The idea was approved at the first meeting of an interdepartmental committee appointed by mayor Ivan Portnih, following on a proposal by the public council on tourism in the municipality.

The committee, headed by the mayor, includes representatives of the Commission for Consumer Protection, Labour Inspectorate, police, Regional Health Inspectorate, Regional Directorate for Food Safety, National Revenue Agency – Varna, Regional Road Administration, Maritime Administration, and Regional Inspectorate of Environment and Water.

The task forces, including representatives of all these departments, will start work in the resorts and in the city itself from June 8.
