We finished the 2018 and started the 2019 as the year of municipal elections. Xàbia.com, following the line of giving opportunity for expression to all political parties with municipal representation, has spoken with Vicent Colomer, spokesman of Compromís and only councilor in the Javea Town Hall to take stock of what this legislature has been.
Colomer has stated that this legislature is based on an absolute socialist majority. «In his day, the mayor contacted me to take the council of sports, I thought it was a good invitation but I also thought that with so many people why he needed me », says the mayor.
Vicent has taken care of the sports area, «An important area», as stressed by the councilman, who added that at a sporting level «This term has been good but, due to budgetary cuts and the contracting law, many projects and actions will not be able to leave since the municipal machinery is slow. The
administrative impediments have slowed important projects such as the auditorium and the Puente de Triana ».
Colomer has referred to the pool project noting that "It has cost a lot to unblock it, since the regional government did not let agreements with the consellería, now it has been unlocked and with almost all security during this month the agreement will be signed and throughout the year the construction of the indoor pool will be tendered ».
«The relationship of Compromís with the PSOE has been like a marriage, there have been small differences that have been solved, but in important projects we have agreed», Colomer has reviewed and adds that "The fact that Compromís has conditioned many things with the socialist party. In this legislature have laid the foundations in sports for the next is the pool and the Freginal pavilion ».
In a matter of disagreement with the Socialists, the councilor of Compromís has made reference to the General Plan, "It's going slow, the allegations are still not answered. From Commitis claims were presented for 80.000 m2 destined for sports area, as we thought of a general plan to 25 years ago and have not yet received an answer. We need another football field, athletics track ... ».
Lack of sports infrastructure
Vicent Colomer agrees that Xàbia is deficient in terms of sports infrastructure, «Not only of this legislature, I think that since the birth of the General Plan of 1990 it was deficient and it was not thought about having spaces for infrastructures».
From the Department of Sports, Colomer points, "We have maintained the municipal facilities as well as possible and natural gas has been installed in all sports centers. The turf of the soccer field would have to be changed but for reasons of tender, the first company resigned and we hope that this quarter can be changed ».
On the march of an important part of the Tennis Academy Ferrer to La Nucia, the mayor has said that "It's sad, but the Tennis Club is private and for the purposes of the PGOU it can not be extended. La Nucia has the right land and on the other hand Xàbia does not have it ».
Candidacy for 2019 elections
Facing the elections next May, Vicent Colomer has been clear: «In case anyone had doubts, we will introduce ourselves. We will opt for primaries and now we are in a renovation process with young people interested in the project. At the end of January the whole process will go out, I will opt for the primaries and they will be the first of Compromís to the mayor of Xàbia ».
On a possible pact, Colomer has said that he has felt comfortable with the PSOE, "With the only party that we can agree on is with them since they have worked well and has as reference the pact of the Botanist. The two parties contribute, we add efforts and we are willing and willing to work ».
