The mayor of Jumilla, Juana Guardiola, met today with the president of the Autonomous Community, Fernando López, during the round of contacts with the first local councilors.
Different needs of the municipality have been addressed, "some already recurring, which must be sought out once," said the mayor.
The conservation deficiencies of regional roads such as Ontur and Albatana, "insecure, impassable and affected by torrential rains last September," have been on the table, as well as those of rural roads approved in July 2017 corresponding to the call for the end of 2016 and whose improvements with European funds will be included in this year's budget, as the president has assured the mayor.
Likewise, Juana Guardiola has claimed that "the demolition of two boarded and unhealthy social blocks that exist in the Barrio de Santiago and are owned by the CARM is undertaken, with the aim of all regenerating this much needed area and looking for a solution".
The mayor of Jumilla has asked López Miras, in addition, to provide seats arranged to the residence and day center where the old Asylum was located and that has been reformed by Messengers of Peace, "a commitment acquired with all of us for the previous Minister of Social Policy, "he said.
Another issue to discuss has once again been the need for collaboration in the construction of a Security Center in Jumilla where to locate the Local Police and whose project has already been commissioned by the City Council.
"All centers of this type in different municipalities have received important grants, so they will be transferred to be studied by CARM," he added.
Likewise, the mayor has informed the president that the procedures for transferring the land by the City Council for the construction of the High Resolution Integral Center are being finalized.
"Another issue, I believe that common to all, is the financing that must come to the City Councils to meet the improper expenses that we have been supporting in the municipal budgets, in our case not now, but for many years. We are underfunded more than 3 million every year, which prevents us from investing that money in our own expenses. We have also referred to water, since in Jumilla we depend solely on our aquifers and we must find a solution to get them to be recharged, since they are overexploited " , the mayor has concluded.
