The first 100 days
TEULADA-MORAIRA’S mayor and councillors who head municipal departments recently summed up their first 100 days.
All stressed that when the Compromis-PSOE-Unaligned coalition took over last June, they were entering a town hall that had remained in the hands of the same party, the Partido Popular, for the past 36 years.
Councillors revealed at the public meeting that the present town hall’s first three months in office revealed that they had inherited a “deficient” situation owing to their predecessors’ “disastrous political management.”
Only one Unaligned councillor, Adrian Ruiz, was absent from the meeting for personal reasons.
Before the councillors outlined their departments’ problems and future strategies, Vila first explained that the public administration “never stops” and must continue to function independently of politicians.
“To do that it needs its principal tool, the Budget,” Vila said. “For reasons that we do not understand, and although the previous local government had an overall majority, this was never approved.”
The mayor stressed that the present town hall team are currently working to put through a Budget so that Teulada-Moraira’s priorities can be met in 2020.
“We have managed to unblock €800,000 for the most pressing requirements that did not have an allocation,” Vila continued.
“Everything that we are doing has a legal basis and is being carried out for the benefit of the local population. There is a lot to be done and there are many unpaid bills, but we shall them,” she pledged.
