Residents of Pago de Guerra and Loma del Gato in Almuñécar/Herradura will have their access roads improved. This was one of the 13 points addressed in the last Plenary Meeting of the Town Council for 2013.
However, before the meeting got under way the Mayor, Trinidad Herrera proposed a one-minute’s silence for José Matías Rivas (Pepe). This was the second such moment of silence held in his honour with the first being held in the Town Hall Square on the day following his death.
Getting back to the access-road improvements, the surface along 1.8 kilometres will be improved, running between Citasol to the Loma del Gato: the surface will be tarmacked and the roadsides cut back with concrete rain channels, explained the Councillor for Medio Rural y Mantenimiento, José Manuel Fernández.
Also included in the Plan Provincial de Obras will be the “widening, improvement and tarmacking,” of the Pago de Guerra access lane. These improvements have a budget of 80,666 euros and will include a containing wall in the Cañada area where the said track joins the N-340, explained the First Councillor for La Herradura, Juan José Ruiz Joya.
Also approved in the Plenary Meeting was the suspension of the stall rents at the Mercado Municipal de Almuñécar during all of 2014. This motion received unanimous support from all parties.
The CA proposed that Almuñécar schoolchildren should have free access to the town’s monuments and parks, which was passed.
The PSOE put forward a proposal for the “corrective action” on the sewage and rain drainage system in La Paloma, which received the go-ahead.
Finally, the IU proposed the creation of community vegetable plots (huertos sociales) overseen by the Town Hall and called for suitable pieces of publicly owned land to be set aside for this. Again, this was approved.
