THE Axarquia region will this year have 10 boats working on keeping its coasts spotless for tourists and locals.
Acting President of the Commonwealth of Costa del Sol-Axarquia municipalities and mayor of Torrox, Oscar Medina, together with Velez-Malaga mayor, Antonio Moreno, presented the coastal cleaning deployment which will take care of waters and beaches during the summer season of 2015.
The team is made up by 10 boats, one more than in 2014, and the service will run until September 15, having been awarded to local company Servimar Axarquia for under €300,000. Mr Medina explained that the budget was significantly lower than the money paid a few years ago, which amounted to €500,000.
The ships will be distributed amongst the region’s towns: Velez-Malaga will have three crafts, Nerja and Torrox two each, and Algarrobo and Rincon de la Victoria will have one each.
“Having awarded the services to a local company, this represents the creation of around 20 employment positions in the area,” said Mr Moreno.
