José Luis Delgado, visited the various works that need to be repaired in the municipality.

The acting territorial delegate for Regeneration, Justice and Local Administration of the Junta in Almería, José Luis Delgado, has informed the mayoress of Laroya, Dolores Moreno, of the granting of 120,000 euros to the town council to repair public infrastructures damaged by the recent torrential rains, within the framework of the subsidies announced this year by the regional ministry for municipalities affected by natural disasters.

Delgado explained that part of these resources, around 39,000 euros, will soon reach the municipal coffers, while the rest of the subsidy is currently being processed.

The Laroya Town Council requested this aid to repair several roads and accesses to the town centre damaged by the rains, as well as to build a retaining structure in a particularly vulnerable area of the Almeria town.

The acting territorial delegate highlighted “the importance of the Junta de Andalucía’s collaboration with local entities in the face of unforeseen situations that require extraordinary actions which, with their own resources, they would not be able to undertake, given the financing problems suffered by municipalities, especially the smaller ones.

In this regard, Delgado highlighted the work of the Regional Ministry of Local Administration through the different lines of aid implemented in the last three and a half years, both extraordinary aid in situations such as COVID or meteorological phenomena, and the ordinary calls for proposals that have been renewed to, for example, give priority to municipalities with depopulation problems.

He also recalled that the PATRICA (Participation in the Taxes of the Autonomous Community), which had been frozen since 2014, has been increased annually in the legislature that is now coming to an end, reaching 580 million this year (150,439.29 euros corresponding to Laroya). In addition, the Law of Unconditional Financing of Local Autonomous Entities (ELA) has been approved, a historical demand of these to receive funds directly without the mediation of the parent municipality.
