The Town Halls of Alguazas and Molina de Segura, represented by Blas Ángel Ruipérez (Mayor) and Fuensanta Martínez (Councilor of Public Road) respectively, met on Thursday, February 13 with the president of CHS, Mario Urrea, to discuss various issues related to the damages caused by the DANA of last September in the two municipalities.
One of the main issues discussed has been the repair of the El Paraje bridge, which connects both municipalities.
The president of CHS, Mario Urrea, expressed the impossibility of this body assuming the cost of repairing this infrastructure, so it will be the two municipalities who face the expenses generated in terms of this action.
The representatives of the two consistories expressed their intention to carry out the legal actions they deem appropriate to purify the patrimonial responsibility of CHS regarding the damage caused to the bridge.
The Mayor of Alguazas, in addition, expressed his deepest discomfort before "the irresponsibility of CHS for the non-repair of the damaged specks in the Segura River as a result of the DANA, after almost six months have passed."
The Alderman of Alguaceo believes that there were indications to think that "during the DANA, CHS used the Alguayan village of El Paraje and the Molinense neighborhood of Santa Rita as floodplains to prevent water from causing major damage in the city of Murcia; we understand that for actions such as the withdrawal of means to extract the reeds of the bridge, the closure of the Los Rodeos dam and, even today, the non-repair of motorcycles, which makes us think that we are still considered as a flood plain by of CHS. "
The mayor of Alguazas wanted to emphasize that only after the mediation of Diego Conesa, spokesman of the socialist parliamentary group in the Regional Assembly, the cane withdrawal machines returned to perform their work immediately in the days of the DANA.
"Both the City Council and the residents of El Paraje have been very cautious and patient with the times of the administration, but, almost six months later, we cannot tolerate further delays in actions that we consider essential," Ruipérez concludes.
Next week, indicates the first mayor of Alguaceño, a new special commission of the DANA will be convened to inform its members about the issues that were discussed in this meeting with CHS and contemplate the options to be taken into account in this matter.
