In general, the people surveyed by reporters are in favor of the new rules, as they believe they will help to ensure the city's orders, and it will be easier to deal with conflict situations with the population.
“The birds are fed and the windowsills are all dirty - it's next to us, but the pigeons also fly to us. Everywhere there are crumbs, grains, and dirt," – said Anastasia, who was speaking to Latvian Radio, and believes that many public policy issues should have been addressed in the city long ago, including clotheslines on balconies, which in her opinion are not an attractive sight.
Rēzekne society is also bothered by the feeding of wild birds on the town promenade, next to the supermarket.
Prohibition of begging in public places in Rēzekne, riding with roller skates, skateboarding in unauthorized places, splashing in fountains, drying laundry on a balcony if it faces the street, use of drones and other aircraft, feeding birds - these are just some of the rules the Rēzekne inhabitants will have to follow in future. Some restrictions also regard public behavior in territories of shared apartment buildings.
Rēzekne's Head of Administrative Inspectorate, Pavels Savickis, explained that there were a number of reasons for changing public policy rules, and one of them was a situation where there had been no legal basis for resolving conflicts that arise.
Monitoring of the implementation of the new “Public Order Rules” will be carried out by the Administrative Inspectorate of Rēzekne, but cases of infringement will be examined by the Administrative Commission of the City Council.
