Municipalities and counties should be able to directly decide on big waste dumps and dangerous waste disposals in their communities according to amendment to the Construction Act to be proposed by MP Pavol Frešo (Slovak Democratic and Christian Union, SDKÚ), the SITA newswire wrote.
Parliament should deal with it in October. Frešo told a news conference on September 28 that local people, and not state authorities, should decide on building a waste dump. Proposed dumps would need the approval from municipal and regional parliaments. If the proposal is passed it would take effect on January 1, 2010 the SITA newswire wrote.
