The spokesman of the Municipal Socialist Group, who insists that his presentation "is only to cover the file", declares that "they are born kidnapped because the large figures are to cover what it costs to raise the blind of the City Hall and to pay the large contracts"
He affirms that "the fiscal ordinances are not modified, so that the rates and taxes do not change, the progressivity of the collection is not advanced and, therefore, every Murcian and Murcians pays the same even if they do not have the same services"
The spokesman of the Municipal Socialist Group, José Antonio Serrano, has received this morning the Budgets for this year, 2019, and is "absolutely disappointed", since "we believe that it is a complete disrespect to Murcia and Murcia for the times and for the content ".
In this regard, he argues that "not only have we arrived very late, but precisely for the few months left to end the year, they are a paripé, they are presented to cover the file but they are not going to be fulfilled nor are they credible and there are items, well endowed economically, very ambiguous, which are at the discretion of the councilman of the Government on duty. "
In addition, the spokesman says that "these budgets are born kidnapped because the large figures are to cover what it costs to raise the blind of the City and pay large contracts."
Serrano, who warns that "for this trip there was no need for suitcases", states that "the government team should not waste time for the citizens of this municipality with Budgets that will be useless and, in case Run something will be like in 2018, investments that have been carried over from previous years. This is not serious. "
And it is that the investments, he continues, "are a ball that is increasing from one year to another because everything that is planned is never executed", and in these Budgets 2019 "we have already verified how the cost for repairs in schools falls, apparently because they must all be impeccable and with the latest generation electrical installations so that they can support air conditioning and digital whiteboards, and the social IBI, which we approved from the PSOE, disappears to help families with economic difficulties ".
To this we must add that the government team "has become customary not to modify the tax ordinances in plenary, so that rates and taxes do not change, progress is not made in the progressiveness of collection and, therefore, every Murcian and Murcia pays the same yet not having the same services. "
"For the only thing that all the neighbors of the municipality are equal to pay, there if we are equated, now for investments, no," he says.
As an example, he explains that each Murcia contributes â‚¬ 644 in taxes and fees, "now we have to ask ourselves if a family of four, who will pay a total of â‚¬ 2,576, receives the same services wherever they live"
Likewise, the socialist spokesman points out that "one of the great sources of income is fines, there everything that is foreseen in the Budgets is collected, but then we observe that although the income is all, but it is not fulfilled as promised and Therefore, we find that, for example, in 2018, there is a difference of â‚¬ 59M between income and expenses. The Government team has turned the City Council into an infallible charging machine. "
Also, he observes, "a Department for Economic Promotion is created and, nevertheless, we are disappointed again, because 7,000 euros of investment are consigned" and adds that, "being one of the great concerns of citizens, we do not understand how it can encourage the creation of jobs with that amount. "
"Yes, in propaganda we spend it all, now in sports facilities there is also a gap because while the centers of La Flota, Cabezo de Torres, Santo Ángel and El Carmen represent an expense of â‚¬ 3.6M, the investments for the rest of Sports centers and tracks of the municipality will be â‚¬ 1.2M, "he says.
For all this, Serrano says that "this year will be blank, we will not observe any progress or transformation in the municipality and, therefore, the Socialist Municipal Group will not participate in these Budgets."
