KRASNODAR, August 21 (Itar-Tass) — Residents of Krymsk who have remained without shelter as a result of a devastating flood, will begin receiving keys to their new apartments on Thursday, Krasnodar Region Governor Alexander Tkachev said in his micro blog on Tuesday.
“On Thursday, we will hand in the keys to new apartments to the first 150 families hit by the flood. The apartments are fully finished, and have all necessary household appliances – stoves, fridges and washing machines. All as we promised,” the governor confirmed.
Initially these families were to receive keys on Tuesday. However, according to Tkachev, 200 meters of the road to a bus stop in the new neighborhood have not been asphalted. “Construction workers have asked two days for that. We have met them halfway,” the governor of the southern Russian region said.
The new neighborhood was initially built for the military. However, the governor asked to cede it to the people left without shelter, while a new neighborhood for the military is already being built.
All in all, 546 families will get comfortable apartments in that neighborhood.
Recently the governor visited another construction site in Krymsk. According to builders, they are not legging behind the schedule, and all houses will be commissioned within the period of three months.
