Following the invitation of representatives of local self - governments and citizens, Kotor - Tivat dog shelter workers take out abandoned and lost dogs daily, especially in the city center, Radovici, Ostrvo cvijeca, Krasici, Gradiosnica, Donja Lastva and Seljanovo.

In the Tivat municipality alone, 177 dogs were collected last year, said the newly elected Dog Shelter’s Director, Milan Popovic, stating that, to their knowledge, vans from neighboring cities and the north are coming and leaving dogs in the territory of the two municipalities.

He stressed that the biggest problem facing the workers and animals is overcapacity: "At this moment we have approximately 220 dogs, which is 70 more than the number predicted by the current shelter’s capacity.

The capacity is 150 dogs, and we have about 220 of them. Vans from neighboring coastal towns and one from the north come to leave about twenty dogs each, and we are obliged to collect all these dogs from the territory of the municipalities of Tivat and Kotor upon the request of citizens and institutions, and then they create a problem for us."

Solution to this problem is expanding the capacity and upgrading the dog shelter for which there is a design, but in addition to the budget available, additional funds are needed, Popovic points out: “The Utility company has addressed our investors, municipalities Tivat and Kotor for additional funds to this budget and we hope that by the end of the year when the draft budget will be in preparation and ready for public debate, that the funds planned according to this design will be allocated."

The Dog shelter’s capacity expansion project requires over €100,000 in funding, which will mean that the funding and all other costs that will follow that expansion will be much higher, Popovic concluded, telling anyone who would like a dog to visit the shelter because the primary goal of this institution is to care for and provide home for each abandoned animal, especially puppies.

The use of winter equipment for all motor vehicles will be mandatory from November 15 this year until April 1 next year. That means drivers have time until Friday to replace summer tires with winter ones.

Although not the case before, the proposal for a Road Traffic Safety Act, which is in the parliamentary procedure and is pending its adoption, stipulates that all four tires must be of the winter type, which means that those operating vehicles should be guided by the new legislation.

The first nine months of this year saw the Port of Kotor post a profit of 1.05 million euros, 50.5% higher than the same period last year, reported the Chair of the Board Branko Ivanović to Pobjeda, adding that this was a record increase in profits.

"The company's revenue for the first nine months amounted to 2.85 million euros, 32.8% up on the same period last year," stated Ivanović.

Operating expenses for the Port of Kotor in the first three quarters amounted to EUR 1.79 million, which is a 27% increase due to the concession contract for the use of the port.

The Port of Kotor is the concessionary for the commercial port, and the agreement on the primary concession with the Government was signed on 25th March, on the basis of a decision of Government of 27th December last year.

The concession is for a period of 12 years, and a business plan for that period envisages investment in infrastructure and superstructure of 5 million euros. After the signing of a concession contract with the Kotor company, the Ministry of Transport in March announced that in implementing the investment plan, conditions would be created to be able to welcome the newest cruise ships, without any restriction on length or draft, and the capacity of the marina would be increased. In addition, the quality of port services will also be improved. Earlier, it was announced that the concession agreement would benefit the state, municipality, citizens, and above all, those who work in the port itself. It was also stated that it was of the utmost importance to remove any safety risks and enable improvements, investment, development, safe passage for vessels, and comfort for travellers and tourists.

At the end of August, the Port of Kotor applied to the Ministry of Sustainable Development for the issuance of urban and technical conditions to build an independent buffer for vessels and two independent berths for buoy mooring in the operational space of the Port, in order to improve the technical and technological elements necessary for welcoming passenger vessels. The Port of Kotor Company made a net profit last year of some EUR 801,200 and is one of six joint-stock companies that paid dividends to shareholders last year.

In June, a meeting of shareholders in the Kotor company took the decision to distribute half of its profits to the owners in the form of a dividend. The Municipality of Kotor holds 56.97% of the Port’s shares, PIO Fund 17.5%, and the Employment Bureau 5.87% of the company's capital.
