The President of the Republic of Srpska Željka Cvijanović met today in Gacko with the Mayor Ognjen Milinković and the leadership of this municipality.
The President Cvijanović announced that the Office of the President of the Republic will co-finance the enlargement of the kindergarten in Gacko, as well as that it will support the construction of a playground with facilities for children.
After the meeting, the President Cvijanović said that she would support the construction of a playground with facilities for children, because it is inconceivable that there is no such playground in a place with such resources.
“We want an even larger number of children to have the opportunity to be placed in the kindergarten, which will be a relief for all parents who live here”, said the President Cvijanović.
The President of the Republic stated that the municipality has already started the project, which will be supported by the President of the Republic, but also others who are deemed necessary to get involved in the implementation of the project.
“We are in the mood for cooperation. It is important that there is a local team that wants strong ties with the Government of the Republic of Srpska and with the republican institutions, so that projects for citizens can be implemented. In the previous period, we did not have a special level of cooperation with this local community”, said the President Cvijanović and expressed confidence that some better time is coming for this local community, adding that she supports all plans of the Mayor to make Gacko a beautiful city.
The President of the Republic said that there is a lot of work to be carried out in Gacko and that it is very sad that a municipality that has such resources, such as the Gacko Thermal Power Plant and others, seems so neglected.
Emphasizing that the city must look better, that adequate contents for children, youth, pensioners must be designed and that “life must be enhanced”, the President of Srpska announced that she would work on large infrastructure projects in Gacko, such as sewerage and water supply.
“The municipality has entered the implementation of a large water supply project, but there are still a lot of ongoing and incomplete works left”, said the President Cvijanović.
The President of the Republic expressed satisfaction that there is a great resource in Gacko, such as the Gacko Thermal Power Plant, which is important for the employment of people, as well as for the entire energy sector and the economy of the Republic of Srpska.
The President Cvijanović pointed out that there are many things beyond the Thermal Power Plant that need to be revived and implemented in Gacko.
“Certain infrastructure projects are prerequisite and I am happy to have the opportunity today to see that, when it comes to the road communication and traffic infrastructure, there are certain plans and requirements to the company Roads of the Republic of Srpska, but also to the relevant ministry and government”, said the President Cvijanović.
After the meeting with Mayor Milinković and the leadership of the municipality of Gacko, the President of the Republic laid a wreath at the Monument to the Fallen Soldiers of the Army of the Republic of Srpska called “Crown to the Heroes of Gacko” and the Memorial to the Fallen Soldiers of the Patriotic War in Gacko.
