The mayor requires López Miras a Regional Law of Extraordinary Fiscal Measures for the villages affected by the DANA (24/09/2019)

The mayor of Cartagena, Ana Belén Castejón, met on the morning of today, September 24, with the president of the Autonomous Community, Fernando López Miras, who has demanded a Regional Law of Extraordinary Fiscal Measures for the peoples affected by the DANA;

the implementation of a Special Plan for the coastal towns of the Mar Menor;

compliance with the Law of Rosell;

the gradual withdrawal of asbestos in Cartagena's colleges and institutes;

more financing for the Neighborhoods and Provincials Plan;

and a Regional Local Financing Law that guarantees that Cartagena obtains the funds it needs and that correspond to it, among other issues.

The mayor has asked the president for the approval of a Regional Law of Extraordinary Fiscal Measures for the towns affected by the DANA, which includes exemptions in taxes such as that of patrimonial transitions or that of documented legal acts, in the same way that it was approved when it occurred the terrible earthquake of Lorca.

This law would include tax exemptions such as those mentioned for neighbors affected by this natural catastrophe.

“The earthquake that struck Lorca was devastating, just as this cold drop has been, which has damaged many villages in our Region.

An extraordinary situation requires extraordinary measures and the Autonomous Community must understand that.

Tax exemptions can be of great help to neighbors who are now forced to make large investments to recover everything they have lost, ”explained Castejón.

Likewise, the mayor has requested a special Regional Plan for the coastal towns of the Mar Menor, similar to the one that will be launched by the City Council, and that must be provided with a budget.

“The situation in coastal towns such as Los Nietos and Los Urrutias was already very complicated and the last rains have deteriorated it further.

Our Mar Menor needs the three administrations to go hand in hand and so I have transmitted it to the president, whom I have asked to create a Special Plan for the Recovery of the coastal towns of the Mar Menor, with a specific budget item, such as the one we are going to create in the city Hall.

This plan would be complementary to the tax exemptions that apply, ”said Castejón.

In health matters, Ana Belén Castejón, has demanded that the president comply with Law 3/2016 of March 21 for the full operation of the Hospital Santa María del Rosell.

“It is necessary that, gradually, the service to citizens be improved, giving priority to Hemodynamics, the reduction of waiting lists or the expansion of services that are not currently provided in our municipality.

There are many issues to improve and it is necessary to do it as soon as possible, ”he said.

On the other hand, the mayor reminded López Miras of the need for a calendar, with a budget, for the gradual withdrawal of asbestos in schools in Cartagena.

“We have 26 schools and 8 institutes in whose facilities there is fiber cement.

It is necessary to withdraw it progressively and we want a concrete plan to do it, ”said Castejón.

In the same way, he took advantage of this meeting to request that the Ministry of Tourism be installed in an emblematic building in Cartagena as soon as possible and that the involvement of the Community in the recovery of Cartagena's heritage be greater.

"We have major projects such as the recovery of the Amphitheater, the Old Cathedral, the portico or the gardens of the Roman Theater, which need as much funding as possible," said the mayor.

The mayor has also asked for more funding for the Neighborhoods and Provincials Plan.

In this regard, Castejón has demanded that the president go from the current million euros to the three million there were before the Neighborhood Plan was abolished.

In terms of financing, the mayor has also demanded the approval of a Regional Local Financing Law, as most Autonomous Communities have.

"Each year, the City of Cartagena assumes 14 million euros in improper expenses that must be financed by the CARM," Castejón said.
