Trabalon, spokesman for the local Partido Popular party, said that the Reloj clock tower was totally abandoned.
“It’s not only that its machinery stopped working years ago,” he said. “It is no longer white but is totally dirty since the calima.”
The PP spokesman added that many residents had mentioned to him that the Reloj needed improvements. “We are grateful that they pass on their concerns and problems, and this is one of them,” Trabalon added.
The spokesman has now written to the town hall, calling for the monument to be thoroughly cleaned and repainted if necessary.
“We have to make the most of our monuments. Zurgena does not have a beach but it does have tourist attractions in its monuments, gastronomy and nature,” he wrote.
“The town hall could clean the Reloj for the the San Ramon fiestas at the end of August,” Trabalon suggested.
