Last week, the Caxias do Sul City Hall received an expression of private interest for the implementation of the Municipal Lottery Service. The request was made through the National Association of Games and Lotteries for Caxias do Sul.
The secretary of Strategic Partnerships, Maurício Batista da Silva, explained that based on this manifestation, the municipality must analyze it within the legislation. “We will now carry out the due analysis and verification regarding the data presented and the possibility of continuing with the material and what the next steps would be”, he commented.
The lottery is considered by the municipality as a possibility of a new source of revenue to help increase the resources needed for social security, both social security and assistance, and health.
“In view of the significant and frequent increase in the demand for resources for these areas, the lottery can become a mechanism in which the municipality can meet these demands and, from there, not unlink or transfer resources from other portfolios, in order to maintain the operation of the municipality and meet the demands of all sectors”, added the secretary.
Maurício pointed out that he will continue to evaluate the expression of interest and also evaluate the possibility of working on lottery services at the regional level.
“This way we will join efforts with the other municipalities and, certainly, when we bring a solution, not only for Caxias do Sul, but for everyone, the gain will be greater and obviously the most successful project”, he concluded.
