ZAGREB, Aug 7, 2020 – Zagreb City Councillor from the ranks of the Croatian People’s Party, Tomislav Stojak, on Friday told a press conference that the law on Zagreb’s reconstruction after the March earthquake is taking too long and that citizens are still waiting for quality living conditions four and a half months later.

We have been waiting for months despite all the promises that it would be adopted before the summer, particularly since some political platforms advocated that during electioneering yet are now saying that it is necessary to hear all the arguments and that the law will be adopted in the autumn, underscored Stojak.

He underlined that citizens need to be ensured the same quality of life regardless of where they live, that those areas most affected by the earthquake have to be reconstructed, which would be a long process, but other suburbs need to be developed too.

Stojak assessed that as far as reconstruction is concerned, the state is doing a “relatively good job,” however the City of Zagreb is not doing as much considering that its financial situation is not that good.

The city will not have the 20 percent of the funding required for participating in the reconstruction as it does not have any money, Stojak added.

He expects Mayor Milan Bandic and the city authorities to present the city’s financial plan at the next meeting scheduled for September.
