In the Yaroslavl region, after December 1, the increase in tariffs for housing and communal services will be frozen
YAROSLAVL, November 22 – RIA Novosti. According to the regional government, after indexation on December 1, the increase in tariffs for housing and communal services in the Yaroslavl region will be frozen, and in the future tariffs will not be reviewed for a year and a half.
“In connection with the transfer of tariff indexation for gas, electricity transmission, water and heat supply, municipal solid waste management from July 1, 2023 to December 1, 2022, tariff indexation for housing and communal services will not be carried out any more. More than a year and a half in the report” it was said.
Maria Sachkova, Director of the Regional Department of Tariff Regulation, announced that these changes were adopted at the federal level and included in the Decree of the Government of the Russian Federation dated November 14, 2022 No. 2053.
“For all regions, a single average index of change in the wages of citizens was established – 9%. Indexing is carried out as part of the annual inflation, which affects the cost of resources, repair of networks and facilities, the cost of fuel boiler rooms, water treatment reagents. The delay is due to rising inflation. It is necessary to ensure the uninterrupted operation and development of housing and communal services infrastructure in each region.
As said in the department, in different municipalities the increase in tariffs for individual utilities may be different. The next indexation will only occur on July 1, 2024.
It is reported that in order to necessarily comply with the size of the border index in the Yaroslavl region, the regional government has established reduced tariffs for the population for heat energy, water supply and sanitation. In addition, there are social support measures approved by the regional government in terms of compensation and subsidies for residents of the region for payment of electricity bills at the expense of the regional budget.
