Valencia auctioning property to raise funds

The Valencia region´s financial ministry has announced that it will auction 12 properties from intestate inheritances, with an accumulated exit price of more than 1.2 million euro in the first auction held of this type since 2019.

The auction of the properties will take place on January 17 in the regional capital, Valencia. Once the sales have completed, it is expected that more auctions will also take place to offload more property and generate income.

The project of the Budget Law of the Generalitat for 2024, approved by the Council this Monday, affects the efficient management of public-owned buildings as a way to raise income.

New Alzheimer’s centre for Torrevieja

A new Alzheimer’s centre is to be built in Torrevieja, replacing the current facility located near the former railway station, and will be built on a plot near to the Quironsalud private hospital.

The new centre will be able to service more people than the existing facility, increasing from the current quota of around 50 people to between 80 and 100.

The new centre will also be able to provide more individual care and will have rooms specifically designed for both individual and group therapies.

Fire safety concerns in schools

Despite warnings from the regional government to hospitality venues before Halloween to ensure they comply with fire and safety regulations, in Orihuela, it has been reported that fire safety inspections have not been correctly carried out in a number of schools, in some cases since 2019.

A report was filed with the ombudsman to which the town hall has allegedly failed to respond, blames the delay on the lack of speed in the processing of contracting files carried out by the municipal administration.

More rubbish hikes

Although Benidorm is still maintaining the highest increase, Dolores is the latest town hall to announce a hike in the local taxes, specifically to cover waste collection costs.

The IBI property tax is set to increase by 50% in Dolores, and so the cost of waste collection will increase from 90 to 140 euro per year.

Guardamar del Segura and Pilar de la Horadada have also announced increases, so far.

Alfas in glass recycling boost

Thanks to the combined efforts of the residents and the waste management functions of the town hall, L’Alfás del Pi has collected more than 230,000 kilos of glass in the months of June to August, which represents an increase of 3.9% compared to the same period in 2022.

Thanks to the recycling efforts, environmental benefits equivalent to the CO2 processed by 181 trees over 100 years has been achieved.

The Ecovidrio initiative campaign known as the “Green Flag”, that this year has had the participation of 131 municipalities and more than 13,000 hospitality establishments, has seen more than 54,000 tons of glass collected during the three-month period.

Complaints channel for older people opened in Denia

Dénia town hall has announced the opening of a communication channel specifically so that the elder generation can report their complaints.

The plan will include periodic meetings where the residents are invited to speak directly with the Councillor for the Third Age, Marta Gascó.

The first meeting has been scheduled for Monday 6 November.
