YEREVAN, July 8. /ARKA/. The Yerevan Municipality has unveiled today an interactive website designed to enable city residents to submit their proposals and ideas online on how to improve the city.
Vice-Mayor Sergey Harutyunyan told journalists at a press conference today that the Municipality has earmarked 500 million drams (about $1 million) to finance the implementation of the most creative and widely supported initiatives.
He said after registering on the website, any resident of Yerevan will be able to submit a proposal or an idea on the improvement of the capital city, which will be put for the online voting. He added that each vote cast for the initiative or idea will have its own blockchain-based individual code to rule out any artificial attempt to interference the vote. Registration on the website is possible only by entering the ID data, he said.
According to the vice-mayor, up to 30 million drams (about $63 thousand) will be allocated for the implementation of each initiative or idea. Overall, some 20 such ideas will be carried out a year.
According to Harutyunyan, the ideas of citizens will be accepted until September 30. The online voting will begin on October 10 and last exactly one month. When the voting ends, experts will sum up the results and assess the possibility of implementing the voted initiatives. If the implementation of these ideas is possible, work on their implementation will begin next year. -0-
