AHs are ready to take over road repair powers. Example of Kherson Oblast

The Kochubeyivska amalgamated hromada in the Kherson Oblast not only conducts major repairs of communal roads, which are on hromada’s balance, it is ready to even maintain th roads of oblast significance, in order to carry out repairs on their own.

The AH was formed in 2015 and consists of 14 villages of the Vysokopillya Rayon that borders with the Dnipropetrovsk Oblast. Over the past four years, the AH has increased its budget tenfold, opened its Administrative Service Centre, maintains schools and outpatient clinics, and introduced participatory budget. In addition, the Kochubeyivka AH repairs its roads on its own.
