Manuel Ros, spokesman for the PSOE in Algorfa, criticized the mayor last week stating that his council teams were only interested in cleaning up local parks and other green areas during the run up to elections.
According to Snr Ros, despite regular complaints about their cleanliness, from residents in urban developments such as residential Lo Crispin or those located close to the golf course, it is only in recent weeks that they have seen any improvement to the usual grubby state that they have to suffer.
Indeed on many occasions local residents have said they have been so ashamed at the state of their local leisure areas that they have offered to clean up the parks themselves but they have been told not to do so by council autho,rities.
Ros also said that complaints are also common among young families living in the urban area located by the Benejúzar exit, in this case the state of the playground which is often used by small children is disgusting.
The Socialists criticize the lack of sanitation in and around the park and that say that many of the facilities in the playground are damaged and that the fence surrounding the area is broken.
PP Mayor Antonio Lorenzo said that the allegations are unfounded and that his council team can regularly be seen out cleaning local parks which he says are generally kept in a very good condition.
Of course there are occasional problems” he said, “but residents must take responsibility and call the council department when they see them. In that way we can get workmen onto the sites and deal with such matters quickly”.
