Candle vending machines that annoyed Brno residents will disappear from the cemeteries Company News Brněnská Drbna
Many people who come to Brno cemeteries with the intention of remembering their deceased loved ones often rely on them to buy candles on the premises. Until now, such an opportunity to obtain automatic vending machines in which it was possible, at least according to the operator, to purchase candles. But machines do not work very often.
Unreliable vending machines for candles stand in cemeteries in the Brno city districts of Židenice, Tuřany, Královo Pole, Líšeň and Slatina. The city of Brno has long been solving problems reported by dissatisfied people. Not only do vending machines do not dispense goods, but they also do not return the money invested.
In addition, the fault information on the machines could not be invoked, and people with complaints had to contact the burial ground administrator or the municipal environmental department. In the past, the tenant’s department, which is the company ADIE sro, repeatedly drew attention to the failure rate of vending machines and to complaints from citizens. But there was no correction.
Brno therefore resigned with a three-month notice period. “We do not want this inconsistent approach to have to damage the city’s name. Upon termination of the contract, a three-month notice period will begin, during which the tenant is obliged to remove the vending machines from public cemeteries. ” described the deputy mayor Petr Hladík (KDU-ČSL).
