Complaints made over dirty streets in Almuñecar

RESIDENTS and opposition parties in Almuñecar and La Herradura have complained about the poor conditions of the town’s streets and public spaces.
During the summer season, population doubles in number in Almuñecar and La Herradura, and the same happens to the amount of waste. The local PSOE team has made complaints about the waste seen these days across the Costa Tropical town and its districts, which, they claimed, highly damages the municipality’s reputation amongst tourists.
“We are a tourist destination and we cannot give this negative image to those who visit us,” said socialist councillor, Pablo Ruiz Diaz. “Our streets and beaches must offer their best side.” Mr Ruiz also claimed several residents and visitors had personally expressed their dissatisfaction with this issue.
“We have visited locations in Almuñecar and La Herradura and observed that what residents told us was true: there are places which are far from ideal,” he said.
Another example of this situation, the PSOE said, was the stagnant water under the Las Gondolas bridge, which cause a nasty smell and attract mosquitoes, causing concern amongst residents.
Finally, the PSOE stressed that these criticisms were in no way directed to the maintenance workers of the town, but to the current local government. They have requested the council increase cleaning personnel to cover the needs of a larger population.
