The City of Pančevo Assembly informed the Commission for Protection of Competition on taking into account its opinion, and that has during the City Council’s session determined draft amendment to alter disputed decisions’ provisions regulating public utility burials and cemetery management service.

A decision on amendments to the Decision on burials and cemeteries, as per information sent to the Commission, shall be adopted by the City of Pančevo Assembly by end-July.

The Commission previously sent opinions to the Assemblies of Cities of Novi Sad and Pančevo on the necessity to amend, i.e. precise disputed provisions of decisions arranging this utility service, in order not to distort competition and enable monopoly to the public utility companies in those cities.

The Commission uses this occasion once more to emphasize the importance of the City of Pančevo Assembly’s conduct since the adoption of amendments to the disputed provisions of the Decision will have a positive impact on the competition. These amendments will enable performing of certain burial services to all interested parties, i.e. not only to the public utility company but also other companies, entrepreneurs, and other business entities.
