Cazma Provides Christmas Bonus for Retirees, New Space for Fire Brigade

Lauren Simmonds

More often than not, money for works that need to be done and incentives that should morally be provided ”can’t be found” in city and town budgets, while miraculously needless things do seem to get done and with no funding problems from town and city budgets at all. The continental Croatian town of Cazma in Bjelovar-Bilogora County is setting an example many other places across the country could learn from.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 10th of December, 2019, the value of these works is estimated at around 480 thousand kuna and will be financed from Cazma’s own city budget.

Over the past month, 211 applications from pensioners who are unfortunately of a poorer financial status have arrived at Cazma’s local administration. These people in particular get pensions that don’t exceed the amount of 1,500 kuna per month. For all of them, Cazma’s budget has secured the money to pay out Christmas bonuses for them this year.

In total, this figure amounts to almost 32,000 kuna in total. Payments will be made every day, and they started last Thursday, December the 5th, and will continue right up until Christmas, on the ground floor of the Cazma town administration, every day from 09:00 onwards.

In addition to Christmas bonuses for retirees, the former technical inspection building is being redeveloped in Cazma for the needs of the Cazma Public Fire Department.

The interior of the building will be completely renovated, a kitchenette and on-call firefighter space will be built, an office for the commander and deputy, and new restrooms will also be created. In addition, the old joinery will be replaced with plastic joinery, a new heating system will be installed, as will a new electricity distribution system and brand new lighting.

As previously stated, the total value of these works is estimated to stand at around 480 thousand kuna and will be financed in full from Cazma’s budget.
