Bulgarian Ombudsman Calls for Fair Administration of Garbage Fee

Bulgarian Ombudsman Calls for Fair Administration of Garbage Fee

Bulgarian Ombudsman Konstantin Penchev has vowed to seek a suspension of the current garbage fee calculation method involving the property's taxable value.

"It mist be fairly distributed and any allegations that this would cost citizens more are incorrect. I agree to pay a bigger garbage fee as long as I know that it has been administered in a fair and equitable manner", Penchev said Thursday in an interview for state-owned TV channel BNT.

"I find this inexplicable. Everybody knows that garbage fee is not a tax, which is exactly why it has to be be apportioned in a fair manner. I will not back down", Penchev stated.

Garbage fee in Bulgaria's capital is currently determined on the basis of the taxable value of a piece of property. /Source: Sofia News Agency/
