“We view with great concern the APA’s decision to condemn the municipality to a single fine of 55 thousand euros for having committed three infractions in the Couto Esteves enjoyment area”, said member Diana Paiva, when speaking in the last session of the supervisory and deliberative body local.

“It seems impossible that a municipality that is also a works licensing entity could have carried out works without any licensing”, he criticized. An “atrocity” that “was committed in previous terms”, now “confirmation of yet another illegality.”

“We know of several works started without any documentation, this situation has very serious consequences for the municipality. Let’s see how the appeal of this decision goes”, added Diana Paiva.

The spokeswoman for the coalition’s bench in the presidency of the Chamber said that there is also concern about the planned price review of works carried out by the builder of the new school center worth 70 thousand euros, “something that they had transmitted to us in the previous term would not happen, despite all the graceful failures and postponements.”

“It is yet another demonstration of negligence in how dossiers were handled in the previous term. We have to make up for the loss,” she lamented, finally, the elected social democrat.
