In Karelian Kondopoga, on December 6, one wooden apartment building was demolished by mistake instead of another. About it writes local edition “Kondopoga Territory”.
According to the newspaper, the city administration entered into an agreement with a contractor for the demolition of an emergency house at 17 Novokirpichnaya Street. The contract price was 600 thousand rubles. On the appointed day, early Monday morning, the contractor began to demolish the house. However, in the process of work it turned out that the excavator was not dismantling house No. 17, but house No. 28 along the same street.
The publication notes that the city authorities found out about what was happening only after residents registered in the demolished house began to call them.
“At the time of the demolition of the house, there were no people in the house, but some of the residents there had personal belongings,” the Kondopozhsky Krai editorial office told The Insider.
House No. 17 was also demolished the next day.
“Kondopoga Territory” writes that the house demolished by mistake was recognized as emergency at the end of December 2017, but its residents were not included in the resettlement program.
