Sebastián Martín, demands the renewal of an agreement that was in force for a decade and expired in 2018, for which the municipality received one million euros a year in public works for host the island landfill facilities. Otherwise, it announces that it will work to close the now named Environmental Complex.
The island councilor for Sustainable Development and the Fight against Climate Change, Javier Rodríguez, considers the ruler’s words “foolish”, who asks to work and stop blocking the municipality. It reminds you that your municipal government has not responded to the request for a building license that a company made in December 2019 to invest 40 million euros in the Environmental Complex.
“Javier Rodríguez’s management with Arico has been disastrous and immature”
For Sebastián Martín, Rodríguez Medina’s words «represent a final point with Arico. You have lost control of the situation. A politician cannot and should not speak in such a harmful way to anyone, much less to a mayor who only demands the fulfillment of a right acquired many years ago. In the opinion of the president of the Ariquera Municipal Corporation, “Rodríguez Medina has no authority or credit. His management with Arico has been disastrous and immature and hence his frustration and his ways.
The island government rules out the renewal of the agreement that Arico demands based on a technical report. It determines that the legislation prohibits the payment of two subsidies for the same concept to the same beneficiary. “If Rodríguez Medina does not know how to carry out the compensation agreement, step aside and leave it in the hands of the president and if Martín does not know either, ask previous governments that they were capable of doing it.” And he adds: “In case they don’t want to for political reasons, be brave and say so, but don’t expect our submission for an answer.”
“If you do not know how to carry out the agreement, leave it in the hands of the president”
Sebastián Martín is grateful for “the support of the opposition in the Cabildo, who are the majority and can help us win this battle. Also of the mayors of our environment ». He concludes with a message addressed to the PSOE: “Either they give us the agreement or they will be portrayed in the history of Arico as the political party that first buried us in garbage and then robbed us of our right to just compensation.”
