- The City Council produces three videos showing that all kinds of products and services can be accessed without having to travel.
In Redován I have everything’ is the slogan of the campaign launched by the Redován Town Council to boost consumption in the municipality and promote the local economy. “It is very important that after everything we have been through, first the Dana, then the pandemic, and the economic crisis in which we find ourselves, caused by both disasters, the citizens of Redován take into account that our town has a wide range of products and services, and as the video says, if they don’t have it, they bring it to you without having to look for it outside”, says the mayoress, Nely Ruiz.
This campaign consists of three videos. The first has already been broadcast on different municipal communication channels and is related to trade. The second, related to the customs of Redovan and focused on the hotel and catering industry, has just been circulated through various social networks. And the third, which will arrive at the end of the year, will be dedicated to traditions, focusing on the typical Redovan Christmas sweets that are famous beyond the borders of the municipality. In all cases the videos have been produced with the support of the Costa Blanca Tourist Board of the Alicante Provincial Council “and the aim is to promote our local products, which are many and of high quality, because we often go out to look for things that we can find in our shops,” said the mayor of Commerce and Markets, Maite Martinez.
Martínez recalled that the Town Council, within its means, has put in place “all the economic aid that has been made available to us from higher institutions, but we also felt that it was necessary to generate a feeling of belonging to a group among the people of Redovan, a group of which each of us who live here forms part and in which we must help each other”. For her part, the councillor for the hotel and catering industry, Clara Ezcurra, considered that this sector “which has suffered above all from the closures and curfews, has the support of the Town Council in everything we can do”. That is why the hotel and catering industry, as part of our customs, is also a protagonist in this campaign.
Ezcurra has encouraged consumption in bars and restaurants in Redován, and recalled that one of the support measures that has been adopted in the coming months has been the pedestrianisation of streets and squares to encourage consumption in these establishments. The aim of the campaign is to raise awareness of both the product and the people who struggle every day to open their businesses in Redován. “The videos are dynamic, as is the dynamic society of Redovan, and with them we also want to send out a message of hope, because together we are going to get out of this crisis as we have got out of previous ones,” concluded the mayoress.

In second place are the aid approved last Friday by the Generalitat Valenciana, the most urgent that of the calls, which affects the damages of first necessity in homes and that must be processed before October 11. In this case “up to 4,500 euros can be obtained, although as soon as it is processed, the Generalitat directly gives 1,500 euros,” said Adrián Ballester. The mayor has commented that to request them you must provide the housing data, an account number with a receipt that shows that you are the owner, as well as the documentation that proves the property (deed, IBI taxes, simple registration note, etc. ), or the contract in the case of rentals.
“For the moment, this aid can be processed for essential goods, although they cannot be requested for vehicles, but we will be informing about how to request them once they are approved, also enabling another line for people who have lost their entire home, to which we will inform personally, ”he said. Ballester has also specified that in third place are the State aids, enabled after the Council of Ministers declared the catastrophic zone. “In this regard, you can also request, through the Civil Protection website, housing assistance and furniture purchase.” In his case there are two months that began to count last Saturday to request them.
With these measures, it is intended to simplify the procedures for the residents of the municipality to the maximum, “and that is why we have launched this personalized attention by appointment,” said the mayor, who has urged the people affected to request this attention if needed “because, especially in the case of damage to homes, it is urgently processed and the deadline ends on October 11”.

Specifically, cleaning work on ravines, rural roads and recreational area of La Ermita, and the subsidy requested to the SEPE has a budget of 62,143.20 euros.

The councilor added that with this pre-selection the candidates will be evaluated for the final selection, “a process of which the union representatives in the Town Hall are part”.
The Local Police of Redován will already be able to carry out alcohol tests with reliable results thanks to the incorporation of a breathalyzer that the City Council of Redova has acquired with an investment of 7,000 euros that was provided for in the municipal budget.
This device, of last generation, has been delivered to the police by the mayor, Emilio Fernandez, and the councilman of Public Safety, Ramon Lopez, who has pointed out that until now “it was counted on a breathalyzer that gave an orientative result, although now as we have a modern, and above all approved based on the requirements of the European Union, you can know the exact blood alcohol level presented by people who are submitted to the tests.
The breathalyzer (model Dräger Alcotest 7510ES) will be added to the equipment already available to the Local Police to carry out its maintenance work in Redován. At the beginning of this year two defibrillators were incorporated and installed in police vehicles to act in case of emergency, as López Escarabajal recalled.
With respect to the ethylometer, it will be used both in the routine controls that are carried out to verify, for example, that the vehicles circulate with the documentation in order or that those who drive them do not do it under the effects of drugs and alcohol, “as in specific blood alcohol controls that are put in place as of now since we already have the necessary equipment to be able to carry them out with all the guarantees, “the councilor concluded.
