Krakow councilors submitted amendments to the draft budget for 2020 for over PLN 400 million. President Jacek Majchrowski included only some of them. The self-amendment that has just been prepared includes road modernization program (PLN 20 million), neighborhood parking program (PLN 2 million), additional development of green areas (PLN 2.5 million) and additional funds for the construction of parking spaces (PLN 2.5 million) and dogs areas (PLN 700 thousand).
The councilors were quite skeptical about the presidential draft budget. They criticize Jacek Majchrowski for not taking councilors seriously. The effect of this is that the budget committee of the city council did not give a positive opinion for the presidential draft budget 2020 and the long-term financial forecast. On the other hand, all club corrections – of each of the four clubs in the council – received positive reviews.
In total, councilors submitted several hundred amendments for over PLN 423 million. The ideas of councilors submitted to the draft budget for next year. Voting on Wednesday, December 18th. Councilors do not exclude the scenario that all clubs’ amendments will be included.
President Jacek Majchrowski has already prepared a self-amendment to the budget, which includes some of the ideas of councilors. Among those dominated were renovation of selected streets, construction of pavements, or more money for greenery. At least partly this reflects the presidential self-amendment. The additional tasks included in it are worth about PLN 78 million.
Over PLN 32 million went to various tasks, such as:
- construction of Bulwary Białuchy – PLN 1 million,
- construction of bicycle sheds in districts XII and XIII – 300,000 zł,
- modernization of the pitch in the Wanda Zielony Jar park – 200,000 zł,
- establishment of a park at Bonarka – 100,000 zł,
- modernization of the XXX LO building – 550 thousand zł,
- modernization of KS Zwierzyniecki facilities – 500,000 zł,
- reconstruction of ul. architects – PLN 2.5 million,
- skatepark at ul. bathing – 700 thousand zł.
As part of the self-amendment, a road modernization program appears in the budget for PLN 20 million. 30 streets were included.
The President also included PLN 2 million for the program of housing estates parking (among others on the Kolorowe, Teatralny or Albertyński estates) and PLN 2 million for the pavement construction program and an additional PLN 2 million for the Nowa Huta Teraz program, which also involves the construction of pavements ( in the Nowa Huta districts).
There is also additional money for greenery – PLN 2.5 million for the development of green areas and PLN 2.5 million for the construction of pocket parks. 700 thousand PLN is to be allocated for the construction of large fenced areas for dogs, which was also requested by the councilors in the amendments.
