Antonio Penalva, councilman and spokesman for IU-Greens, has been commissioned to make known, through public press conference, Amendments of his group to municipal budgets for 2015. From the outset, Penalva has criticized the "lack of transparency and make it difficult to maximize the work of the opposition, since we only had two working days to study the documentation and formulate alternatives. "
However, "the council of IU-Greens, with our team of collaborators, we have worked this bridge to go to the budget debate with the homework done."
In relation to the proposal of the government team, is criticized especially that "these budgets are not the main problem of the municipality, suffered for 4,000 ciezanos addressed: the lack of jobs" and "inconsistency also stands with public statements the Councillor of Finance, in the sense that it wants to charge every penny of debt from planning agreements when budgets do not include a single euro for this item. "
On the revenue side, we should mention "the rise of IBI, when he said that with the lowering of the rate he was going to maintain but not increase revenue, the brutal fall of more than 60 100 in indirect taxes, by the lack of activity in the construction sector and foresight to collect 130,000 euros in fines for traffic as well as the use of a loan of 625,000 euros for the new Riverside Drive. "
As planned expenditures, "the staff up almost 20 100, while current expenditure as a whole (the imperative to open the blind) increased by 8.15%, when the CPI is negative rates; no less than 89.53% of current revenue goes to current spending. "
Is also questioned, "so meager, the amount of 158,000 euros for the promotion of employment, it really gives for very little, while allocations for social services are testimonial".
On the contrary, "the heated pool over 250,000 euros swallows, and more than 130,000 consortium created to build".
Real investments "fall by 14 100 in relation to 2014, and about 1.4 million planned the big chop carries future Riverside Drive."
Moreover, "the only subsidies provided, 223,000 euros, are registered, and still no public call for subsidies".
Another thing to note, in the opinion of Penalva, is that the outstanding debt of the municipality is increased by 1.766 million euros, which joined returns to do the settlements Involvement State Tax 2007 2008 a "real debt" of 13.2 million euros would be achieved compared to 11 current and doubled in 2007 was 7.5 million.
Faced with a budget "that can only be described as as useless because they do not address the problems that are strangling the development of the municipality," Penalva announced at the press conference "the filing of an amendment to the whole and, in anticipation of their likely rejection twenty partial amendments amounting to 3.5 million euros intended to create jobs, improve social support, help poor countries and make the city more livable.
