The Redován City Council, through the Employment Department, has hired 19 agricultural laborers to carry out maintenance and cleaning of rural roads, ravines, recreational areas such as La Ermita or the town squares. This hiring is framed within a subsidy that the Consistory has received from the Ministry of Labor and Social Economy.
The aid is 73,348 euros and the work has started this week and will take place over three months. The 19 hired laborers, preferably eventual farmers, were enrolled at the Orihuela Employment Center.
Specifically, the tasks to be carried out consist of cleaning and conditioning areas that need special care, such as green areas or municipal public roads, as well as some rural roads or ravines that require clearing tasks to avoid fire risk during the summer season. As a novelty, this year maintenance tasks will be carried out in squares, urban areas and green areas of the municipality that were greatly affected as a result of the DANA of September 2019.
The Councilor for Employment, Maite Martínez, explained that “this is very important work for the municipality since, on the one hand, we clean up the areas that have been affected by DANA and others that need maintenance, and, on the other hand, we decreased seasonal unemployment in a sector such as agriculture, since most of these workers are discontinuous permanent workers ”.
The Redován City Council requests citizen collaboration to keep the municipality clean. “It is important that all citizens are aware of the cleaning and maintenance of our town, so we want to influence the collaboration of all so that squares, streets, etc., are in the best conditions,” said the councilor.
