COUNCILLOR FOR THE COAST CRITICISED FOR WASTING MONEY
Martina Scheurer, Councillor for the Coast, was criticised severely for wasting money on renovating an avenue leading to the beach in La Zenia. This work, consisting mainly of widening the pavements, is necessary but at the beginning of the summer she authorised works which would have cost some €30,000 for temporary improvements for parking cars in the same street. Now this work is being undone to allow the new renovation project to be executed. No explanation was given as to why the work carried out at the beginning of the summer was necessary when for years the same parking problems had been tolerated. Her explanation that the earlier works were carried out cost-free because they were done by the maintenance team which works on the coast, is completely unconvincing. €30,000 worth of work to repair potholes and pavements in other parts of Orihuela Costa would have been of great benefit to many people who now see waste being committed before their eyes.
