Res­i­dents state their case

Costa Blanca News (South Edition) - - News - Nperez@cb­news.es

By Nuria Pérez THE FED­ER­A­TION of res­i­dents’ as­so­ci­a­tions for Ori­huela Costa (FAOC) cel­e­brated its third an­niver­sary last week.

FAOC’s spokesman, Tomás Moreno, noted that in the last year they had in­formed the town hall about the short­age of ser­vices and lack of in­fra­struc­ture as well as the needs of res­i­dents on the coast.

He also said they had pro­posed so­lu­tions and an­nounced that they would keep on fight­ing to im­prove Ori­huela Costa. Sr Moreno said although lo­cal tax­pay­ers con­trib­uted greatly to the lo­cal trea­sury, they were get­ting very lit­tle in re­turn.

“The FAOC has sub­mit­ted ob­jec­tions to the Cala Mosca build­ing scheme, to the un­bal­anced bud­get for 2017, we have helped the lo­cal depart­ment for res­i­dents’ par­tic­i­pa­tion to launch the district board, and we have asked the rel­e­vant au­thor­i­ties to clean up the wa­ter­courses,” he said.

“We have com­pre­hen­sively re­ported the poor ser­vices for refuse and gar­den waste col­lec­tion, the poor street clean­ing ser­vice, the lack of main­te­nance of parks and roads, amongst oth­ers, and we have made pro­pos­als to im­prove the ser­vices short­fall.”

Sr Moreno said their goal for 2018 was to guar­an­tee a bal­anced bud­get and in­vest­ment for the coast and to make sure the €14 mil­lion from the land auc­tion sale on the coast was in­vested in a bal­anced way.

He en­cour­aged res­i­dents and res­i­dents’ as­so­ci­a­tions to join them and fight to im­prove Ori­huela Costa.
