Antonio Penalva, spokesman for the municipal group of IU-Greens, after meeting the General Account of 2013, has been valued the same, noting that "the annual General Account presenting municipalities as an important tool for the management by the municipal government, it allows us to know what has been done in a financial year as well as control the use and allocation has been given to a greater or lesser amount of public funds, it is, ultimately, a control mechanism of the first order and whose knowledge is indispensable public key transparency in municipal management. "
First, in the words of Penalva, it should be noted that, as stated in the report of the Intervention, "the President of the Corporation, ie the Mayor, is to whom the surrender of the General Account, since the has been filed out of time, the Mayor is the first responsible for the breach of accountability in a timely manner before the Court of Accounts. "
Entering the analysis of economic data, the eco-socialist councilor believes that "the indicators provided by the General Account of 2013 are especially bad, especially since the year closed with a debt per capita of 311 euros, very similar to the figure 2012, and that the implementation of the budget spending remains at 75 percent, meaning that a quarter of what the local government initially budgeted has not been executed. "
In this line of criticism, Penalva explains that "in regard to investments were invested only 27.20 euros per capita, a figure that is almost negligible in practice, if the investment effort of the City of Cieza 2013 has remained at a Pyrrhic 5 percent, meaning that for every 100 euros that the City has spent just 5 were allocated to investments. "
Furthermore, "the exercise closed with grants received from the region and other outstanding organizations justify worth over 2 million, with outstanding obligations by nearly 1,300,000 euros, and, with respect to payment of outstanding obligations and exercise closed, as it has only been paid 70 percent of what is owed. "
This council also wanted to emphasize "the high numbers receivable arising from violations of numerous urban and closed prior years, from 2008 to 2012, amounting to one million euros, is evidenced by this little effect on having these sanctions from the point of tax collection view when it comes to fines for illegal constructions that violate urban planning and remain surely today, without the City Council has even been able to collect the fine imposed at the time of its construction. "
In short, "the General Account of the City makes it clear that the situation of the municipal coffers is not nearly as buoyant as sometimes assumed the municipal government, especially for the high level of indebtedness and because, given the underinvestment, one can only conclude that the municipal budget will 'eat' mostly current spending, which continues through the roof, making it an instrument of little use to what you need most in the city of Cieza this time, a minimum economic revival that will reduce somewhat unbearable unemployment figures which hinder the social life of the town.
