Akim of East Kazakhstan region held citizens’ reception and answered their questions

Today, Akim of East Kazakhstan region Danial Akhmetov received residents of the region as part of the nationwide event “Single day for citizens’ reception”. 

Most of the issues related to healthcare, social assistance and housing. In particular, a number of residents of Ust-Kamenogorsk and Semey requested the head of the region to advance the queue awaiting review for housing, and to provide them with rental housing.

- The issue of providing large and low-income families with housing is very urgent today. We will solve all of them, as a rule, by the decision of a special working group. Of course, these categories of citizens will be provided with housing on a priority basis. But everything should be done in accordance with the law, - Akim of the region Danial Akhmetov said.

In addition, the head of the region noted the importance of the question of a resident of Semey city Nazgul Chakenova about the quality of free equipment that is provided to citizens with hearing impairment at the expense of the state. According to the applicant, a ten-year-old child according to her diagnosis needs a special hearing aid for 16 modern channels. The head of Regional Employment and Social Programs Coordination Administration was entrusted with studying this issue.

- Children are our future. Therefore, their health is always a priority. In general, in 2019, citizens in need of care were provided with 200 hearing aids. Taking into account the diagnosis of this child, I give instructions to get the necessary device”, Danial Akhmetov said.

Among those who raised the problem is a resident of 23 houses of the regional center on Esenberlin St. According to him, the contractor VKTehnogrupp has not yet faced the walls of 9 houses. As a result of low-quality work, the company, which is to face the walls of the house, has been working ding for a year and a half. As a result, water enters the apartment on a rainy day, and in winter, when it is frosty, it is covered with frost. Akim of the region instructed the head of the contracting company and Construction Administration of the region to carry out current repairs and facing of 9 houses as soon as possible.
