the above chart we can conclude that the
firms in the lumber industry will change
the economic activity in the next years
of planned investment in new investment
which will have the result an additional
268 workers employed of which 80% will be
used by «Drvokomerc which has grown into
the leading firm in the lumber industry
not just in Drinić, but also in a wider
area of BiH.
The economic structure
of the municipality of Petrovac-Drinić can
be evaluated as a positive as a newly founded
municipality the economic development has
started with development of the production
capacity in lumber processing which has
a raw material base in the forest as so
the basic/essential resources of the municipality.
Currently the only favorable public activity in the municipality is carried out by the Public Utility Uzor which manages the local water grid/ plumbing system and the disposal of solid waste mainly sawmill refuse.
It is logical to expect that in the years following that the remaining favorable activity will start intensive development even more so trade, hospitality then also favorable skills which will be supportive to the lumber industry.
I.8.NON ECONOMIC ACTIVITY
All non economic activity
which are unfolding in the municipality
have become and are developing along with
the formation of the municipalities directly
as leaders and coordinators of all the economic
and non economic activities in the municipality.
Along with the administration which has
been organized in a unified entity municipal
administration, are important segments of
life as a whole in the municipality are:
the Drinić healthcare center, the Drinić
Elementary School, the police station, Hypo-Alpe-Adria
bank, PTT RS (Republic of Serbia Post Office),
Republic's Survey and Landowner's Rights
office, health insurance administration,
Republic of Serbia's telecom office, the
RS tax office, the RS weather station, the
Municipality's Red Cross organization and
the following non-government organizations:
the veterans organization, the youth organization
LET», the sports club, the hunters association
»SRNDAĆ» and the association or retired
Healthcare & Welfare, education, culture
and sports, and municipal administration
will be further analyzed.
I.8.1 Healthcare & Welfare
was established in the Post Dayton Agreement
period so in regards to that it falls in
a relatively young, small & distinct undeveloped
municipality, and therefore the healthcare
system is not well developed at all. It
started with an ordinary poorly equipped
clinic and with one midlevel medical worker.
Today that same clinic has grown to become
the JZU Healthcare Center which is like
the one registered July 2000 with several
highly skilled specialties-18 house and
Healthcare in the municipal territory is exhausted thru primary healthcare in reference to the healthcare center until secondary healthcare is used in Mrkonic Grad and finally in the Clinical Center in Banja Luka.
The healthcare Center operates in a small, cramped space. Healthcare activity unfolds in a building that 75.8 m2. The administrative portion is in the Municipal Administration building and is 16m2, the Ultrasound area is 18 m2, and the office space for doctor and nurse are on the first floor of the building where medical services are rendered is 76.5 m2. The health center also uses 2 garages for medical vehicles.
The entire space is hardly enough to render all the healthcare activities necessary by normal standards that regulate this field.
The entire space is hardly enough to render all the healthcare activities necessary by normal standards that regulate this field.
The technical equipment followed the development of the health center and it currently owns:
1 EKG machine, 1 Reflotron machine for the laboratory, 1 TWINKEL for the laboratory, 1 oxygen machine, 1 completely outfitted dental office, 1 CITROEN JUMPI vehicle used as ambulance, 1 computer with printer, 3 blood pressure cuffs, 2 dry heat sterilizers, 1 autoclave, 1 ultrasound machine
In the future it is necessary to obtain the following equipment:
1 x-ray machine, equipment for ob/gyn emergencies, and an all terrain vehicle for emergencies.
The financial foundation of the healthcare center is a public fund from health insurance which finances only the most elemental activities and even those are suffering. One part of the financial resources supplied is fro the founding municipality, but even those resources are minimal so that even the PARTIPACIJA supplies a portion.
The healthcare center employs one general practioner and five rotating doctors, three nurses, an administrator, a financial manager, an administrative assistant, two ambulance drivers, and one maid.
From the previous statements, it is obvious that the health center has made a solid move forward in the past 5 years, but in the years ahead it will be necessary to obtain, more space, equipment, and staff.
According the data, the office of healthcare insurance in Drinic has 2,267 users of health insurance.
There is a small number of poor within the municipality who are a burden of the healthcare center even though it isn't foreseen in the regulations, the healthcare center is not a welfare system.
