Lorca relieves his debt at a daily rate of 17,260.27 euros and gets the best data of the last 17 years, with a cut of more than 4 million in the last 6 months (13/06/2018)

The total figure goes from 105 million to 41.4, improving the ordinary currency to 3.7 million, which is the best figure of the last 21 years, having to go back to 1997 to find a better figure.

The Councilor for Economics in the City of Lorca, Juan Francisco Martínez, reported that the Municipal Executive has managed to optimize spending in all its departments so that the municipal debt, today, has been reduced to 41,428,911.19 euros, which is the best data since 2006. We are talking about a very significant improvement, since of the 105 million uncovered by the independent audit carried out in 2008, we went to the aforementioned amount, confirming an improvement of 63.6 million euros in the last 10 years.

Martínez Carrasco has detailed that the positive evolution of the figure of municipal debt has been translated into practical terms in a daily improvement estimated at 17,260.27 euros, which is a clear example of the work being carried out by of the economic and tax team of this City Council is offering outstanding results.

The improvement of the municipal accounts has also been transferred to the ordinary payment currency that has been changing every year, until reaching its best data for the last 21 years, specifically 3,781,245.63 euros.

In fact, it would be necessary to go back to the year 1997 to find a better figure, a reality that underscores the importance of the steps that have been taken so far to eliminate superfluous spending, optimize the destination of public money and take advantage of every last cent of the resources economic benefits of this City Council.

The Mayor of Economy and Finance has also stated that the total figure of debt offers its best data of the last 17 years, having to go back until 2001 to find an equal figure.

We should note that this figure reflects an improvement of 4,064,377.07 euros compared to the situation that appeared at the end of last year.

Juan Francisco Martínez has anticipated that this improvement is derived from the commitment of austerity and common efficiency of all municipal areas to improve the economic health of the City Council.

It is working, and it is doing well, achieving results that directly affect the benefit of all Lorca, reducing as quickly as possible the bulky municipal debt that we had to face at the time, and whose weight we have borne responsibly and effectiveness.

The situation today allows us to face with hope and hope the economic panorama of the Consistory, since the results are very good news for all, for which we can congratulate ourselves, since it has been achieved precisely having to face an authentic "perfect storm", when we were hit by the worst natural catastrophes in the history of the city, to which was added the worst economic, social and labor crisis in Spain, with a plummeting of municipal revenues and having had to endure millionaire court sentences against the City Council.

The Economy Edil has pointed out that where there was waste, boxes full of unpaid bills and bankruptcy, today Lorca has rigor in spending, suppliers charged in a matter of days and confidence before administration and banking.

We are talking about facts and realities resulting from the commitment we acquired with Lorca and that we will continue to develop until the municipal coffers are cleaned up.

In spite of everything, we have been able to increase the provision of municipal services, increase and improve our educational, health and communication infrastructures, in addition to rebuilding our historical heritage and recovering a battered and wounded city.

Martínez Carrasco has indicated that, as already anticipated by the Mayor, Fulgencio Gil, the project we are carrying out to achieve a new Lorca has as a fundamental basis to have a strong City Council economically, so that we can apply new reductions in municipal taxes, at the same time that we managed to be an administration with liquidity, in front of the serious delinquency that we had to face years ago.

The strength of a city depends to a large extent on how we can continue to improve the financial health of this Local Administration.

Now the Lorca enjoy an increasingly strong City Council, in fact before we were not solvent and even refused to grant us credits, while today we have taken a total turn at the juncture.
