Budget Blow

1 min read

Torrevieja council will have to continue operating on budgets drawn up last year, after the 11 Partido Popular opposition councillors combined with the two Ciudadanos representatives to vote down the 2016 budget at last Friday’s special plenary meeting. The vote is a major blow for the coalition administration which took office in the summer of 2015. 

PP leader Eduardo Dolon (pictured) said that seven and half million euros of cuts and the planned takeover by the council of waste collection services were the reason for his party’s opposition. The vote means that waste contractor Acciona will continue for the time being to provide a service on a monthly basis costing 16 million euros per annum, more than if a full contract was in place.