The healthcare center as accepted the concept of family practitioners and it has started to train the personnel in that direction.
The municipality does not have any minors registered who need protection in regard to Welfare Law-this meaning children without parents, children who are physically or mentally developmentally challenged, children whose development is endangered by their domestic life, or neglected or abandoned children.
When we are speaking of people of legal age, again there are no registered welfare users. This meaning those who need financial assistance because they are incapable or unable to work, those who have no income of their own and have no relatives obligated to support them as determined by family law, or those who live below the poverty level.
Welfare in accordance with Ammendment 19 of the Welfare system is distributed from the Municipality's budget twice a year in the form of monetary assistance to the household in the amount of 205 KM, and in extraneous circumstances that assistance can be greater if it is decided by the authorized person of the welfare organization which enforces this rule. In 2005, three such assistance checks were distributed.
In the municipal territory, doesn't exist any of social establishments circumstances of not one of these types, but in the circumstances of eventual need, the service of the establishment in the Republic of Serbia will be used.
Education in the Petrovac
- Drinić municipality is organized through
the Elementary Education Institute which
was formed in the 2000-2001 school year
at which time 72 students were enrolled.
The job of educating the elementary school
students was accompanied by difficulty due
to inadequate and insufficient space for
the students as well as a lack of students
and teachers (staff). Meanwhile with thanks
to the municipality's chief's understanding
and support and the Forestry Managements
Administration, every year was able to achieve
more staff, as well as student and staff
transportation from Bos. Petrovac, even
transportation for staff from Drvar.
During the 2005-2006 school year, the elementary school had 71 students, 2 teachers, 5 instructors, principal, and 2 housekeepers.
After finishing elementary school, the majority of students continue to secondary school in Bos. Petrovac. Here they can enroll in general studies, economics, forestry, and 2 or 3 other specialties depending on the students' interests.
As far as secondary education is concerned, it would be beneficial to achieve a tighter collaboration with the directors of the Bos. Petrovac Municipality, administrators at the mixed middle school, and the authorized ministry of the Una-Sana County. How in the next several years will the students which will be needed for the economy of this municipality, like the lumber workers, tourist agents, farmers, machinists, skilled labor etc.
Also in the following period the municipality must allow in its development plan for highly skilled workers that could regulate the distribution of stipends for these skills, which are most important to their municipality and its economy.
I.10.Culture and Athletics
As the Petrovac municipality
was established in the post Dayton period
it falls into the category of smallest townships
in the Republic of Serbia, though it is
spacious as well as populated. Life started
practically from the ashes because for the
time of war, especially when mid September
1995 the people had to flee Drinic, as well
as the whole Bos Petrovac territory, almost
100% of the housing fund was devastated
as were the buildings in the town center.
With regards to this fact, culture and sports
has completely slowed down. A sports club
was introduced but in the beginning it wasn't
a priority since the priority was to develop
the economy. Therefore culture and sport
are a widespread and big problem and it
is as if a "baby in swaddling clothes".
Currently our municipality does not have a cultural center nor anyone employed in the cultural field nor a space devoted to that purpose. Of Cultural institutes, only the school library that is used by the elementary school students and teachers is worth mentioning, but it is rarely visited by the remaining residents.
In the folds of the school, an assembly hall exists in which the municipality and some enthusiasts occasionally organize a book reading or concert. Recently a folklore ensemble has begun for the elementary school children that can be the foundation for further development of cultural contents of the field of folklore and music along with adequate support f appropriate costumes and musical instruments.
As in culture, likewise
in sport-the problems are similar if not
the same. The municipality helped obtain
association with sport that needs to be
a leader of development in the field. The
association has already shown itself through
the organization of the Zoran Stoisavljević
memorial football tournament which brings
together 8-10 years every year, from our
Municipality as well as the surrounding
townships. The association has initiated
the upkeep of the football matches between
veteran footballers of Petrovac and Drvar,
alternating between the villages each year.
Similar matches occur between the veterans
of Petrovac and Čelarevo, where a majority
of displaced Petrovacans of the Second World
War colonized. Joining the veteran players
at these matches is a number of younger
players which are showing a greater interest
It is also worth mentioning that at the site of the Hunter's Lodge in Veliko Vrelo there is a small court for mini football, hand ball, and volleyball. This is a good start for the future of sport in the municipality. Currently there are no registered sports clubs in the municipality. As states, sports are not yet developed but serious assumptions can be made that it could be the main gatherer and positive educator of the youth.
