The municipal socialist group of Javea Town Hall presented yesterday in the ordinary plenary session of the month of October a motion in which it proposed the extension of the fiscal measures that are currently in force that support the domestic economy and the small businesses of the population in the face of the generalized inflation that is taking place. lives.
The socialists, in the words of the councilor Ximo Segarra, referred to the suspension of the rate for garbage, the municipal school and opening licenses, in addition to keeping the IBI and the price of water frozen as support for families, self-employed workers and SMEs in the face of the rise in prices of basic products and materials. cousins.
Segarra stated that continuing with the suspension of rates was viable because the municipal coffers had more than 40 million from the banks and 5,4 million in surplus.
But this proposal did not have the support of the government team formed by PP, VOX and Ciudadanos por Jávea, who indicated that they did not see the urgency of voting on the motion. Given this argument, the PSOE explained that the urgency was that the law regulating local finances determines that any modification of rates or taxes must be definitively approved by mid-November so that it can come into force in January.
Likewise, the Councilor for Finance, Teresa Legay, stated that the numbers are being reviewed to determine the actions to be taken, "but things are in a hurry." Legay pointed out that the IBI will be maintained, as requested by the socialists in the motion, "but for now we cannot make a decision regarding the rest of the taxes since the City Council's expenses have increased."
Ultimately, the motion did not move forward and was not debated.
