Redován City Council opens from tomorrow, Tuesday, September 24, an information and processing office to aid with paperwork to those affected by the floods. Said office will work in the afternoon, from 16.30 to 19.30, during the next two weeks. The spokesman of the government team and Councilor for Emergencies, Adrián Ballester, and the mayor, Nely Ruiz, today announced the start-up of facilities that will be attended by eight municipal officials and that will assist people who previously request an appointment by calling City Hall, at 96 675 40 25.

Ballester has explained the three types of aid to which those who have suffered some type of damage to their properties can resort. On the one hand those of the Insurance Compensation Consortium, which covers those people and goods (homes and vehicles) that have insurance. 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”.
