THE opposition centre-left PSOE party criticised the Junta de Andalucia’s 2020 budget plans for the Almanzora Valley.
Almeria PSOE secretary general and Andalucia parliament member Jose Luis Sanchez Teruel called for investments of €14,850,000 to make up for what the party claimed is the relatively little importance given to the region in the budget.
Sanchez Teruel maintained various employment plans adding up to €2.5 million should be put in place to address what PSOE says is the depopulation many of the province’s inland municipalities are experiencing.
Other investments PSOE wants the Andalucia government to make include €3 million for the Almanzora dual-carriageway and Fines to Purchena highway, and €2.9 million for water desalination plant projects in Cantoria and Arboleas.
A further €1.2 million should be spend on cleaning out the Almanzora river course and on the protection of the rive Armuña, the provincial PSOE secretary general argued.
In addition PSOE demanded the regional administration invest in €1 million of reforms to schools in Cantoria and Purchena and €350,000 in the Cantoria and Albox health centres.
