Maribor in recent years at 85 million euros

From the point of view of state co-financing, Maribor is considered a distinctly deprived city. The fact that the municipality annually collects between 14 and 15 million euros in compensation for building land (NUSZ), which is the most important municipal tax and thus the largest source of municipalities for their own investments, shows how negatively the state's sub-financing has such a significant impact on Maribor's development capabilities. .
In Slovenia, we know an extremely complex system of financing municipalities, which for many years has contained many anomalies, due to which, for example, Maribor last year instead of 573 euros, which was the average, received only 518,6 euros per capita. The average cost of performing legal tasks per capita in Maribor was as much as 734,85 euros, so that he received only 71 percent of the money needed to cover the legal tasks imposed on him by the same country.
However, the problem already arises in the field of knowledge of the system of financing municipalities, which is why it is not realistic to expect that all councilors would fully understand the system after the first presentation.
At IOM, they agree that this system should be set up in such a way that such shortfalls do not occur again.
Based on ten indicators, the Ministry of Finance calculates the coefficient of development of municipalities, which are mostly the result of the volume of funding. As Maribor has been a co-financed city for a long time, it is ranked 136th in terms of development among 212 municipalities. Compared to Ljubljana, which ranks 13th, this is an extremely poor result.
It thus landed in fifth place among the most underfunded municipalities in the country; Of the 212 municipalities in the country, only Ankaran, Izola, Kostel and Velenje took it worse than Maribor. However, they have significantly fewer inhabitants than Maribor, so underfunding is still much less known in their budgets.
