The next increase in tariffs for housing services was announced in the Committee on Tariffs and Prices of the Jewish Autonomous Region. Traditionally, the indexation of payments will take place on July 1: thermal energy will rise in price by 1,6% on average, water supply by 2,73%, water disposal by 2,64%, gas supply by 7%.

The reasons for the increase in some tariffs above inflation have been paradoxical. The committee explained this as “a decrease in the supply of resources (thermal energy, water, gas) due to the installation of metering devices”. According to the agency, the installation of metering devices for the year on average increased by 10% compared to 2018.

Officials note that it is not possible to limit the increase in tariffs for housing and communal services in terms of heat and gas due to rising prices for raw materials, and the cost of hydrocarbon is about 30% of the cost of gas supply. The situation is similar with the provision of coal - for some organizations of the region, the price increase amounted to 24%.

However, services for the disposal of municipal solid waste are the most imitative for the population - by 12,5%. The committee has not yet named the reasons for this. Most likely, this is due to the All-Russian garbage reform.
