WORKS on the new Huercal-Overa municipal music school are progressing at quite a pace, and should be completed in the autumn, the construction company says.
Mayor Francisca Lourdes Fernandez and Treasury councillor Juan Garcia paid a visit to the site this week to see how it was all going.
The Mayor said the council was meanwhile working on the necessary administrative procedures in order that the Junta de Andalucia officially recognises the studies which it is planned the school will offer from the next 2020-2021 academic year onwards.
Fernandez explained that in order for the school’s activities to get underway in the first term of the next academic year, an alternative space will be made available until the new facility is up and running.
She said this will make it possible to offer basic music teaching with teachers contracted by the council “without having to delay for the estimated period for the reception of the building.”
Once the works have been concluded the building will need to be kitted out, “for which we are going to include a financial section in the current year’s budget”, she added.
The municipal investment in the project is nearly €920,000. It will be a three-storey building, of 1,000sqm in all. Facilities will include classrooms, an audition hall, changing room, terrace and teachers’ room.
