The socialist spokesperson in the San Javier City Council, Laura Gil, emphasizes that "with the increase in the number of unemployed that the municipality is suffering, above the regional and national average, and companies trying to survive the crisis in the Mar Menor, the pandemic and the closure of the airport, the mayor should compensate the deficit by demanding the payment of improper powers from the Autonomous Community ". The socialist councilors in the San Javier City Council have voted in the municipal plenary session "no" to the imposition of a garbage collection fee that will entail an expense of about 60 euros per home, and which until now did not exist in the municipality as compensation high cost of the Real Estate Tax issued by the Consistory after the "survey" it carried out. The secretary general of the PSOE of San Javier, Laura Gil, explained that "we are opposed to the mayor wanting to cover the deficit of the municipal coffers at the cost of asking for more effort from the neighbors, the gap in the accounts could be cushioned if the Regional Government would assume more expenses of the competitions that are autonomic and that at the moment we support from the City council, as they are the Conservatory of Music, the School of Languages ??or the bridge of the Estacio ". "We cannot settle for another turn of the screw for companies and neighbors, without even taking into account their income level, because José Miguel Luengo does not dare to demand from his regional bosses what corresponds to us who live in San Javier "added Gil, who recalled that" he also does it by clinging to a macro-contract for garbage collection and street cleaning management, which we opposed because it was to provide FCC with a public service for an amount that already seemed disproportionate to us.
" Up to 1,408.68 euros per bar and 7,043.38 euros per store each year "With this new rate, the PP does not take into account that we have been a year and a half in which every day there are more unemployed people in the municipality, with a percentage increase well above the regional and national average.
They also do not take into account that small and medium-sized entrepreneurs are balancing to maintain their businesses since the closure of the airport, the anoxia of the Mar Menor and now with the pandemic, "added the socialist leader. In addition, the municipal spokesperson explained that "thanks to the suspension of the application of the spending rule by the Central Government, the remaining treasury can be used for the reconstruction of San Javier, without the need to charge the citizens more." . "This is not the time for our bars and cafes to pay for this concept from 169.04 to 1,408.68 euros per year, nor for our businesses to have to pay for this rate between 102.54 euros and 7,043.38 euros.
We have to help them not suffocate them, "added the mayor.
