The power, in the name of mayor Oleg Kuvshinnikova, insisted on increase of rates, business of increase did not want. Both those and at others in favour of the position had arguments.

Deficiency of the Cherepovets budget this year makes 358 million roubles. Area « to help money » cannot, there the deficiency, therefore for its covering the city should take the credit. Same « avaricious » the situation will be and next year, officials speak.
