The deadline within which cities and municipalities must make a decision on the amount of the lump sum is January 31, 2019. RELATED NEWS: Also, the question arises as to what over 100.000 renters do in their local communities with the organization of the same public forums and the opening of a dialogue with the City Council (representatives of the local population) who make the decision on the amount of the lump sum. This directly affects and affects the business of private renters, and if there is now no dialogue and the need to openly discuss the amount of the lump sum, then the problem is in the renters themselves. When the decision is made on the amount of the lump sum per bed, then it is too late to “Facebook smart” and call for the “destruction” of private accommodation. It is primarily the responsibility of private landlords to be actively involved in the discussion and open a dialogue with City representatives. Today, starting at 18:30 pm in the Rector’s Palace on Cres, the first public forum will be held on the amount of the lump sum per bed, ie accommodation unit. WITH THE ENTRY IN THE NEW YEAR, THE RESIDENCE TAX WAS INCREASED The law stipulates that the lump sum may not be less than HRK 150 or more than HRK 1.500. However, if the city or municipality does not make a decision on the amount of the flat tax within the given deadline, then according to the Act, the lump sum will be 750 kuna per bed. RENTERS HAVE THE MOST BENEFITS FROM TOURISM? Currently, the amount of the lump sum in the area of Cres is 300,00 kn, and as they point out from the Cres Landlords Association, the association’s leadership wants to hear the landlord’s opinion before opening an official dialogue with the City. More information about the public forum – Flat tax on the island of Cres, see HERE It is interesting that this is the first public forum on this topic, at least as far as I know. Also, this is the only right way to develop the local community through dialogue and constructive discussion, so support the organizers and come to the public discussion.

Dwight Howard returned to Los Angeles with the same reception the last time he stepped foot in Staples Center. The fans here greeted him with loud boos. Howard sparked outcry Monday when his Houston Rockets visited the Clippers in what marked his first game here since ignoring the Lakers’ billboards pleading him to stay. Howard heard the same disapproval six months earlier when he was ejected in Game 4 of the Lakers’ first-round loss to San Antonio, which marked the last time he wore purple and gold. Yep, plenty seemed unhappy for Howard passing up the chance to add to the Lakers’ 16 championships and litany of great centers named Mikan, Kareem, Wilt and Shaq.In the Clippers’ 137-116 victory Monday over Houston, Howard heard the shouts every time he scored one of his 15 points, went 5 of 10 from the free-throw line or committed one of his four fouls. “Fans are very passionate about their team, and unfortunately the Lakers have the most fans in the world,” Howard said. “It’s kind of a tough thing to let go and the way the season was last year, a lot of people don’t know what really happened on the court or in the locker room. They just know what was being fed to them, and they made their decision based off that.”Some of those listed reasons included Howard clashing with Kobe Bryant’s demanding leadership style and Howard irking Steve Nash for his reluctance to play pick-and-roll. Various former Lakers, including Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Shaquille O’Neal, suggested Howard left to leave the brights lights of scrutiny that playing for the Lakers entails.“It’s over with. There’s no need to talk about it,” Howard said. “Things happen. It wasn’t the best situation for anybody. But it is what it is. I made a decision to move on with my life and I’m in a much better place than I was last season mentally and physically. I think I made the best decision for Dwight.”Perhaps that’s why Nash offered a sly smile when asked about the possible negative reaction. But one former teammate came to Howard’s defense.“I wouldn’t waste my money [booing],” Lakers forward Pau Gasol said. “You have to respect Dwight for choosing his own path and making his own decision, whether you like it or not,” The Rockets sure liked Howard’s decision.“Dwight has been great. He’s fantastic,” Houston coach Kevin McHale said. “Dwight is a very, very easy guy to coach, is fun to be around and has an unbelievable presence on and off the court. The defense is better when Dwight is out there. Guys turn the corner, you look out there and guys are like I’m not driving in there. He’s been wonderful.”McHale spent plenty of time following Monday’s morning shootaround going over post-drills with Howard. That stands in stark contrast to Mike D’Antoni’s fast-paced system that featured Howard more in pick-and-rolls.There marked a time, though, that Houston had concerns with Howard.“Last July, when we got him, he was not healthy,” McHale said. “We signed him, and our biggest fear was his health.”Concerns appeared wide-ranging, including his surgically repaired back, the labrum in his right shoulder, the strength in his legs and glutes, his flexibility. You name it.But with Howard entering Monday’s game against the Clippers averaging 15 points and 17 rebounds in the Rockets’ 3-0 start, McHale described his health as “100 percent different.”“I’m moving a lot better,” Howard said. “I’m going up to get balls I couldn’t get last season with rebounds, blocked shots, all that stuff is a lot different. I’m doing a lot of work in the offseason to get my body back right. I feel a lot better.”And even if he left in hopes of bolstering a young and promising team featuring James Harden, Howard offered some purple and gold diplomacy.“I will always be gracious and happy to have the opportunity to play with the Lakers,” Howard said. “It was a learning experience and I think it helped me with this team. So, I’m glad that I had the chance to play in L.A. even though it ended soon; it was a learning lesson for myself and for everybody else. I think this year you’ll see a different Dwight.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error
