A small respite for the municipal coffers of Villanueva del Río Segura.
The Ministry of Finance has approved the Adjustment Plan presented by the City Council and has agreed to grant the requested assistance granted by the Fund for the Financial Sustainability of Local Authorities.
From the Ministry was informed last Friday December 9 that the valuation was made with a "favorable" result.
Villanueva is in the list of municipalities in financial risk situation, giving the Ministry its approval to the measures adopted so far by the new Corporation presided over by Jesús Viciana and to be taken according to the Plan of Adjustment "serious, realistic and moderate" .
The mayor of Hacienda, Soledad Gambín, points out that "for the first time, a Plan of Adjustment presented by this City Council before the Ministry of Finance has had a favorable assessment, which is very good news for Villanueva, the fruit of the responsibility of Current government team.We value very positively the aid obtained to continue making debt sustainable.It will be possible to face a small part of the multiple obligations carried over for years by Corporations of the PP, as is the concrete case of a final judicial decision by An amount of about 120,000 â‚¬, money that the PP was spent and now must be returned.
Gambin adds that "we all knew that these large debts involved commitments, which were repeatedly ignored under the mandates of the previous mayor, who was unable, among many other things, to present in many years an Adjustment Plan in conditions, We are aware that we have to deal with a situation that we have not generated, and that we have to face the consequences of its disastrous management. Take measures that will lead us to the achievement of sustainable debt with the least possible harm to the citizen. "
"The neighbors must know that the irresponsibility of the PP sending the Ministry a single Plan that was not worth anything, have cost us all a lot of money. The PP has no political or moral legitimacy to give management lessons to anyone, since Are the only ones responsible for having to take measures of adjustment to stop the ruin they have generated with their nefarious management and waste.As the horse of Atila, where they passed the grass does not grow.Easy was to waste the money from the urban agreements On the contrary, confronting and trying to redress the economic situation is the difficult road, and we are willing to seek solutions to a problem that we have not generated, but which We will not ignore our responsibility of Government, "emphasizes Viciana.
In addition, Viciana states that "should know the councilors of the PP, who lie when they boast of the investments carried out by the Popular Party. Or are they unaware that the works with which they intend to justify these alleged investments, in addition to being Subsidies awarded from Murcia, are above without realizing or justify in their majority? For example, the works of the nursery whose squares never got to do and that supposes a serious problem for this City, when asking us the return of 700.000 â‚¬, including â‚¬ 150,000 of default interest, and they forget to mention that the loans signed by the PP (some in terms of usury), as well as having wasted the money entered by the Urban Agreements, have ended up leaving Villanueva in absolute ruin with a debt Of almost 13 million euros. "
Both the Adjustment Plan and the request for adhesion to the Ministry's aids were approved in plenary sessions with the votes in favor of the Socialist Group and the votes against the PP.
According to Viciana "an incomprehensible and irresponsible attitude, when they were the ones that generated this dismal situation." From the Socialist Group we have insisted on the need to create a common front for all parties, so that we can all commit ourselves to keep the current line Of coherence that has been recognized by the Ministry, governs whoever governs in the future, to stabilize the very serious situation of the City Council The Popular Party seeks to justify the unjustifiable and continues with its campaigns of populism and demagogy. We must govern from closeness, honesty, and responsibility with public resources, treating the neighbors as adults, because it is the only way out of this all together. "
