• The regulations will monitor actions in the field of urban cleanliness and other issues such as control and possession of animals, gambling and begging
• The fines for depositing waste out of containers and public spaces are up to 1.500 euros, and are up to 18.000 infractions for animal abuse
The Redován Municipal Plenary, held online on Monday, June 8th, gave the green light to the 2020 budget, approved with twelve votes in favor and one abstention from the Municipal Corporation. During this plenary session, the project for the Municipal Ordinance for Neighborhood Cleaning and Coexistence was also approved, a norm that aims to “create a normative framework with which to promote civility in the public spaces of Redován, while establishing both norms of conduct and sanctions”, has informed the mayor, Nely Ruiz. As explained by the mayor, “it was a matter of preparing legislation to regulate those points that tend to be most conflictive in coexistence between residents of a municipality, such as issues of urban cleanliness or the keeping of pets” .
The ordinance also introduces a table of sanctions that, depending on the offenses and their severity, may reach up to 1,500 euros and, in the case of abuse and animal abandonment offenses, could exceed a 18,000 euro fine.
One of the points in which they have most wanted to influence has been the need to care for and keep clean “spaces that we all enjoy, such as the parks or the recreational area of La Ermita, and to deposit the different waste in the containers and designated places for it ”, indicated the councilor for Municipal Services, Ramón López. The mayor has insisted on the prohibition of leaving belongings or debris in public spaces, “a practice unfortunately very common in some areas of the municipality,” he added, that in this new regulation they are considered serious, and that may result in fines up to 1.500 euros.
Obligation of the owners to keep the lots clean
The City Council seeks to regulate, in the same way, the correct maintenance of the private plots in Redován, “eliminating excessive vegetation and ensuring their deratization and periodic disinfection, to avoid as far as possible situations that endanger the health of the neighbors ”, added López. In this regard, the City Council already started a land plot maintenance plan last March, sending “more than a hundred letters to owners in the urban area, in order for them to clean it to keep it in an optimal state of sanitation”, has indicated José Nájar, who has explained that with this ordinance “it is intended that the owners of the plots become aware of their obligation to keep the land in optimal health and hygiene conditions”, proceeding to sanction any owner who does not comply with this obligation civic. This avoids the City Council “having to send numerous notice notices year after year, which represents a great financial outlay and work, in addition to serious damage to neighboring neighbors with very neglected land,” he added.
Other conducts regulated in this new regulation will be the prohibition of performing stunts on urban furniture, the consumption of beverages on public roads, aggressive begging attitudes or the consumption of alcohol on public roads.
On the other hand, and in the section dedicated to domestic animals, the ordinance expressly prohibits abandonment and animal abuse, forcing them to be kept “in adequate hygiene, safety and care conditions, as well as their identification and inscription in the municipal census, and also respecting the regulations for possession of dangerous animals ”, reported Nájar. The regulations include the obligation to collect and clean the pets’s feces, another of the conflictive points in the coexistence between neighbors, to avoid staining the façades of the buildings.

The City Council of Redován will improve one of the main streets of the municipality, Pascual Martínez Avenue, with a performance in the sewerage network. These works will be carried out thanks to the Vertebra Plan of the Provincial Council of Alicante, an aid that will involve an investment of 1250,000 euros.

The works come after an existing problem due to the malfunctioning of the sanitation network. A section whose network is constituted by concrete pipe in mass. This is insufficient in periods of rain, which causes jumps in the registration covers, in addition to causing clogging in the pipes themselves. This causes serious problems and poses a danger to the residents of Redován, as well as to road traffic.
The sanitary pipe to be of concrete has a coefficient of high roughness that causes sedimentation in the interior of the tubes which causes the decrease of the section of the tubes and causes clogs that increase in times of rain. The works also intend to solve the same situation of hydraulic insufficiency that suffers the sewer collector that runs along the avenue.
The works that are contemplated are the cutting and demolition of the asphalt for the subsequent excavation and thus placing the new pipes. Once the network is ready, the entire area will be tarred.
“This work is about a first phase that will be completed with other phases to completely run the entire street Pascual Martinez,” concluded Ballester.
Redován 7/14/2017. Redován City Council wants to end the problems that arise daily in the potable water and sewerage network, and for that reason has initiated a procedure aimed at tendering a service now provided from the same Consistory, in precarious and without possibilities only of To realize the improvements that the neighbors of the locality demand. The mayor, Emilio Fernández, has appeared today along with a good part of his government, to explain how he wants to develop a process that wants to be “as transparent as the water that should come out of our faucets” and that also involves the investment Necessary to renew networks at all points where necessary.
Redován has 27.5 kilometers of sewage and 81.5 of potable water network “of which 3 are still of fiber cement,” said Fernández, who has pointed out that equally unbearable are the data that result from the studies carried out on The consumption of water in the locality. H indicated that only 52% of the water supplied by the Commonwealth of Taibilla Channels is used, while the remaining 48% is lost “in breaks, leaks and irregular shots”, something that is to be solved “because it is A water that we pay all the people of Rio Grande do Sul and we lose. ” Extrapolating these percentages to figures means that the annual economic losses are 247,444 euros, “so the solution must be put in place immediately”, said the mayor.
From the government team began to work in search of the solution in the past mandate, when it was commissioned to the public company dependent on the Diputación Proaguas Costa Blanca to carry out a planimetry of the entire local network. The needs studies concluded that Redován would require a large investment to provide the service in a standardized way. Last February, PW was awarded the “best consultancy in our country on water”, Fernández said, technical assistance to prepare the specifications and annexes of the subsequent valuation of offers in relation To the concession, and today the first commission has been held with the other municipal political groups where the technician in charge of the report has given all the details to the local political representatives.

The future, without tariff increases
Regarding the tender, the team of Redondo government has set several goals, such as the fact that it is the City Council itself that has control over the concession or that the execution period of the improvements required is in accordance with the needs of the network . “We want investments, as soon as possible, to improve the network, and especially not to raise rates, and we can guarantee that they will not.”

Throughout the duration of the contract, at least 2.5% of the variable fee will be invested to undertake service improvements. These conditions can be improved by companies.
Similarly, each year there must be an audit that will be commissioned by the Consistory but will be paid by the concessionaire. Searches for network leaks, sewer cleanings and rainwater networks will be carried out annually, among other things detailed by the Mayor of Rio Grande do Sul.
From the City Hall are expected to apply for aid to other administrations such as the County Council, within the collaboration established by law to provide public water service in municipalities with less than 20,000 inhabitants. “We consider that in this way we will achieve that the effectiveness of the network is close to normal, that we avoid the continuous breaks and above all, the water cuts that occur constantly,” said Emilio Fernández. “We want Redován to have a more modern and efficient service, that our neighbors and neighbors benefit from it and that they do not have to suffer the problems of an obsolete network for which now they must pay every year almost 250,000 euros,” he concluded.
