DOMINGO FERNANDEZ, the mayor of Huercal Overa, met with the deputy for Provincial Development Agriculture and Environment, Miguel Angel Castellon, to discuss various projects soon to be implemented in the town.
Among the projects discussed was the work already executed in La Atalaya. The area has received a new storm drain to reduce flooding in the area. The storm drain was executed in response to the town’s request after damage caused by heavy rains in 2012. The work is now complete and has received numerous positive responses from the residents who have benefited. “This is a real solution to the problems faced by residents in the area before possible rain. It was done with a deep hydrologic and hydraulic study of the area,” said the mayor.
The mayor moved on to address the needs of the industrial area, with the aim that these be included in the project that the provincial institution will present for the new infrastructure in the industrial estates. Fernandez, commenting after the meeting, called it a positive occasion. He said: “The collaboration between the two institutions is essential to the development of our town. The council is looking at Huercal Overa through various plans and projects that are bringing growth and a better quality of life for our neighbours.”
In response, the provincial deputy congratulated the execution of the projects carried out so far by the project managers and the quality thereof. He added that soon work will begin on the rural roads of Huercal Overa at a cost of €110,000.
