Renovation work in Motril’s Municipal Market has begun and the Mayor, Luisa García Chamorro, was straight around there for spot of limelight.
She was accompanied by, the political chameleon himself, Councillor for Urban Development, Antonio Escámez – a disciple of Grouchy Marx’s much quote line, “those are my principles, but if you don’t like them, I have others.”
Anyway, there they were with the Councillor for Public Health, Ángeles López, poking around too, basking, all of them, in the afterglow of having announced that 976,283 euros was to be spent on sprucing up the Mercado de San Agustín.
The Town Coffers will only have to part with 241,136 euros because the Junta de Andalucía and the EU will be financing the rest.
Right, the first stage will be be to whip out 64 windows (28 big ones and 36 small ones) and change them, as well as the change the four existing main, entrance doors for automatic sliding ones. Hmmm… I wonder where those old windows and doors will wind up…
This first stage, accounting for 78,139-euros of the total budget, should be completed by the end of this month.
Stage two comprises of repairing the fascade and painting the whole of the exterior, gobbling up another 18,005 euros.
This second stage should be completed by the end of August or the beginning of September (although they didn’t mention which year… just saying) but another round will kick off come the autumn and last ten months, concluding in October 2020. This latter work is about making the market energy-efficient, which is how Motril managed to codge the funds from th EU and the Junta in the first place.
The Mayor says that the market presently looks like something out of the 50s whereas Sr. Escamez wants the Market to return to its popular use from 20 years ago, but then again he may have been distracted by thoughts of his salary and perks for the next four years.
