MOSCOW, April 20 (Itar-Tass) —— Budgets of the municipalities attached to Moscow will grow by approximately one-fourth, Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said at a conference on Friday.
“Upon their affiliation to Moscow, the municipalities must retain their tax incomes. In addition, municipal budgets will enlarge through the system of inter-budget relations,” he said. “In the opinion of experts, municipal budgets will grow by 25% on the average.”
The mayor reminded his deputies and city government workers that “all the normative documents” related to the city limits’ enlargement must be ready by June 30. The city will have two new administrative districts, Novomoskovsky and Troitsky.
The Moscow city limits will grow on July 1 with 160,000 hectares from Varshavskoye Highway to Kiyevskoye Highway in the southwest to the Big Circular Railroad. The city area will incorporate 21 municipalities, including two town districts, 19 towns and villages and three uninhabited lands. The municipalities, which will be attached to Moscow, will retain their borders, names and powers. Also their government structure will not change, and people will continue to elect municipal heads.
