Medvedja – Medvedja celebrated its day by the opening of the bypass. Zoran Stankovic, the President of the Coordination Body for the Municipalities of Presevo, Bujanovac and Medvedja, said during the opening of the bypass that a priority of the state in the coming period would be  making investments in infrastructure.

"We have planned for this year funds in the amount of around 50 million dinars for investments in infrastructure in the municipality of Medvedja, as well as grants for small and medium-sized enterprises in the amount of eight million dinars. I know that people here live hard, that the unemployment rate is high, that there are not enough infrastructure facilities, that there are few  business entities, but I expect that we will, all together, alleviate the problem. I hope that the state’s investments in the municipality of Medvedja will contribute to a better life of the residents of this municipality, "Mr. Stankovic said.   

The investment is worth 23 million dinars, the Coordination Body allocated 15 million dinars,  while the the rest of the money was earmarked from the municipal budget.

Nebojsa Arsic, the Mayor of Medvedja, said that the municipal building, which was 70 years old,  would also be reconstructed by the Coordination Body’s funds that year. 

“In addition, we expect the completion of works on the health center, which is an investment of 50 million dinars, made through the Office of Public Investments. We also expect the beginning of reconstruction works on primary schools in Medvedja and Sijarinska Spa, "Mayor Arsic said.

The Mayor of Medvedja stressed that the residents of Medvedja were especially proud of the culture-related projects that were supported by the competent Ministry, while significant resources would be earmarked for agriculture, too. Mayor Arsic placed a particular emphasis on the progress in tourism, which the municipality made that year.

On the occasion of the Municipality Day, a ceremonial session of the Municipal Assembly of Medvedja was held, while the most deserving individuals and companies were awarded recognitions. Most awards were given to primary and secondary school students, who had won major awards in national and regional competitions.
