The ex-stall holders from the very “ex” muncipal market will receive compensation, says the Mayor of Almuñécar, Trinidad Herrera.
According to the Mayor, “This subvention comes about as part of the Council’s responsibility towards leaseholders, including 2,800 euros for the emergency eviction; loss of perishable goods, 1,000 euros; expense of opening a new premises, 1,000 euros, moving costs, 200 euros, which amount to 5,000 euros in compensation.
However, she explained, this subvention will be biannual, meaning that they will receive 50% during 2020 and the other 50% during next year.
She also guarantees that they will be able to return to the new market once it is built and opened.
The new market will have room for 40 stalls, as well as a large parking area, thanks to its budget of four-million euros. It will be distributed over two floors and basement parking. It will also have 500 sq/m set aside for individual business premises (shops & bars) on the 2nd floor.
Returning to the 40 market stalls, 20 will be for fishmongers, 10 for greengrocers, six for butchers and four for other kinds of products.
