COUNCILLORS approved Vera’s €21.7 million Budget at the last plenary meeting.

After two years of the pandemic, the town hall has produced a Budget establishing Vera as Levante most important municipality, with more growth and potential than any other in the province, Finance councillor Alfonso Perez Redondo said.

This year’s projects include more parks, improved street lighting and a new library, announced Perez Redondo who highlighted the town hall’s “large-scale investment policies” since 2021.

“Those were the municipality’s largest-ever, with contracts put out to tender that topped €7 million,” Perez Redondo said.

“We shall continue on the same course in 2022,” the councillor added, citing the €584,459 allocated to the new library and €600,000 for landscaping the area surrounding the Charca del Gato lagoon.

Street-lighting for the Asprodalba road will amount to €65,000 with another €740,000 assigned to the family park in the Cabuzana district.

Listing town hall outgoings of €9.3 million, Perez Redondo announced that the local government would not cut back on social spending but intended to maintain this at the same level as last year.

This will account for 6.3 per cent of the town hall’s 2022 Budget, the councillor said.
