THE new mayor of Huercal-Overa has named his council team line-up.
Domingo Fernandez explained the local authority positions are organised into three main areas.
First Deputy-Mayor Jose Diego Lopez heads Culture, Knowledge and Social Well-being, which compasses health, sport, youth, tourism, education, training and equality, among others.
Monica Navarro is Second Deputy-Mayor, and oversees Economic Management and Employment Training, which includes finance, European programmes and institutional relations.
The Third Deputy-Mayor is Blas Sanchez, whose area is Territory Management. This covers matters like public works, infrastructure, sustainable development, urban planning and the environment.
“The distribution of the councillorships had been done with the conviction that the councillors are going to do great work in the different areas,” Fernandez commented.
“All our councillors are people defined by their dedication and capacity for work, and with them we are going to carry on making Huercal-Overa a reference point municipality.”
Fernandez took over as head of Huercal-Overa’s local authority following a vote of no confidence at an extraordinary council session last Friday.
