Krasnodar, 2 October – Yug Times. Many housing management companies that operate in the Krasnodar region hide the data on the collected payments not to let their customers ask them where the money is really going.
Every month, an average dweller of the Kuban region gets utility bills for a total of several thousand rubles. But in fact few of them would really reflect seriously upon how efficiently their money is being used.
Reform of Housing and Communal Services is a special Internet portal opened by the federal Ministry for Construction and Housing and Communal Services so that all housing management companies should reveal there the information on their activities.
According to the analysts of the said portal, the housing management companies operating in Russia take at least 100 billion rubles out of official reporting systems.
Although it seems that the government has thought of the way to fight the ‘cloudiness’ of the market, presently only 16 management companies operating in Kuban have fully fulfilled these requirements. Most have only partially revealed the required data, and 133 have not done it at all.
According to law, the penalty to be imposed for such lawbreaking activity may reach 200,000 rubles. Consequently, the Housing Inspection may have fined these companies for about 350 million rubles, which would have been a good help for the region’s tumbledown utility system, but…
On the other hand, many management companies assess positively the government’s attempts to put things at the apartment buildings management market in order.
At the same time, there are many other management companies that continue to throw the money between different assignments and do not report their expenditures.
