In addition to warning that «we will fight to maintain the compensation we have been receiving for hosting the PIRS, as it is the least that our municipality deserves to receive the garbage from the entire island, “the also councilor for the Environment was” annoyed “by the lack of consideration he perceives in the attitude of the island government. “Despite meeting to negotiate and outline the document of the new agreement with the Minister of Sustainable Development, Javier Rodríguez Medina, at no time did he contact this municipal government to give us explanations or tell us about the decision they reached,” explains Martínez.
In that sense, the councilor refers to the fact that the Arico City Council learned of the Cabildo’s refusal to reissue this agreement for the response that the insular councilor of the area He offered to the Plenary a question asked by Valentín González, counselor of the Popular Group. This is defined by the mayor of the Environment as a lack of institutional loyalty between administrations. “We will no longer tolerate disrespect for neighbors, the municipality and the local government,” added the second deputy mayor.
In this sense, Andrés Martínez recalls that «it was the PSOE the party that implanted the landfill in AricoIt is the PSOE that wants to leave us without compensation and, worst of all, without showing up and without sitting down with the government group to try to find some kind of consensus or solution. The popular mayor wonders what has happened and what has changed so that an agreement that was possible until 2018 cannot be reissued. “If anyone has suffered with waste management, it is Arico and no one is going to give us lessons about the island plant. We will be up in arms demanding improvements that Arico well deserves, “he insists.
Martínez Morales anticipates that “we will continue fighting so that the municipality receives fair compensation.” He claims that, at least, it is for the amount he received until 2018. “We will fight with our councilors in the Cabildo, because we are clear that whoever does not really believe and does not fight for these compensations is because he does not want or hurt Arico”, concluded.
“If anyone has suffered with waste management, it is Arico and no one is going to give us lessons about the island plant. We will be on the warpath demanding improvements that Arico well deserves »
The island government justified the refusal to renew the agreement previously approved by the Plenary of the Cabildo arguing that the mandatory technical report was not favorable to it.
