AGUSTIN MONTOYA PEREZ, a Mojacar councillor for the last 10 years, recently retired.

Responsible for Public Works, Services, Parks and Gardens, Perez would always be remembered for his team spirit and his dedication to his department “24 hours a day, seven days a week for 10 years,” as Mojacar mayor Rosa Maria Cano pointed out.

Socialist councillor and party spokesman Manuel Zamaro Fernandez also thanked Montoya for his work over the years and the assistance he always provided whenever and wherever it was required.
