In the second half of 2021, a planned indexation of utility rates will be carried out in Sochi. The indices of changes in the payment of city residents for services will be approved by the Government of the Russian Federation.
“Now the prices for cold, hot water supply and sewerage operating on the territory of the resort do not exceed the average tariffs in the region, and even lag behind a little. Also, the city is carrying out a set of measures for social support of citizens, including benefits and subsidies for the payment of the amount indicated in the receipts, “said Victoria Lukienko, head of the price and tariffs department of the Sochi administration.
The press service of the city administration also notes that labor veterans, home front workers, victims of repression and other categories of local residents with a residence permit can count on compensation for utility bills. Subsidies are also available for families whose payments exceed 22% of total income.
