Res­i­dents meet the mayor

Costa Blanca News (South Edition) - - News -

MAYOR Emilio Bas­cuñana and co­or­di­na­tor for Ori­huela Costa Luisa Boné have met with Cam­poamor res­i­dents to dis­cuss their com­plaints and sug­ges­tions.

Res­i­dents' as­so­ci­a­tion rep­re­sen­ta­tives called for refuse and gar­den waste to be col­lected more of­ten and noted that the streets were dirty. They asked for a com­pre­hen­sive dis­in­fec­tion cam­paign to kill pests such as cock­roaches and mos­qui­toes - and said the wa­ter­courses have to be cleared.

Mayor Bas­cuñana and coun­cil­lor Boné told the res­i­dents that €60,000 will be in­vested in a wooden ac­cess ramp to Bar­ranco Ru­bio beach and the green light has been given by the na­tional coast depart­ment for the scheme. They also said streets and pave­ments in Avenida de las Adelfas, Miguel de Una­muno, Calle Lope de Vega and Gus­tavo Adolfo Béc­quer will be resur­faced, along with the street to La Glea beach. At the same time the prom­e­nade and street fur­ni­ture at La Glea will be re­furs­bished. Mayor Bas­cuñana said the coun­cil has asked the re­gional gov­ern­ment to pro­tect the pine for­est at Cam­poamor from the pine shoot bee­tle and en­cour­aged res­i­dents to sub­mit com­plaints through the coun­cil’s reg­istry. ORI­HUELA town hall is in­vest­ing €20,800 to re­pair seven refuse col­lec­tion lor­ries.

Coun­cil­lor Dá­maso Apari­cio said new metal bot­toms will be welded into the in­te­rior of the trucks. He said spillages from waste de­com­pos­ing in rub­bish bags had caused the prob­lem.

These were ‘nor­mal main­te­nance works’, he noted, although they aim to pur­chase new lor­ries in the fu­ture.

How­ever, it is un­clear how new ma­chin­ery can be pur­chased as the depart­ment’s bud­get for 2017 is €900,000 lower than in 2016.
