The Plenary of the Nerja Town Council has agreed to compensation for maintenance and transport for the members of the Local Association of Civil Protection Volunteers in Nerja. The proposal presented by the Mayor’s Office, the Department of Security and Transportation, and the Municipal Group of the Popular Party, has had the support of all political groups (PSOE, Adelante, Ciudadanos and Vox).
It was announced by the Councillor for Security and Transport, Francisco Arce, explaining that “the proposal includes the opportunity to compensate the expenses to the members of Civil Protection of Nerja who, although they are volunteers and perform their services for free, are having expenses of transport and maintenance. They will be paid at the proposal of the Head of the Group and a report from the Service Coordinator”. The councillor clarifies that in any case, these compensations will not entail a salary for the provision of the service.
Regarding the amounts, the compensation for maintenance to be received is established as follows: less than 2 hours will not receive maintenance, between 2 and 8 hours will be paid 26 euros per day and for more than 8 hours it will be 32 euros per day. In terms of transport, the amount of the ticket for the collective means of transport used will be paid, and in the event that it is your own vehicle, the amount of 0.19 euros per kilometre will be paid.
The councillor has taken the opportunity to highlight the effort and dedication, in favour of the residents of Nerja and Maro, that the Civil Protection volunteers have been carrying out during the coronavirus crisis, as well as in the rest of the work that they have been developing within their functions.
