The Valencian formation of Compromís Xàbia has issued a statement on the state of the Arenal Beach and the management of this situation:
La Arenal Beach It is closed in the middle of the high season and both the health of bathers and the reputation of Jávea as a tourist destination have been put in danger. Until the crisis exploded in its face with all its harshness, the local government, embodied in this case by Mr. Chulvi and Mr. Miragall, have complied with their usual manual of non-crisis management: denial of the problem, accuse of being alarmist and/or insult the representatives of the opposition and citizens who denounce it, and finally try to pass the ball and blame other Administrations, without assuming any responsibility or making any decision in the process, until external circumstances oblige.
The Arenal crisis is one more example of a paralyzed government, made up of people who in many cases have been collecting public salaries for more than 10 years and who act as if the problems were not their responsibility and they had no room for manoeuvre.
If we review most of the problems of the Town hall of today -the paralyzed works, the personnel problems, the relationship with cultural and sports entities, the control of tourist flows...- the pattern is similar, a scenario of paralysis and a speech from the government in which it is always the fault of someone else, never yours.
At Compromís we believe that it is typical of adults to assume responsibilities, even when things go wrong, and it is difficult to understand because people who claim that they have no room for maneuver or can act in
nothing is still part of a government: in one way or another they are being dishonest with the citizens they claim to represent.
As for the EPSAR, depending on the Generalitat, despite claiming to have nothing to do with this incident, at Compromís we consider its management more than improvable: both due to the fact that as of July 27 the outfall is still not repaired and because in In recent years, no effort has been made, either by them or by the City Council, to complete the water purification cycle that would avoid pouring sewage into the sea and at the same time allow it to be reused for irrigation or other uses with sustainability criteria.
Unlike others, who live and change their minds at the touch of the one who sends them from Madrid or Valencia, we
we will always put the interests of our people ahead of those of any party.
