigns in connection with the termination of his term of office, he will be officially appointed to a new position.
Since there is a huge amount of trouble in the construction sector in Yaroslavl, such as displacement from dilapidated and hazardous housing, it was decided that Mr Kalinin should take up his duties immediately.
Previously, the position of the Deputy Mayor for Construction of Yaroslavl was held by Leonid Komarov. However at the end of 2015 he was arrested on charges of fraud and at present he is in Korovniki prison.
