The Cartagena City Council has decided to suspend the collection of the rent for the municipal park of social housing, for as long as the health alert lasts.
This was announced by the mayor, Ana Belén Castejón, during an online appearance to explain various initiatives around the coronavirus crisis.
The housing stock is made up of a total of 39 houses, all of them assigned, on a lease basis, to families who are at risk of social exclusion and who for various reasons cannot access the rental market prices.
In this sense, the mayor, Ana Belén Castejón, recalled that â€śthe situation of these families was already vulnerable before this health crisis and has now been aggravated by the regulations that the State of Alarm entails.
That is why we have made the decision to suspend these payments until we can leave the confinement behind. â€ť
Until now, the families who live in these homes, spread throughout the municipality, pay an income that ranges between 50 and 100 euros per month.
"We are living in an unprecedented situation and, as an administration closer to the citizen, we must do our bit to make the lives of the most vulnerable people a little easier," the mayor concluded.
