"To clean up the municipal accounts and increase the budget from 19 to 31 million allows us to allocate some 250,000 euros more, the legal maximum, to the current cleaning contract, reinforcing mainly the cleaning of Corralejo," said the Councillor for Economy and Finance, Juan José Rodríguez

Rodriguez explained that "this improvement will be noticed imminently. The neighbours and tourists can see how the street sweepers will go six times a week through the streets where it was swept twice a week, it will be cleaned in the afternoon hours, and the services of mechanical sweeping, collection of household items, street cleaning and collection will be expanded. of garbage. "
Oliver González, Councilor for Works and Services, explained that "by increasing the resources of the company that provides services in Corralejo, the environment of the city will be cleaned in the same conditions that are done today in the main avenue. At the same time, this will allow us to reorganize the municipal staff to also strengthen the cleanliness in other areas of Corralejo and the municipality where it is also necessary, such as the neighbourhoods of the periphery. It's an improvement that's going to be noticed. "
For his part, the mayor of La Oliva, Isaí Blanco, said that "this extension of the contract is just the prelude to a general improvement of municipal services. In the next plenary, we want to start the file of a new cleaning contract valued at 2.5 million euros, that is, ten times more than the investment approved today, which will improve the cleanliness of towns and neighbourhoods, maintenance of the schools, and the cleaning of the beaches. "
"As far as cleaning is concerned," Blanco said, "we are talking about doubling the current investment, and a very important project for the future of La Oliva, as it will allow us to adapt the services that lend themselves to the reality of a municipality whose population has increased a lot in recent years. "

The City of La Oliva currently has a contract for the provision of cleaning services valued at 1.2 million euros per year, an amount that rises, according to the variables established according to the amount of waste collected, up to 1, 7 million euros.
Oliver Gonzalez said that "from the Government Group we work very hard to solve the great problems of this municipality. At the moment the resources are not sufficient, because the city council drags important material and personnel deficiencies. It is very difficult to work with the old contracts, taking into account that the population and the tourist occupation have grown a lot, and that is why it is necessary to process new contracts ".
The opposition based its vote against arguing, in general, that the public interest of this contract modification is not justified.
Next contracts
In addition to the aforementioned cleaning contract, the City Council of La Oliva works on the bidding documents to tender new sanitation and telecommunications contracts -these two being debated in today's plenary session-, parks and gardens, legal assistance and collection.
After the budget approved in 2018, the first debated in the City of La Oliva since 2014, the institution executed in this 2019 a few that have meant an increase of 57% over previous ones, doubling the spending capacity, and after reorganizing the municipal debt, cancelling an amount owed of 23 million euros.

That is good news Sam. Now they just need to get the tenders sorted, then the winning lot need to hire and train staff and obtain the extra vehicles, then we might see the welcome improvements. How long do you reckon before they actually get their brooms on the streets? 3 months, 6 months, 2020?  Big Grin

Does 2019 sounds over optimistic? 😂

Honestly, I'm still happy about the local government's acknowledgment and their willingness to do something about it. The biggest issue is that nobody seems to understand that the cleaning isn't a one time job and needs to be done repeatedly. It can feel like a waste of time and Money if it's done only once in a while.
