In the area of the Technical Chamber of Kozani, welcomed the President of the Department Stergios Kianas, the Deputy Mayor of Urban Planning of Kozani, Ms. Amanatidou Matina and the Head of the Urban Planning Department – Εφαρμογών και Υπηρεσίας Δόμησης Κοζάνης, Mrs. Paphyli Eleni. The subject of the discussion was the operation of Y.DOM. Kozani and taking initiatives, so that the work of both fellow mechanical freelancers can be done, as well as the fellow mechanical employees of Y.DOM., more productive and efficient.
The President of TEE / TDM pointed out to the Directorate that recently TEE has received complaints from engineers - freelancers regarding the operation of Y.DOM. Kozani. The problems are mainly related to the delay in the issuance of building permits and the recovery of files, but also the general difficulty in the service faced by engineers - freelancers.
The service, for its part, responded that due to lack of staff, which has recently intensified due to the retirement of some employees, find it difficult to meet the increased demands, both citizens and engineers and strengthening its staff becomes more urgent than ever. The problems increased after the lifting of the suspension of the technical offices and the return to everyday life, which resulted in a sudden increase in workload, but also due to the deadline of Law 4495/2017 for the regulation of arbitrary and other Programs that are in progress or are expected to be announced ("I save", etc.), which forced a large portion of citizens to request the assistance of the service for the recovery of building permit files.
In order to cope with the increased demands, decided not to serve the public at all, on Mondays and Thursdays, so that they can produce office work and meet the demands of all other days, which within a month exceeded them 300, only for the file.
They understand, however, that this move caused the discomfort of the self-employed.
After a dialogue that followed and an exchange of views, always guided by the productive and efficient work of all, the following were agreed:
- The service will henceforth serve on Mondays and Thursdays, but only for cases handled in the protocol. Licensing checks and other cases, requiring the contribution of engineering staff, will continue to take place on Tuesdays, Wednesday and Friday.
- The public and engineers will be served after 10:00 (either in the Monday and Thursday protocol, or in all other offices on other days).
- For telephone service, engineers are kindly requested to contact the service, every day, after 13:00, to give priority to telephone matters.
Each side must show understanding of the other's work needs. The employees of the Town Planning beyond the service for life, They also need time to work on cases that are not related to the issuance of building permits and freelancers are requesting an acceleration of the procedures., to close their customers' cases on time.
Unloading of the Service will of course be achieved to a great extent, after the digitization of the file of Y.DOM. after the Deputy Mayor Mrs. Amanatidou, stated that it is optimistic that the proposal of the Municipality of Kozani to finance this important project, will have a positive response from the Region.
The TEE / TDM, Listening to the needs of citizens and engineers, it has submitted a corresponding funding proposal for the digitization of the remaining Y.DOM. of Western Macedonia and considers it imperative that both proposals be funded.
The discussion ended with the assurance that the contact and cooperation of TEE / TDM with the Directorate of Urban Planning and the Municipality of Kozani will be continuous., to address issues that arise in a timely manner.
