MOTRIL is recommencing Public Works projects funded by the regional government’s Agricultural Employment Development (PFEA) programme.
These projects are included in town hall’s plans to reactivate Motril’s economy and local businesses with the backing of local political parties and social sectors.
Five weeks after the national government’s State of Alarm decree Motril began to recover the rhythm of municipal projects at the emblematic Pueblos de America park where 10 people are now employed.
Motril’s mayor Luisa Garcia Chamorro stressed the town hall’s commitment to a gradual return to municipal activity while prioritising the protection and health of both employees and residents.
The town hall had to contribute to rebooting the local economy by creating employment, said Garcia Chamorro, who pointed out that PFEA-funded projects provided work and brought indirect benefits to the local economy through the purchase of building materials.
The PFEA programme will cover the €290,000 cost of the park’s pathway and the town’s bicycle lane in line with EU directives regarding sustainable development, reducing air and noise pollution and protecting biodiversity in urban areas.
