Illegal consructions in the Vilnius’ rolling stock will be decommissioned right after resettling their Romany occupants, as assured on Monday by the vice mayor of Vilnius, Gintautas Paluckas.

According to the program of integrating Romany people, social workers will be employed to work in the rolling stock. The program aims at granting financial aid on renting apartments, learning trade and finding employment. Local government is also offering more financial aid that is to be spent on day-to-day necessities, like paying for the municipal services.

As underlined by Paluckas, 9 families are currently on the waitlist for resettling. Municipality aims at resettling 40 families, who are raising over 90 children and are currently occupying the rolling stock.

The program is also offering help for those who are addicted to different drugs and live in the stock. 100.000 euros have been deployed to support this point of focus.
