MC will ask in the next plenary for the plans of 'La Trinca' for pending actions, some or tendered
This morning, the Councilor of the municipal group MC Cartagena, Isabel García, stressed that "the electoral will of the former Socialist councilor Juan Pedro Torralba to limit the maximum amount of the works of the Participatory Budgets of 2018 to 75,000 euros has caused a large many actions have been confirmed as clearly ineffective. We have checked what we already knew, it was to 'patch' without solving the real problems of the neighbors. "
An obvious example of this dysfunction in the mode of execution is the integral remodeling of Sauces Park.
"This work exemplifies the best version of the 'handyman' of Alumbres. An action awarded on December 28, 2018, with an execution period of two months, which the winning company did not meet, requesting an extension on the day it should end, moratorium that was denied when attempting against the Law of Contracts of Public Administrations, so they end up opting to request the modification of the project due to 'supervening circumstances', which is also not accepted by the Hiring negotiated when trying to include other arrangements that they cannot be justified under that concept. "
In this context, the mayor recalled that "before such a fudge, in September 2019, the head of contract execution and control proposes the resolution of the contract and a new tender. And in the meantime, time is still running. A new one is needed. drafting of the project, the publication of its tender, the holding of recruitment tables, etc. Therefore, a work that was to be completed in sixty days will not be finished until in many months, mid 2020 ".
"However," continued the Cartagena leader, "according to the information provided by the City Council itself on its website, that of Sauces is just one more of the works of the Participatory Budgets of 2018 that remain unfinished. Only ten have been completed of the twenty-eight elected, which represents only 40%. "
"From MC Cartagena we have collected the discomfort and feeling of lack of protection and abandonment of the neighbors. They feel cheated because whatever they vote, only the will of Mr. Torralba is done. Echoing this social concern, we will ask in the next plenary session the plans of the Government of 'La Trinca' to finalize them, if they intend to do so ", concluded Isabel García.
