In the Great Stone want to decide the fate of the city manager without taking into account the opinion of the governor of Primorye

The authorities of the seaside town of Bolshoy Kamen are striving to maintain control over the city in the new realities, writes the newspaper "Golden Horn". The key issue was the procedure for holding the competition for the position of city manager. Attempts to exclude the regional administration from the decision-making process have already led to litigation.

According to political scientist Viktor Burlakov, Bolshoi Kamen has always been a turbulent territory with complex political processes. On the one hand, there is a desire of the city leadership to prevent the regional authorities from interfering when hiring a city manager, and on the part of the region - a desire to comb all municipalities with the same brush. “I think that elementary pressure on local deputies will not help here, and in the end the region will have to moderate its appetite. In general, the example of Bolshoi Kamen may become indicative for other coastal cities and districts where competitions for the positions of heads are to be held,” noted Burlakov.

Previously, in a closed administrative-territorial entity, the “head of the city - head of administration” scheme was mandatory. The commission for the selection of the city manager included not only representatives of the municipality and the governor, but also representatives of the Ministry of Industry and Trade, which was in charge of Bolshoi Kamen. However, after withdrawal of "closed" status and changes in the legislation on LSG federal representatives from this process were excluded. Moreover, thanks to the abolition of dual power at the municipal level and the widespread introduction of the competition in the appointment of the first person, even the preservation of the post of the head of the city by Dmitry Chernyavsky after the next Duma elections of the Big Stone now becomes impossible without the consent of the governor.
