Through a press release, the candidate for mayor of Cieza IU-Win Cieza, Francisco Saorín, has reported the loss to city coffers of 5,926,824 euros from planning agreements, "because the PP that changed the guarantees first demand for mortgages, which makes this huge amount of money is bad. "
Saorín revealed that "debt accounts for 25 percent of total agreement that business are liable to pay as compensation for having obtained the reclassification of their land, with the conventions 'unpaid' four of the six who watched building residential areas with golf courses in our town, known with the name of Cieza Golf, Benis, Casa del Olmo and El Quinto ".
The IU-Greens candidate has stated that "the debt of Cieza Golf, uncollectible because the company was declared a few months ago in bankruptcy (old suspension of payments), amounts to 2,200,000 euros".
Of this amount, "94,000 euros are currently in foreclosure proceedings and have been passed to the accounting category of 'doubtful', beat 520,000 last year and half, in November 2013, and 1,560,000, most of the debt will expire in November 2015. "
As for the debt of Angel Teresa Hermanos, owner of Casa del Olmo Benis and conventions, -continued Saorín- "this, already due, amounts to 1,437,937 euros, but the worst part is that there is a political responsibility very clear to the members of the previous council government team, some with continuity in the present, especially the Mayor Antonio Tamayo, who was the first ruler then and it still is. "
And why there is an undeniable political responsibility, Saorín explains, "because those 1,437,937 euros were guaranteed under the original agreements for a first demand guarantee whose financial expenses were on account of the debtor, which was an absolute guarantee of payment and were replaced by a mortgage on land that now is not worth anything besides that the city would be the last in charge ".
As the last of the planning agreements, the agreement between the council and the commercial West Ward Builders, El Quinto, nor was novated from time to time or paid, so you need to do for the initial 25, 2,573,125 euros, "A agreement expired and you can not collect a single euro, "he explained Saorín.
"Ultimately -precisa Saorín- is a real blunder as a whole, which goes to show that the management of the obligations under the agreements was crony and negligent, and cost money to ciezanos, in revenue lost without necessity, and, moreover, what happened evident the fiasco that has led to this town and its citizens the urban model of General Municipal Plan for 2008, a model that relies on speculative nonsense of 'brick at all costs' and is at the root of urban paralysis afflicting the town of Cieza, a General Plan that can deplete the first installment for review without having undergone the slightest development ".
