The Diputación de Valladolid approves to request a loan of 14 million euros for the Provincial Plans of 2011

The Plenary Diputación de Valladolid has approved this Friday, with the majority of the votes of the Provincial Popular Group, a file for a credit operation of 14 million euros in order to maintain the commitments of multi-year expenses acquired by the Institution and the levels of investment in the municipalities through the Provincial Plans of 2011.  

The Plenary Diputación de Valladolid has approved this Friday, with the majority of the votes of the Provincial Popular Group, a file for a credit operation of 14 million euros in order to maintain the commitments of multi-year expenses acquired by the Institution and the levels of investment in the municipalities through the Provincial Plans of 2011.

Specifically, included as an urgent matter on the agenda after yesterday’s approval at the last minute in the Finance Committee, the objective is to request a loan to finance next year’s investments since, as a result of the entry into force of the Royal Decree by which measures are adopted to reduce the public deficit, local entities “can not go to public or private credit” in 2011- Citeslab Amont78.

Thus, faced with the “impossibility” of going to debt next year, the County Council resorts to borrowing this year to, thus, “maintain the commitments” of multi-year expenditures acquired by the Institution.

Also, the Plenary, through a motion submitted jointly by all groups, has decided to urge the Government of Spain to abolish the generic prohibition of indebtedness of local entities for the year 2011 and put a number of conditions in this regard.

In this way, the local entities commit themselves to contribute to the reduction of the public deficit and to the control of the growth of the debt. In addition, the motion assumes that these administrations “will not be able to initiate new investments” in 2011 financed with indebtedness although “they will be able to continue financing with this resource the execution of the contracts, including the multi-year ones, that would have been awarded” before the entry into force of the decree.

On the other hand, the Plenary has also approved a proposal presented by the Popular Provincial Group to request the Board to eliminate the distance limitation of 25 meters for the implementation of hospitality activities with respect to other premises.

Thus, the ‘popular’ deputy Artemio Dominguez has defended the proposal since in Castile and Leon “if an entrepreneur wants to open a bar is required a minimum distance despite the state law says that it should not apply.”

Justified distance

 

In this regard, has qualified that cannot forget “the discomfort that any activity can create” so the smallest distance “must be justified.” In fact, in most towns, in his opinion, “there are certain places where you can put these activities.”

“It is time to support the young man who opens a hotel business,” he continued.

On the other hand, the socialist deputy Félix Velasco Gómez has indicated that it is the Cortes of Castilla y León “those that must modify the laws” so that “it is not acceptable” that the provincial institution “enters into concrete aspects of legislation”.

The non-attached deputy, Ana Vázquez, has stressed that this regulation, implemented in principle to reduce alcohol consumption, “has nothing to do with prevention” in this type of drinks because “it does not paralyze another reality” how is “the bottle”.

Finally, the spokesman of the Provincial Group of the United Left-The Greens, Salvador Arpa de la Fuente, has indicated that maintaining this regulation “does not violate the freedom of service establishments.” “The people of the big cities appreciated this norm, why do we have to change it now?” He added.

Environment Consortium

Likewise, the Plenary has also approved, with the votes in favor of all the deputies except for Ana Vázquez, the agreements of the Extraordinary Commission of Territorial Action by which the Provincial Consortium of the Environment and its statutes are constituted.

The future Consortium will initially assume the provision of services that are currently carried out from the Provincial Council, with the “soon” provision also for the service of collecting vegetable oil in the villages.

The PSOE has valued the creation of the Consortium although it has regretted that “it has not been more ambitious in its implementation” so that it would have “taken advantage of this moment to expand the services that are going to be provided”.

On the other hand, the Provincial Socialist Group has presented a proposal, rejected with the votes of the PP, to urge the Board to maintain and execute the investments of its competence in matters of infrastructure committed in the province.

Thus, the socialist spokesman, Juan Jose Zancada, has criticized that Valladolid is the province that has received “less investment per inhabitant” in the last ten years. “Is it worth more a Leonese or a Burgalese than a Valladolid?” He asked himself.

In this regard, has asserted that the PSOE “wants to know the degree of commitment” of the president of the Junta de Castilla y Leon, Juan Vicente Herrera, with the province of Valladolid since “is marginalized and takes the hair” to Valladolid.

Ana Vázquez has stressed that “the forgotten commitments are made evident” in Valladolid so the Junta “should take things seriously” while Arpa de la Fuente has been “contrary to the cut in public investment” to reduce the deficit.

“black white minister”

On the other hand, the deputy of Territorial Action, Luis Minguela, has assured that the real problem is “diverting attention” from the actions of the “black White minister”, in reference to the head of the Ministry of Public Works, José Blanco.

“With the motion intend to divert attention to the ocular shame of the Government of Spain and the black minister Blanco. If there are no investments from the Government of Spain is not about canceling,” he continued.

On the other hand, the socialist deputy Juan José Tomás-Biosca Pérez has defended another proposal, also rejected by the Popular Party, to “require the Sacyl” maintenance of the number of troops during the holiday period in the health centers of the Community.

Thus, Tomás-Biosca has criticized the management of the regional government in health matters “leaves much to be desired” since Sacyl “does have money to invest in private health that detracts from the public.”

Thus, the spokesman of the Popular Provincial Group, Jesús García Galván, has indicated that the proposal “is playing to create social alarm” because it seems that Castilla y León is “without health coverage” and “that is not true at all”.

“The care coverage in summer is maintained, Castilla y León is the Community with the highest ratio of primary care physicians per number of inhabitants,” he said.

Finally, the Provincial Group of United Left-The Greens has presented a new proposal, also denied, to reject the acquisition of industrial land by the Diputación in the industrial estate ‘Canal de Castilla’.

The proposal has only had the favorable votes of IU and Ana Vázquez since, as Juan José Zancada (PSOE) said “what affects the province interests” the council, which should “try to know the problems and contribute to the solution. “

Also, the first vice president of the Provincial Council, Alfonso Centeno Trigos, recalled that “there is no agreement to date but neither should we close doors” regarding the possibility that the provincial institution, through its Development Society ( Sodeva), take charge of some of the land of the ‘Canal de Castilla’ macro polygon, at the request of the Board.
