Almeria. The City Council received the most complaints about cleanliness from El Zapillo, the Historic District and other areas. This shows that 25 million euros per year we spend on cleaning services are not being properly used. Miguel Cazorla (spokesman for the Municipal Group of Citizens) in Almeria City Council expressed this sentiment at a press conference following the commissions to monitor concessioned municipal services such as streets cleaning, transport, parks, and urban waste. Miguel Cazorla, a councilor from the liberal formation, lamented the lack of federations for neighborhood associations in the commissions. Miguel Cazorla said that this was due to the "terrible relationship" between the government team and the neighborhood movement. He warned that "it is obvious that the PP doesn't believe in the neighborhood movement and they are boring them."
Cazorla once again denounced the lack of street cleaning staff, pointing out that the contract stipulates that no employees are being hired. However, it is very concerning that the government team has not given the numbers of cleaning workers who have been working in the streets. The mayor stated that Almeria looks dirty everywhere you look and that the mayor does not care about this problem.
Cazorla also spoke out about "numerous complaints", about the poor maintenance of certain green spaces and parks. He said that streets and squares are left without any maintenance for years. In fact, 3500 incidents were reported in 2021 due to this lack of maintenance. "The 250 euro supplement agreed with workers at this service is not being followed."
Residents demanded that a plan be developed to bury garbage cans whenever possible. This was recommended by the city.
In our city, there are facades of monuments with garbage bins attached. Surprisingly, the responsible councilor from the PP literally said that Almeria doesn't want to bury them. What Almeria do you mean?, She has questioned her.
Cazorla, who requested the Surbus commission's special Fair plan, has expressed regret that the 'Card 10’ service, which was announced years ago and could be of great benefit to many citizens, has not been launched. He also criticized the "grotesqueness" of a number of poor decisions in the Surbus commission. This refers to the "poor planning for the works being done in many streets (Blas infante, Ricardos and San Juan Bosco). They cause traffic jams every day, especially in the middle of the city. This is pissing off half the population>>. They open the city to electoral plays in the hope of gaining political gains at the polls every time they approach the date for the municipal elections. But the Almeria people aren't stupid. These works can be and should be better planned and carried out over the four years of the mandate. He has not sentenced.
