Complaints about abandoned building materials

Elona Jurkevičienė, Head of the Project Division of Klaipėda City Municipality, said she did not know about the clutter on the hill near John.
“I find it hard to comment on anything until we see anything. The construction contractor seems to be neat and could not leave the mess there. Be sure to find out about this situation with the project manager, ”said E. Jurkevičienė.
Aldas Kliukas, the director of the company Pamario restauratorius, who performs reconstruction works on the Hill of John, explained that it is not building waste, but building materials used, because the works are not over yet.
“We carry land there, concrete, not rubbish. There, the roots of the trees are dug out, the branches are stacked, we take it all out, there are just the works. The thing is that the area is not fenced because it is very large, and people see everything going on there. If in fact the wind carries our building materials to other yards, we will put everything in order, ”said Kliukas.
