It shows their desire to participate in high-quality improvement of house adjacent territories and their personal involvement. It is very important that repair works of yard driveways and sidewalks, installation of small architectural forms and lighting will be carried out not only in Ulyanovsk and Dimitrovgrad but also in some small cities like Barish, Inza, Sengiley, Novoulyanovsk and the village Silikatny”, - emphasized Oleg Midlenko, the Head of the Department for Development of Monotowns and Formation of Comfortable Environment of the Governor Administration.
