The first on the agenda have taken out a question on carrying out of public hearings on this question. Such hearings – the first and necessary step on a way of acceptance of changes to the city Charter.

- the Project of the decision to us have given out only yesterday. I would suggest to think still before to start it for discussion and the subsequent statement.

- Speech does not go that we now here take and we will approve of the amendment. We suggest to appoint date of public hearings. It is necessary to give the chance for townspeople to be voiced. If the people are for the selected mayor, we will leave all as is, - the leader of fraction « has minded to it; an United Russia » in gordume Edward Hasanshin .

As a result the offer to appoint public hearings the most part of deputies has countenanced. 16 persons have voted for, 7 – against, 3 – has refrained.

Public hearings have appointed to June, 15th. After their carrying out the thought should vote for amendments. They will enter force after the positive conclusion of Office of Public Prosecutor and the statement of the updated Charter in judicial authorities. Amendments to the charter to deputies should be confirmed in the shortest terms. Already on July, 22nd, if the management system in a city does not change, re-elections of the mayor should be appointed.
