Benidorm’s mayor, the popular Toni Perez, announced at an informative breakfast this morning his intention to provide eight million euros to the investment chapter of next year’s budget. A few accounts whose draft is already being finalized as explained by the first mayor of the tourist city, who has advanced that has already received proposals from “more than three councillors” to incorporate them in the budget table for the following fiscal year, without going into more detail.
In addition, the first Benidorm mayor stressed that 5% of these eight million euros will go to the projects requested by the neighbors through participatory budgets. A percentage marked beforehand by the regulations governing urban participation, this time amounting to 400,000 euros. In any case, the mayor wanted to point out that, in the event that the volume of investments will finally fall, he will keep the amount quoted for residents’ requests.
In the economic sphere, Pérez has praised the “management” of his group. “Debt at year-end is 49 million. A total of EUR 21 million less than the adjustment plan set as a ceiling at the beginning of this year, which placed the deficit cap at EUR 71 million. An achievement that the mayor of Benidorm has attributed to the good work carried out by his government colleagues. “Resources are being treated well,”defended the first mayor.
In the same vein, the first mayor wanted to point out that quarter after quarter, the Rule of Expenditure and financial sustainability are being complied with. “Something fundamental” for everyday life, Pérez has considered.
