The labor collectives of our enterprises have repeatedly won different competitions, and reviews at a level Znamenka of branch of the Odessa railway. At the same time, they are rather demanding both to themselves, and to other people.

             Unfortunately, the economic crisis has affected our city. The number of unemployed has increased, the number of workplaces has been reduced, and therefore production has been curtailed. The basic problems of city are: flood by groundwater, contents of housing fund, construction and repair of paved roads, completion of  the construction of hospital, water supply, contents and replenishment of budget organizations. These and number of other problem questions constantly are in a field of sight of local council, and its executive committee.
