Udmurtia head sacks Votkinsk mayor over citizens’ complaints
In addition, there is a number of questions to the former city's mayor that require the involvement of law enforcement bodies.
Udmurtia Head Aleksandr Brechalov has ordered the resignation of Votkinsk Mayor Vladimir Perevozchikov in connection with the loss of trust, the regional government’s website says.
According to Brechalov, the main claim to Perevozchikov is due to the increasing number of complaints of the local residents. According to them, the complaints with the mayor’s office have long been ignored, and acute problems are not solved.
In addition, there is a number of questions to the former city's mayor that require the involvement of law enforcement bodies, the regional government’s message notes.
It should be added that Perevozchikov took over as head of Votkinsk on January 26, 2012. Prior to that, he had worked as senior engineer of the Municipal Electrical Networks MUE and the director of the Votkinsk City Electric MUE. He had been elected as deputy of the Votkinsk City Duma four times.
