Budva – Mayor of Budva M.A. Rajko Kuljaca noted yesterday that this year’s season was the best one in the past two decades and has announced that the local administration will eliminate all the problems until the next summer.
Pointing out that the Municipality has done everything in order for the metropolis of tourism to receive as good as possible a record number of tourists, Kuljaca has announced that the budget for the next year will surpass this year’s budget which was 43 millions of euros. That at the same time was the record amount in city cash register.
Kuljaca said that the newest data speak about the fact that in the metropolis of tourism there are 60% more guests than at the same time last year.
– The indicators are showing us that the post season will also be good. For the next season we will have the aqua park. We hope that until then we will build two to three football terrains on Jaz, and we especially hope that the next season and every following season in Budva will last for 9 months. All hotels until now have been full for seven months. We are getting back on old tracks of the glory of Budva tourism. I think that a lot of things have to be done in order for us to make what everyone desires, above all hotelkeepers and citizens. I think that hotelkeepers, local administration, and the people from the Government, who are most of all in charge of certain resources together have to give their maximum in order to reduce to minimum the faults which have been noticed this year – said Kuljaca.
Investment plan for 2007 he added is being carried out 100% and within the planned deadlines.
– Priority for the following year is termination of the factory for desalinization, continuation of the boulevard to Rafailovici in order to solve as much as we can the problem of traffic jams, and we have in plan to build a new entrance in Petrovac and another nine streets in the town. On Sveti Stefan the track Lungo mare will be build as well as the faculty and the building of primary school in Budva. A great number of investments has been started and the great part will be finished until the beginning of the next tourist season – said Kuljaca.
NEW STREET IN BECICI
Vice president of the Municipality Lazar Radjenovic has formally with cutting the cord opened the newly built street in Becici, close to the elite hotel The Queen of Montenegro.
– The street is about 270 meters long and the municipality has invested about 200 millions of euros in its construction. Except the corridor to Becici beach the street has a hundred parking places which will be used by tourists during the summer. Besde the great number of streets which we have terminated in the city nucleus in Budva, one of the priorities will be to make Becici one of the most significant developmental centers of entire Montenegrin coast, to make them equipped with the infrastructure. Already from the fall we announce the construction of a range of similar streets which will be made towards the hotel The Queen of Montenegro and will go out towards the village Boreta. Our priority is the investment in Becici basin because indeed it is one of the dominant bearers of development of our tourist economy – said Radjenovic.
