The spokesman of the Municipal Socialist Group of Ojós, Francisco J. Avilés Garro denounces the breach of the commitments acquired by both the regional and municipal government after three years have elapsed since the announcement of invesión in the area affected by landslides in the municipality of Ojós .
It should not surprise anyone, but it can not be understood that a Mayor like Ojós fails to comply with the agreements and, therefore, full mandates even more so when he has not had any objections in the press announcing his solution.
Since April 12, 2016, three years ago, the Ministry of Water, Agriculture and Environment, through the Directorate General of Rural Development and Forestry, announced that it was going to perform the work of protection against rockfalls in Ojós after the visit made by the Director General of Rural Development and Forestry, Federico García Izquierdo, to the area next to the Mayor, Pablo Melgarejo has not had more news, which is a problem for neighbors who daily have to face the possibility that their homes are at risk and even their own physical integrity.
According to the information published in La Verdad, the planned works would consist of the placement of dynamic barriers of anti-detachment meshes anchored to special high-strength steel profiles, with a height of up to 6 meters, which retain the rocks that could roll downhill.
The budget for these works was estimated at 557,000 euros, co-financed by the Autonomous Community and the European Feader funds, but we have not had the great fortune that it is executed and we do not know what happened to the money of European origin.
It is fair to transfer the discomfort of the people affected by the treatment offered by the Local and Autonomic Governments of the Popular Party that have treated the residents of Ojós in a discriminatory way with respect to other municipalities that had a similar problem such as case of Blanca or Uluea.
This only allows us to conclude that Ojós does not deserve to have a mayor who does not want his people and, unfortunately, the PP has only shown signs of it, so we do not have high hopes that Jose Emilio Palazón, candidate of the PP to the municipal elections and Mr. Melgarejo's trusted man can represent the citizenship of Ojós as he deserves.
