Bravo, Mayor, you really know....

Some conclusions of the reunion, don't want to go very deep into them:















+ First, no more than 60-70 persons were there. The assistants complained about the lack of communication from the municipality when informing about the meeting. Some people knew from others, not directly. Last year in Melina Mercury number was double.

+ One of the main problems commented was the traffic problems, in all the city.

+ Most of the problems has to do with the police. There is never a representation of them in these meetings.

+ The way of this reunions are carried along is quite unproductive, meaning that the system of just stand on the stage and listen to the complains of the neighbors really doesn't work. From last year no big changes has been seen in the city.

+ In general, there is a lack of communication of the municipality towards the citizens: there is no knowledge of roads closed, works, etc.

- From our group, we keep on focusing on two main points: one is the need of regular meeting between representatives of the municipality and the neighbors; and the second is the lack of a general plan or idea about the city instead of small and very local interventions.

- To emphasize, the traffic subject: we've been fighting for a solution to Thiseos street during the last 2 years. No one has been proposed, not even for a future. But the moment we realized about how the people on power think, is when the Mayor answer like this about our complaining: "... but if you knew how much traffic your road has, why did you go to live there...?" - This is not the response you expect to here from the mayor of a European historic city/monument -
