The municipal group wants a local online sales platform to be established and to subsidize the adaptation of hotel and commercial premisesThe municipal group of Citizens has proposed a series of measures to "help and support both commerce and the local tourism sector, those most affected by the crisis that is causing the coronavirus." The local spokesman, Víctor Pérez, has sent a letter to the mayor detailing these measures, among which the “creation of a local online sales platform, a 'marketplace' to which our merchants can join and show shipping offers, stand out to home".
In the case of tourism, Pérez has proposed creating a line of direct aid of 100,000 euros for self-employed workers and SMEs aimed at acquiring partitions, individual protection elements and adapting establishments to the rules of social distancing.In the face of the summer campaign, the municipal group of Citizens wants that a plan of anticipation of measures is already established to allow compliance with the rules of social distancing on beaches and public places such as walks or squares.
In the chapter on entrepreneurship, and complementing the measures already being adopted by the regional coalition government of which Ciudadanos is a part, the municipal group has proposed the launch of a contest for innovative ideas regarding business ideas within the current context of crisis.
Socio-sanitary: "We want it to function as an incubator for innovative projects that would be supported with an initial start of 10,000 euros," explained Víctor Pérez.The application of these measures would suppose a "budgetary restructuring" that the orange formation has foreseen.
"There are superfluous expenses or that can be expected, such as the 50,000 euros from the San Javier history book or the 40,000 euros departure from the already canceled Hot Rallye and the foreseeable one from the Folklore Festival, which almost in all probability should be canceled as well" , has remarked the liberal spokesman.
Other items to reorient would be those destined for celebrations and government bodies, items that according to the mayor, "may be more useful serving as support to our merchants and hoteliers.""It is time to add and provide solutions," said Pérez, who believes that "it is essential to be next to our freelancers, our companies and our SMEs so that they can adapt to this new reality and face the future with guarantees."
