‘I have talked with the representatives of the Ministry of Administration and Interior, whom I have empowered.
The meeting will be held on Monday, 14:30, local, in order to give them time to get prepared and to come to this first talk which we will have at the government headquarters, in the presence of the administration, of the Ministry of Finance, regarding the cost standards which we have to make.
They are mandatory, the prime minister said, on Aug 6, at the public radio.
He mentioned that these cost standards have to take into account the number of the population, how long the locality is, they have to be correlated with the Finance Ministry.
‘Our very clear objective is to have a body of well-paid civil servants, who have to be well trained and show responsibility for the citizen.
These are the elements which we are paying attention to, for the staff to be good in point of number, to be well trained, with high salaries, considering that the staff number will be reduced, and at the same time, they have to answer the needs of the citizens, as nothing is more unpleasant than to go to the counter and be treated with arrogance, and be told ‘I have no time’,’ said Emil Boc.
The meeting between prime minister Emil Boc, minister of Finance Gheorghe Pogea and the representatives of the four association structures of the local public administration, of villages, towns, cities and counties, will take place on Monday said the president of the National Union of the County Councils of Romania, Liviu Dragnea.
According to the source, such a meeting was proposed at another meeting, that held by the ruling coalition early last week between the Social-Democratic Party (PSD) and the Democratic-Liberal Party (PD-L), when announced was the intention of the Government to limit the budget expenses in the local public administration.
The main topic of debate aim at the efficiency of the use of public money in the local administration, as well as at the shaping of the principles which have to be set at the basis of the quality and cost standards in this important sector of activity.
