SHOW US THE MONEY: Elche mayor urges City Councils to get Government funds.
Elche’s Mayor, Carlos González, calls for the Government to recover the transport compensation funds made in a royal decree agreement.
CARLOS GONZÁLEZ has urged for other City Councils to join Elche in demanding that the Government make the €400 million announced in a royal decree available for use.
The large funds were put in place by the Government which would allow municipalities to be compensated for the reduction in income from municipal transport due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The mayor says that the suspension of the fiscal rules in 2020 and 2021 proposed by the Government of Pedro Sánchez “is good news for the municipalities, since it means leaving the spending rule without effect and being able to dispose of the savings generated”.
