October the 28th, 2020 – The ongoing coronavirus crisis might be wreaking havoc with the economy and seeing people lose their jobs, but Milan Bandic is committed to employing more and more people within Zagreb’s city administration, regardless of the less than favourable economic situation plaguing the country.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, Zagreb mayor Milan Bandic plans to employ a total of 150 people in the city’s administrative bodies by the end of this year.

Although 97 employees were planned to be hired by the city administration earlier this year, on January the 30th, that number was adjusted on June the 18th, following the lockdown, to include a further 15 new employees, and now, at the end of the year, the mayor has found that another 38 people need to be employed within the Croatian capital’s administration.

When compared to the original plan from back in early 2020, this is an increase of more than 50 percent. Jutarnji list wanted to find out why there was such a big gap between the original plan, whether someone is responsible for this sort of poor planning, and how much the work has increased. They asked the City of Zagreb for an answer.

The figure on the second correction of the employment plan in the city bodies was published on Monday in the Official Gazette of the City of Zagreb. It follows that on October the 16th, Mayor Milan Bandic established that it was necessary for the City Office for Strategic Planning and Development of the city to employ four more people.

The city’s Office of Economy, Energy and Environmental Protection, which initially planned to employ four people back at the beginning of the year, has increased that number by four more so it should employ a total of eight people by the end of the year.
