The Plenum of the City Council special meeting yesterday approved the budget for this year 2012.
These budgets approved get now instead of later this year as was done previously, characterized by a clear, determined by the government team, not only maintain but enhance the areas of Social Policy, Security, Education and Culture front cuts that are occurring from other administrations in these areas.
The Mayor of Mazarron, Ginés Campillo, called the budget of 2012 for "realistic and committed citizens Mazarrón" in addition to "adapt to the Matching Payment to Providers who have already received approval from the Ministry of Finance and Public Administration ".
This year the budget envisages an expenditure of nearly 25.9 million euros, 2.5 million less than last year, "which are below the revenue side which provides a collection of 28.9 million euros, bringing down the deficit of the municipal coffers by 3 million euros "
These 3 million surplus has enabled to meet the Plan Provider Payment and the payment of 2.2 million euros to cover "to various expenses that were made in previous years and were not applied to their respective budgets" for mismanagement of the previous government team of Francisco Blaya.
There is also the fact that you have to cover a total of 580,000 euros and will not come from the hand of the Autonomous Community and the Government has decided to team face "to maintain the quality of various public services that benefit the citizens. "
But not only public services are supported by these budgets but the areas of Social Policy, Security, Education and Culture are also benefited by receiving 290,000 euros, 36,815 euros, 246,000 euros and 27,000 euros respectively this year.
"Given the cuts that are taking place other administrations in these areas we decided to support them as a clear commitment to support and help each and every single citizen of the municipality," he said Ginés Campillo.
This increase in these items would not be possible if he had not undertaken an adjustment in other areas such as Protocol, which reduces spending by 70%, payments to councilors, down 36%, staff costs as a whole , down EUR 1,631,000 gross equivalent to 10.8% compared to last year, and decreased expenses and liabilities by 57% which means a saving of 990,000 euros.
However, these cuts "will not lead to a decline in the provision of services by the consistory and, more importantly, they will keep all jobs in the City".
Finally, another aspect that we have tried to maintain the investment in the municipality intended primarily to replenishment of basic infrastructure and operational performance of services.
A total of 1,635,000 budgeted 575,000 euros of which will go towards bills to cover the above corporation, remaining for this year 1,060,000 euros.
This figure increases to 456,000 euros in the budget approved last year.
