Not so simple arithmetic for Calpe 

ACQUIRING five tablets and 11 mobiles for Partido Popular and Ciudadanos councillors has cost the town hall €4,000. 
Eliminating 1,000 kilos of documents from the Town Planning department last June was another outlay together with microchips and vaccines for animals in the municipal pound that were included in a total of €217,529 not approved beforehand by the town hall auditor. 
Practically all of the bills were dated between May and July this year during the final phase of the previous town hall’s term in power or during the interim period between the May 26 municipal elections and the constitution of the new council. 
Nevertheless, municipal sources revealed, the town hall must pay these bills because the services have been provided and items used.  Should it fail to do so, it could be accused of unjustified enrichment. 
There have also been questions regarding the rental paid to a private owner for premises in Calle Llibertat that are used by the Neighbourhood Police but which sources claim has not passed through the town hall’s fiscal inspection process.
