Pricey grooming for pricey studios

CIUDAD DE LA LUZ: Film studios still need to be maintained.

THE Ciudad de la Luz film studios continue to soak up cash. They closed in 2013 on European Union orders, on the grounds of unfair competition because they were built and subsidised with public money.

The deserted 500 million  euro complex still needs maintaining, and the Generalitat has  signed two new contracts totalling more than 400,000 euros per year.  

The biggest bill is from an Albacete-based firm, charging  222,582 euros for tending the gardens and green zones.

Another company, this time from Madrid, will be paid 197,415 euros for upkeep of pathways, drains, and lighting.

Despite the annual outlay of just over 400,000 euros, the regional government has saved 110,000 euros on the two contracts, which were put out to tender to the lowest bidders.

      Insane EU dogma costing Spanish taxpayers when the studios could be providing employment, generating income & taxes.
