DIPUTACION HELP: Eugenio Gonzalez’s department provides assistance for municipalities

Provincial council, the Diputacion, is assisting 98 town halls with human resources and payroll management.

Eugenio Gonzalez, who heads the Diputacion’s Help for Municipalities department, explained that ensuring town halls had sufficient staff and payments were made on time guaranteed that they could continue to provide essential services.

It was a “maximum priority” to ensure that town halls, groups of municipalities and consortiums had personnel capable of organising staff, dealing with the payroll and keeping up to date with regulations and changes in the law that affected salaries, contracts and leave amongst other issues.


“This translates into fighting depopulation,” Gonzalez declared.

Linda came to Spain to live when she was 24, just over 52 years ago, and her husband is Spanish. She began writing for English-language local newspapers in the mid-1970s and hasn’t stopped since! She leads a Spanish life, which she believes is vital when conveying the news to English-speaking residents, and along the way she produced two editions of Expand Your Spanish, helping English-speakers to enlarge their knowledge of the language. She was excited to be in at the birth of the Euro Weekly News in 1999 and is still passionately writing for the paper 22 years later.