The local administration
of the Petrovac Drinić municipality is organized
thru the Municipal Board, the Municipality
Administration and the Mayor. The Board
has 11 board members, which, based on the
foundation of their developmental plan,
discuss, decide, and bring to resolution
all the matters important for the life of
their residents and development of the municipality.
The Chief of the municipality was chosen immediately after the 2004 Election and is concerned with carrying out the Boards decisions, but the execution of governmental functions is done thru the Municipal Administration which employs 12 employees. In addition to the Chief, the following positions are represented: Secretary of the Municipal Board, Financial Administrator, Cashier, Social & Veteran Administrator, Registrar, Public Inspector & Urban Development Administrator, Economic Administrator, Technical Secretary, 2 drivers, and one janitor.
The Municipal Administration Office (MAO) is a united entity without offices and departments which the Chief directs. Currently the MAO contains the following: 2, 4, 1, 2, 1, and 1. In addition to the cited functions with the MAO performs, there exists the need to occasionally hire a business commissioner and sanitation inspector.
In possession of the
MAO are five computers that are not networked.
Each administrator works separately, and
from respective software they have programs
for bookkeeping, Disabled veterans, welfare,
and Election Board BiH ballots. The possibility
of being linked to the Internet exists but
because of poor telephone connections that
I.12.Demographics and the Job Market
The population of one
local community represents the greatest
worth in its development and has two roles:
the role of producers and the role of consumers.
Observing the demographic picture and the
job market in the Petrovac municipality
requires a short review of history. That
is to say that it is familiar the Petrovac
Municipality became through the division
of Bos Petrovac be cause of the Dayton Peace
Agreement. Seventeen percent territorially
of the Petrovac Municipality is owned by
the RS, and the county seat in the village
of Drinić which, in the Municipality, includes
the greatest part of the territory, as well
as the greatest part of residents. If two
previous census reports are observed, those
from 1981 and 1991 then it can be concluded
that the number of residents is decreasing.
There were 16,374 residents reported in
1981 and 15,552 in 1991. The village Drinić
has the same tendency even though it was
part of the Bos. Petrovac municipality:
400 residents in 1981 and 362 residents
in 1991. .
The Petrovac Municipality was founded as a need for the worried population of Serbian nationality in Derventa (the place where the greatest numbers of Petrovcani Serbs found accommodation).It is known that reporting residents after the war did not happen so that the Municipal Administration Office of Petrovac Municipality because of the need for a real budget and development plans carried out an unofficial report and confirmed the following December 31, 2004:
-population with permanent
resident status 376
-population with temporary resident status:
1250 (mostly from the Bos. Petrovac municipality)
The demographic breakdown of the 376 permanent
residents is as follows: 191 males, 185
females, 119 employed, 62 unemployed, 111
retirees, 9 college students, 55 elementary/secondary
school students, 20 children under 6 years
of age Demographics by age: 95 under 18
years of age, 161 between 19 and 50 years
of age, 120 over 50 years of age.
by skill level: VSS 14, VŠ 17, VK 8, KV
40, SSS 131, OŠ 70 and without school 32.
Demographics by industry(does not necessarily give a clear picture of the population because there are 504 workers within the territory):
167 Forestry, 224 Lumber processing, 21 Construction, 5 Trade, 8 Hospitality, 5 Public Service, 3 Banks, 10 Healthcare, 13 Education, 12 Government Administration, 7 Law Enforcement, 28 other
Data regarding the unemployed can be taken with reserve since many don't report to the Employment Bureau because they don't trust that the bureau can ensure a job. Like wise the data for the employed may not be accurate since there exists a number of unreported workers ('under the table' workers). On the basis of the data, it can be concluded:
-the number of employed
workers in the Municipality is greater than
the population of permanent residents in
the majority of firms, the management isn’t
trained enough for current conditions of
the economic market,
-workers in firms, establishments,
and local administration are not outfitted
with modern conditions of business (information/computer
technology, knowledge of foreign languages,
-to create conditions
for new job positions like those from the
Drinic Bureau as well as the surrounding
municipalities, mainly from the Bos. Petrovac
