The Cen­tral Union of Mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties of Greece (KEDE) yesterday wrote to Econ­omy Min­is­ter Gior­gos Stathakis to com­plain that mu­nic­i­pal projects worth a to­tal of 1.2 bil­lion eu­ros, for which Euro­pean Union sub­si­dies have been ap­proved, are un­able to pro­ceed as the gov­ern­ment has not signed them off. In the let­ter, which is signed by KEDE pres­i­dent and Maroussi Mayor Gior­gos Pa­toulis, lo­cal au­thor­ity of­fi­cials ex­press con­cern that projects across the coun­try for which ten­ders have al­ready been is­sued could be left un­fin­ished. A to­tal of 387 projects in 113 mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties worth 600 mil­lion eu­ros are cur­rently on hold as the re­quired fund­ing has not been dis­bursed, ac­cord­ing to sources.
