This year, 17 schools, 4 kindergartens and 21 school canteens will be renivated
in Kazan. Pyotr Korolyov, Director of the Department for the Maintenance of
Social Institutions of the city, announced plans to overhaul educational
organizations at the Business Monday meeting today.
Ilsur Metshin, the Mayor of Kazan, noted that traditionally the city carries
out large amounts of repairs of educational institutions. “This year we plan to
renovate seventeen schools and four kindergartens, - he stressed. – In 2013, we
were proud of the fact that we built 14 interchanges, 40 pedestrian crossings,
ground and underground, as well as social facilities at the same time. Twenty schools
that we were overhauling at that time seemed incredible,”- the Mayor said.
In 2022, 71 social facilities were renovated in the capital of the republic
of Tatarstan, 51 of them are educational institutions, the head of the city noted.
"With experience comes quality and the reliable contractors. Any social
institution is easier to build than to renovate – somewhere the educational
process does not stop, somewhere it is necessary to work in a short time. The
quality of repair work is increasing along with experience,”- the Mayor said.
“The development of the infrastructure of social institutions, as well
as their maintenance in a regulatory state is one of our priorities,”- the
Mayor continued. “In 2012, the Head of Tatarstan Rustam Minnikhanov initiated
the program of overhaul of schools that are over 30 years old. Thanks to this
program, 106 schools were renovated - the roof, utilities, pipes, windows.
There was a program for the development of education, a federal program for the
overhaul of schools. We hope that with these two programs we will finally
overcome the problems that have been accumulating in our social institutions
for decades,”- the Mayor said.
In 2023, 16 schools are planned to be overhauled under the Development
of Education federal program, 135 million rubles are allocated for each of
them. The roof, window blocks and entrances, utilities, assembly and sports
halls, classrooms will be overhauled. It is planned to replace equipment,
furniture and inventory. Additionally, on behalf of the Head of Tatarstan, this
year the main building of the school No. 93 of the Sovetsky district, built in
1964, will be overhauled.
According to Pyotr Korolyov, a list of schools has already been formed
to carry out repair work under the federal program for 2024-2025.
Last year, 31 school canteens were also repaired in the capital of the republic
of Tatarstan, 297 million rubles were allocated for this. 144 canteens are
already operating in the format of a school restaurant – this is 78% of their
total number. “These are completely new conditions for children's nutrition:
modern kitchen equipment, cozy canteens, comfortable furniture, an increased
number of seats,”- P. Korolyov noted. According to him, this year repairs are
planned at 21 canteens in the amount of 220 million rubles.
In conclusion, P. Korolyov noted that in 2022, with the support of the
city budget, current maintenance was carried out at 213 educational
institutions for a total of 254 million rubles. The roof was repaired at 22 facilities,
window blocks were replaced at 38 schools, and scheduled repairs were carried
out at 113 facilities.
