The Regional Ministry of Tourism, Regeneration, Justice and Local Administration has granted 119,885 euros to the Tíjola Town Council to repair the damage caused by torrential rains to various roads in the municipality and supply networks, as part of a line of subsidies for localities affected by natural disasters with a total budget of 6 million euros.
The territorial delegate for Regeneration, Justice and Local Administration in Almería, José Luis Delgado, recently visited Tíjola, where he was able to visit, together with the mayor, José Juan Martínez, some of the most affected areas where the Town Council has had to undertake emergency works which will be paid for with the aid from the Junta.
Specifically, the recent torrential rains caused damage to the pavement of Calle Real Viejo, as well as in the area of Calle Calderón de la Barca where it is necessary to rebuild the sewage network and consolidate a slope.
During his visit, the delegate highlighted the support that the Regional Ministry led by Juan Marín provides to local entities in “exceptional situations so that they can undertake works and repairs that they would not be able to do alone with their own resources”.
“It is an example of the commitment to municipalism of this government, helping the local councils when they need it most”, said Delgado, who also highlighted the “agility in the resolution” of these subsidies so that the money is available in the municipal coffers as soon as possible.
In addition to Tíjola, other Almeria municipalities such as Vícar, Tabernas, Huécija and Paterna del Río have already received these resources.
