"The PP shoots back Cehegín water bill" (14/11/2013)

In the extraordinary plenary session of November 7, the People's Party Local Government approved a new water bill rise, up 12%.

This increase is in addition to that already came just a year and a half, in July 2012, when the Local Government approved an increase of 25% as a result of the upward revision of the rate for drinking water supply, the rate Sewer and maintenance of meters.

Both increases mean that in just a year and a half, the cehegineros pay 40% more in the water bill, accounting for a family of average consumption over 15 € increase per receipt.

As was the case with the first rise, it also had the second vote against the Socialist Municipal Group, for whom the increase "is totally unjustified both from the standpoint of economic and social".

The PSOE is recalled that Commonwealth Taibilla Channel has not raised the price of water, and that if such a circumstance should occur, the receipt would automatically increase due to a revision clause that provided for in the specifications signed with the contractor providing the service supply.

For the Socialist spokesman Jose Rafael Rocamora, this increase represents a new "looting" the ailing economy cehegineras many families who will pay the water, a commodity, a luxury price to pay for the excesses and waste committed by poor PP Government management.

As an alternative to this rise, during the debate, the Socialist spokesman suggested, to cover losses or profit falls AQUAGEST company, concessionaire of supply, the reduction of the fee that the company pays to the City or the use of the 4 million euros, according to City Hall sources, the concessionaire deposited in the municipal treasury at the time of the granting of the service, 2008.


This same session served to establish municipal taxes for the year 2014.

In this regard it is noteworthy that the property tax (Contribution) continue to increase, a result of the assessed value of real estate in Cehegín clearly overestimated.

Remember that, even though the PP Local Government and voted against a motion to full municipal socialist ask the Land Registry proposing a review of assessed values ​​to drop, the PSOE maintains an active campaign to achieve low of this tax in the municipality.

Socialist spokesman reiterated the need to request such review Land Registry property value down, as the current values ​​set in the year 2007, during the housing bubble, taking market values ​​well above the current.

Other taxes such as capital gains or Building Permit reach such high values ​​that are a real damper on economic activity.

During the debate, from the Municipal Socialist Party was great indignation towards the management of Local Government, whose irresponsibility has brought the council to a dead end, accumulating debt amounting to 18 million euros, which requires, for its payment, to continual tax increases cehegineros.

The PSOE regrets that this effort Cehegín citizens, have to be designed in large part to pay off the huge municipal debt rather than improving public services to productive investments, active employment policies, or social policies that could benefit many families.
