Councilors of the PSPV y Compromís They have joined throughout the entire region to protest after the Alicante Provincial Council refused to join the Cooperation Fund, despite the fact that Valencia and Castellón did.
The protest has reached the consistory of Dénia. This morning, under the town hall, councilors from the Dianense formations of the PSPV and Compromís have gathered as a protest. The socialist deputy has also participated Óscar Mengual and the Deputy of Compromís Gerard Fullana.
"It is already well of paralysis on the part of the Government of Diputación de Alicante to the municipal cooperation fund". This is how resounding Mengual was, warning that "it is 5 years now and it is a lot of money that has stopped being received by the municipalities." Specifically, as indicated by both formations, the Marina Alta would have lost 10 and a half million free euros this year, to invest in what each consistory considered, for having renounced the Municipal Cooperation Fund, in which the other municipal councils do participate. the Community. This causes that, in the words of the Socialist deputy, the situation of our municipalities is "absolutely different with respect to the municipalities of València and Castelló".
Fullana has addressed the same line, stating that Dénia would have received up to three times more subsidies in 2020 if it had belonged to the province of València. "In a very complicated year such as that of the pandemic, much greater support would have been received," insisted the deputy.
As well Rafa Carrió, spokesman for Compromís per Dénia, has joined the protest criticizing the work being done by the Alicante Provincial Council: "They dedicate themselves to working their beach bar without taking into account the function of serving the towns, which is one of the obligations that has a deputation ".
