Kiyzassky Open-Pit Mine Clears Snow from Myski

The company dispatched a front loader to remove snow in residential areas, and the mine’s employees helped a disabled person clear her home of snow

At the request of the administration of the Myskovsky Urban District, the Kiyzassky Open-Pit Mine provided a front loader for snow removal in residential areas. According to weather forecasters, precipitation 200% higher than the monthly norm was recorded over the past few days, with the height of the snow cover exceeding the average climatic norm. According to Alexander Stolyar, the head of Myski’s Department of Housing and Community Services, all available equipment was deployed to clear the main throughfares, but there were problems in residential neighborhoods.

“Our main task is to clear the town’s streets of snow as quickly as possible. While the equipment and people work round the clock, there aren’t always enough resources, so we turned to Kiyzassky Open-Pit Mine for help. The company dispatched a loader that removed snow on Rossiyskaya and Spartak Streets. Now cars can pass there without any problems, and people can get to the bus stop. Locals called the department to thank them for the prompt cleaning.” 

The mine’s employees also helped clear snow from the private home of a disabled person. Elena Popkova, who suffers from a serious illness, lives alone in the house, and the last snowfall was a real disaster for her. The company’s employees coped with the work in just two hours. “This morning I woke up, came out onto my porch, and burst into tears. There was so much snow that it reached my waist. Because of my weak state, I get tired very quickly, so I can’t shovel snow for a long time. Today the gang from the Kiyzassky Mine called and said they’d come to the rescue. This is probably the happiest moment I’ve had in a long time. The guys finished the job very quickly. Thank you very much! If not for the help of the mine, the roof of my house could have collapsed: the snow is heavy, and there is a lot of it! It’s very nice that such responsive and caring people work at the enterprises of our city!” said Elena Popkova.

The tradition of helping disabled residents and retirees with snow removal will continue. The company has already compiled lists of residents whom employees will attend to in the near future.

Kiyzassky Open-Pit Mine also provides coal to the Myskovsky Urban District at rates lower than those set by the Kuzbass Regional Electricity Commission. The company is the only supplier of coal at a reduced price for the needs of the population of Myski.
