"We have asked the mayor to take an example from other municipalities that have decided to allocate part of the public salaries this March to help people who are truly going through very hard times," said popular spokeswoman Eva Reverte, who has also requested that the items intended for the celebration of the collegiate bodies, such as Government Boards, Commissions and Plenaries, be used for the same purpose.
In addition, he has sued the mayor to study urgently that municipal taxes are not charged and that the term of what is due is extended at least until the end of the year.
Likewise, the popular mayor has reached out to the local Executive to work together on initiatives that "will benefit all citizens", since "now more than ever we must act in a responsible and coordinated manner for the common interest of residents of Águilas ".
In this sense, he has proposed to the Government team to analyze what events are not going to take place in the town during these months so that the resources that were going to be used for this purpose can be used to try, as far as possible, mitigate the situation of families, companies and self-employed workers who have been forced to interrupt their work activity.
Reverte has stressed that "since March 13, that the regional president, Fernando López Miras, ordered the confinement in our town, we have shown respect and loyalty to the Government Team, but we understand that these measures must be taken now, before launch the payrolls of released councilors, this March. "
"The regional government will modify the fiscal calendar so that the impact of local taxes can be adapted to the situation of each municipality, with the commitment to advance an amount so that treasury tensions are not generated," Reverte explained, who stressed that In this way, "the city council will be able to adequately articulate the planning of this type of initiatives that will mitigate the economic effects that the health crisis is causing on the families of the locality."
It is time that, in addition to fighting the spread of the virus, we begin to think about the day when this situation ends, and from all administrations and institutions we must help so that no one who has had to stop their activity cannot start it again.
"We are sure that aid must be quick, because whoever does not return to normal soon will probably not return," Reverte concluded.
