A meeting was held by the Local Government Board on Wednesday 16 to understand the process and to reveal the budget allocated to the project.
The details of the tender include an execution period of five years with non renewable contract and an annual budget of €1,398,873.
The councilman of the area of Operational Services, Parks and Gardens, Jose Maria Gomez (PMP) explained tha the large investment has come around due to, “in light of the need to reach the desirable level of quality of service that is provided and presents a shortage of human resources and lack of suitability in various facets relating to material resources”

“EMVIRIA has a totally undersized staff to be able to cover the works entrusted in the due terms of frequency, quality and endowment, which with this new contract will be reinforced”, he continued.
The specifications include different types of green areas with a total surface area of approximately 250,000 square metres, 2,400 trees and 130 planters distributed throughout the municipality. The sheet also defines its maintenance.
The mayor of Rincon de la Victoria, Francisco Salado (PP) has stressed tha the investment has been put into place to “develop a significant improvement in the service, such as the purchase of vehicles and machinery, in short, to provide a service of quality to the useful and competitive citizen”.
