Today, the mayors of the above-mentioned localities signed the Intercommunity Association Agreement regarding the creation and modernization of the Intercommunity Waste Management Service, within the Mă Implic – Project of civic involvement in local government. The Community Initiative Team is now preparing the document of the Solid Waste Management Service Improvement Plan, which will be subject to public consultation with the citizens of the four associated localities.
We remind you that the municipalities of Risipeni, Izvoare, Horeşti, and Taxobeni, together with the citizens, make joint efforts to improve the communal solid waste management service in both localities, with the support of the “Mă Implic” project. According to the signed agreement, the municipalities receive funding (maximum 65,000 CHF), consulting services and capacity building services. The “Mă Implic” project helps the municipality and the service provider not only to improve the infrastructure, but also to develop long-term approaches to keep this infrastructure in good shape and to have sustainable models for financing the provision of services. In our work, we ensure that local citizens, LPA employees, NGOs, businesses are actively involved in modernizing community services in the community and especially that the less advantaged have equal access to these services.
The project is funded by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) and implemented by SKAT Consulting.
