For the next 1.5 weeks, the road should solve the problem with the snow removal on the streets of Novosibirsk — on this day, 31 January, said the mayor of Novosibirsk Anatoly Lokot.

— since 1 January, the snowfall intensity is large. Right now the 4th or 5th snowless day since Jan. We take this pause as much as possible, to focus efforts on release from snow of streets and yards. Was forced to enter emergency. I notice that it’s not an emergency. Emergency mode allows you to quickly take measures to use budget money. In addition to the 44 FZ (the law on the contract system in public procurement. — Approx. ed.) which provides for a lengthy tender procedures. Justified the introduction of emergency allows you to bypass the 44th and apply the law to the enterprises that have special technique and dramatically increase the number of harvesting machinery, said the mayor.
