Recently named as the Councillor for Tourism and Beaches for San Javier Council, Antonio Martínez Torrecillas confirms to us that he will also be the local mayor for the La Manga ward. Torrecillas has been appointed in the role by new overall San Javier Mayor Juan Martinez Pastor, in order to reorganize and execute local management in that part of the borough. Such has been the confidence delegated to the new ward mayor that “Anything and everything to do with La Manga will go through me”, he indicated.The news may prove appealing for local residents as the ward will be covered by a councillor with larger powers of decision and execution; in this sense we can expect a more robust and active administration.
Antonio Martínez explains that they have begun by, “Restructuring council staff in La Manga, searching for an optimization of the workload allowing for better productivity in light of the scarce economic resources we are currently faced with”. Martinez assures that the changes will begin to be noticed in the medium term and that the low amount in the council coffers will rule out projecting for large scale investments in the area over the next twelve months.
The issue of the seaweed is one that they have wanted to address and an important economic effort is being made to remove the accumulated mounds of sea grass. Martínez confirms that the policy of how the Posidonia sea algae are dealt with will change, “So as not to have problems in forthcoming summers”, he states.
In regards to other topics, Martinez assures that the Puente del Estacio’s maintenance contract will not be left unattended for a single day and that there are plans to clean up the rubbish disposal hotspots where the lack of collection and accumulation has produced the most grime.
