The Redován Town Council has incorporated, as it does every summer, 18 agricultural labourers into the municipal workforce, who will be dedicated to the maintenance and cleaning of ravines, rural roads, the recreational area of La Ermita and streets and squares in the municipality, especially in the rural districts of El Rincón and San Carlos. These contracts are carried out on the basis of the SEPE-Local Councils Agreement for Depressed Rural Areas through a grant of 86,562 euros to cover salary costs.

The Councillor for Employment, Maite Martínez, explained that the labourers will work for 70 real days and that they will mainly be clearing gullies, collecting waste and clearing brush, stones and branches “in order to improve the rural environment of our rural roads, as well as cleaning and maintaining the recreational area of La Ermita, the street Polideportivo Los Pasos, public squares and various areas of the districts of San Carlos and El Rincón that require this type of action”.

Martínez added that “we also favour the creation of jobs and the training of the people involved, while improving our environment with work that, for example, allows us to keep the ravines clean in the event of possible flooding, especially during the autumn”.
