Bar – The Mayor of Bar, Zarko Pavicevic, at the same time the president of the local Tourist organization, send the word yesterday to the citizens that the following summer under Rumija will be awaited readier than ever before.
– I will not be satisfied if there are less than 1, 3 millions of overnight stays. In the projects of water supply and solution of the problem of waste waters, until the 1st of June we will invest 2, 9 millions of euros, in order to get an extra 30 to 50 secondary liters of water. Until the 15th of May we shall invest at least 2, 1 millions of euros in road infrastructure, parking lots, pavements, bus and taxi stands – said Pavicevic. The Mayor stated that for the next season the level of the cultural happenings and tourist propaganda of Bar have to be higher. For the better hygiene maintenance and taking away of the garbage, Communal enterprise will be better equipped both with staff and material, and for their trucks we will provide a credit of 500.000 euros as Bar is know by nautical tourism, says Pavicevic, with the changes and additions of DUP “Topolica 1”, the marina will satisfy the world standards and open new working spaces.
The Municipality will impose but also help the Association of the businessman in Bar to transform their facilities. We are asking the Railway company to arrange the train station in Bar, and from Bar sailing company we are asking that they organize much better the passengers’ terminal. Also bus stations in Sutomore and Canj are important, as well as the enhancement of the town traffic during the season. With the “Sea welfare” we are making arrangements about different maintenance of the beaches – said Paicevic. The vice president of the Municipality Dragan Simovic, pointed out that Bar is the third town in Montenegro by the number of guests and over night stays. The reserves for the increase of those numbers, he sees in private accommodation, because the Municipality has, he says, given only 387 approvals for bed renting, and we know that there is a much bigger number of them. He promised benefits for the receiving of that approval in order for at least 50% of the owners of the bed renters to enter the legal regulation.
– We will widen the season with the sport tourism and manifestations, such as recent Maslinijada. We are preparing a special fund for the festivals in the season 2007 for which the action plan will be over in 15 days – announced Simovic emphasizing that the residence tax will not be increased.
SUTOMORE WILL BE CLEANER
– Sutomore in tourism is the most important thing for Bar. We have to make it decent. There will be some major changes, more hygiene and more order. We are planning the construction of about 5 kilometers of the roads, as well as the reconstruction of the entire Coast of Ivo Novakovic. Our desire is to have the support from the citizens, and that through the DUP the illegal construction becomes legalized, and everything that we collect we will invest back in Sutomore – said Pavicevic.
