The old fleet of Čair local authority will be replaced by five environmentally friendly vehicles through public procurement. The council of Skopje’s old town, the smallest municipality in Macedonia, decided to go ahead with the purchase after results of an analysis showed the system was economically viable, portal Meta.mk reported.

“With this decision we want to show an example of how we can act towards long-term improvement of environmental protection, especially the quality of air, which we all breathe. I am aware that only one activity cannot bring wanted results, but small steps also lead to a solution,” said Izet Mexhiti, the municipality chief, adding the first charger will be installed so that citizens can also use it. He announced that the City of Skopje, in collaboration with the Association of the Units of Local Self-government of the Republic of Macedonia (ZELS), will start an initiative to expand the efforts, especially in the segment of charger units in public spaces.
