TURRE council says it wants a more citizen “participatory budget” next year.
The aim is to include the most voted for residents’ proposals in the municipal spending plans in 2021.
Citizen Participation councillor David Ruiz Plaza said the collection of proposals would probably start in August, while the voting to select those which will get funding is likely to be in October.
This would not be the first time the local authority in Turre has invited local people to put forward their ideas for the municipality. Four years ago residents were encouraged to present budget proposals, which included issues like water infrastructure improvements, creating a park near to the school and building a pavement of the town’s main road.
