“To say that there is a shortage (of workers – ed.), I would not say that. Today we have enough forces to clean up the territory of the city. And we do not involve any paramilitary units, we do not turn to anyone for help, but city services cope with their own efforts, removing snow, “- said Biryukov, answering the question whether there is a shortage of personnel for cleaning the streets.
He noted that there is a lot of work in the center of the capital.
“A special subject of work is the Central District, here we have to take out snow from the yards, there is nowhere to throw it, the yards are small in area. The roofs are gable, we clean them, this is the same amount of snow as on the road network, we will have to take out It is very difficult work, therefore additional forces of our city engineering companies were involved in the Central District, and specialists are working on cleaning the central streets and lanes, “Biryukov said.
