Alexey Teksler appointed the head of Magnitogorsk Sergey Berdnikov as his deputy
The head of the Chelyabinsk region, Alexei Teksler, appointed the head of Magnitogorsk, Sergey Berdnikov, as the deputy governor of the Chelyabinsk region on a voluntary basis. The meeting took place on the eve of August 7 in Chelyabinsk. The inclusion of the head of Magnitogorsk in the regional government should help to improve the efficiency of the municipal power.According to the Chelyabinsk Region Press and Information Department, Sergey Nikolaevich, as deputy governor, will assist in promoting programs for the development of the South Urals territories and overseeing the implementation of decisions taken at the VII Regional Congress of the Council of Local Heads.
The governor met with Sergey Berdnikov and got acquainted with his proposals for the development of municipal management practices. Alexei Teksler noted that in March they were instructed to work out a program for the socio-cultural development of Magnitogorsk as the “second capital” of the Chelyabinsk region. The industrial city should become a platform for the implementation of a common trend for the region, which was set by Alexey Texler: the development of municipalities in the interests of the population.
“The idea of perceiving Magnitogorsk as the“ second capital ”of the Southern Urals, indeed, seems to us very successful. Especially because in the package of initiatives and decisions that we worked together with the regional authorities during this time, there really is a lot of things that literally puts us on the same level as Chelyabinsk in terms of living standards, social services, quality of medical services, and educational development. According to my estimates, in the next 2-3 years Magnitogorsk will really be able to reach the “capital” level. I would not like to speak ahead of time now, but several major initiatives and interesting infrastructure solutions are still being worked out - this, of course, will cause a positive public outcry among city residents. Of course, this is a completely different management approach, which can only be welcomed and supported! I’m sure I’ll voice a common opinion - the residents of Magnitogorsk rightly associate with you hopes for changes, for a new logic for the development of our industrial city, ”Sergey Berdnikov told the governor.
