The territorial delegate informs the mayor of the award of this grant.

The territorial delegate of Regeneration, Justice and Local Administration of the Junta in Almería, José Luis Delgado, has informed the Mayor of Macael, Raúl Martínez, of the awarding by the Regional Ministry of subsidies for a total amount of 120,000 euros to alleviate the damage caused by the recent torrential rains in public infrastructures of the municipality.

This aid is part of the line called for local authorities affected by natural disasters. The applications are currently being resolved and Macael is one of the municipalities in Almeria that have been granted the funds requested to repair the paving of several streets that have collapsed due to the rains and flooding, as well as retaining walls.

Specifically, the Consistory will soon receive three of the four grants requested, amounting to 48,092.66, 47,740 and 13,800 euros respectively, while a fourth of 10,367.28 euros is pending audit by the Intervention.

As the councillor explained to the delegate during a recent visit to the municipality to see the damage, thanks to this aid, roads such as those in Antigua Street and a section of the Tahal road will be repaired, as well as action to prevent the risk of landslides.

The torrential rains caused landslides in the municipality of Macael which forced the road to be cut.
For Delgado, “this aid is an example of the Junta de Andalucía’s commitment to municipalism, by collaborating with the town councils to deal with unexpected expenses in the face of extraordinary situations that they would not be able to deal with with their limited budgets”.

“Institutional cooperation always benefits the residents as it allows local entities to maintain and improve infrastructures and public services, especially in rural areas,” he said.

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

He also recalled that in the legislature that is now ending, the PATRICA (Participation in the Taxes of the Autonomous Community), which had been frozen since 2014, has been increased annually, reaching 580 million this year (366,842.41 euros corresponding to Macael). In addition, the Law of Unconditional Financing of Local Autonomous Entities (ELA) such as Fuente Victoria has been approved, a historical demand of these to receive funds directly without the mediation of the parent municipality.
