A general meeting will also be held with Minister Ivan Demerdzhiev, with the Mayor of Karlovo, Emil Kabaivanov, and with the regional governor of Plovdiv, Angel Stoev, on recovery after the flood damage. This was said by the Minister of Regional Development and Public Works Arch. Ivan Shishkov in “This is Bulgaria” on Radio “Focus”.

He stated that he had spoken with Minister Demerdzhiev and that they would hold a joint meeting with him and the mayor of Karlovo and create an organization so that funds for recovery could be provided.

“As far as I know, there are five collapsed bridges. Part of the roads are destroyed, so in all cases funds will be provided and where necessary the Road Infrastructure Agency will help, i.e. as an available resource, as people, including construction equipment,” explained the minister.

According to him, an analysis is currently being made of the state of the water supply network, where necessary, repairs are being made. “In every sphere, not only in the one in which we are responsible, we have been involved extremely actively”, explained architect Shishkov.

“I had a meeting with the mayor of Karlovo tomorrow at 4:30 p.m., but I specified with Minister Demerdzhiev to meet immediately after the Council of Ministers,” he said, clarifying that there will be a Council of Ministers tomorrow, at which this will be the main topic.

“If not – after the Council of Ministers, the two of us will agree to hold a meeting with the mayor of Karlovo and the regional mayor of Plovdiv in order to take more urgent and faster measures for an even leaner organization, because I can say that and at the moment the organization is at a pretty good level. But at the moment what we have specified is to restore the damage immediately such as clearing the streets, helping people in the yards,” the minister added.

“What we need to do very quickly after that is to start rebuilding the infrastructure,” added Ivan Shishkov.
