Cartagena City Council to invest 250,000 euros in the villages of the Mar Menor to respond to neighbourhood demands

Cartagena to invest 250,000 euros in the Mar Menor neighbourhood proposals

With a budget of 250,000 euros, the Cartagena City Council will address the various proposals that the residents of the coastal towns of the Mar Menor sent to the Cartagena consistory. Among the neighbourhood initiatives are the removal of biomass and maintenance work on the coastline, or the project to remove sludge and dry land, which will soon be put out to tender, once the regional funding has been obtained, according to municipal sources in a press release.

The mayoress of Cartagena, Noelia Arroyo, has held a meeting with the residents of Mar Menor Sur, to follow up on the pending issues and the upcoming actions to be developed and included in the municipal budgets, such as the Special Plan for the Mar Menor which includes 250,000 euros of investment in the coastal towns.

These committed actions are in addition to a shock plan in the coastal towns, aimed at improving cleanliness, gardens, lighting and improving public spaces. In total, the municipal budgets will pay special attention to the problems of the Mar Menor, to which almost 1.5 million euros will be allocated.

Arroyo wanted to hold a meeting with neighbourhood representatives in order to speed up the projects planned for these coastal towns, which have been working for some time in the Mar Menor Municipal Commission, so that they receive the necessary impetus for the high season.

In addition, Arroyo, meeting with representatives of Los Urrutias, El Carmolí, Punta Brava, Estrella de Mar and Los Nietos, has informed them of the entry into operation of the 200,000 euro contract of the company STV Gestión, which until the end of June will be responsible for the removal of biomass accumulated on the beaches of the southern part of the Mar Menor, as well as informing them of the current situation of the large biomass removal contract, worth 3.7 million euros, which the Town Hall has put out to tender.

In this regard, the Mayoress stressed the importance of having a single voice in the Mar Menor and working together with the neighbourhood organisations to monitor the actions that depend on both the local, regional and national administration, in order to unblock the demands of the neighbours.

He was also able to greet the 16 SEF employees who will work on these tasks for six months, as well as on the maintenance of gardens in these coastal towns.

The meeting was held in Los Urrutias, where the mayor wanted to establish a first contact with the new president of the Neighbourhood Association, Rosell García, to whom she wished luck and success in making decisions.
