Toquero, these accounts”Consolidating Tudela’s transformation and the city’s modernization strategy is reaching its zenith by completing the major investments budgeted for 2022”. What would it be for the first mayor”a political pauseIf Navarra Suma and other entities had led, these are “active budgets following our intention to modernize Tudela”.

The consolidated budget of 53.8m euros (Water Authority, Tudela Cultura and City Hall) receives an additional 1.8 million from the Local Treasury Fund, but for Toquero, “This amount used against our request for the letter of importance does not cover the amount in any way. As the capital of La Ribera The report estimated the services provided at 5.6 million euros. This is neither fair nor sufficient, nor has this been agreed with the City Council”.

The “frantic spending” that comes with rising prices (Toquero said this represents a 32 percent increase in water, electricity and fuel) will have no effect on citizens, they say, and they will ask for it. a loan of 2.1m euros, which they do not yet know whether they will use it, but will face the influx of money from European aid and wind farms.

Among the investments made for “to clean up a city accused of inexplicable and inexcusable negligence”. 750.000 € An additional 60,000 euros will be invested in paving and maintenance to improve the furniture.

Those who will be most affected (after the flood of investments) there will be collectives, associations and clubs. According to Toquero, “we helped organizations that had something to contribute. We increased the items for everyone working at Tudela,” but despite the sharp increase in costs they will experience due to the CPI, the increase was actually 0% for the vast majority. A) Yes, Dédalo Foundation, Ribera Retirees Club, Amimet, Anfas, Anasaps, María Forcada Foundation, Foundation for Addictions, Red Cross, Food Bank, San Francisco Javier Foundation, Association for people with ADD, apymas or Tudela Comparte continued with the same contribution Fan clubs will see an increase of €2,000 (2.6%) distributed among over 7 organisations, while paloteados and Olentzero will have €500 more.
