The municipal group of VOX in the Granada City Council asks the PP and Citizens' government team for responsibility because they have devised 'paripé budgets' that do not reflect the real needs of Granada families, the ruin of many companies, merchants, and self-employed workers that they are experiencing a health, economic and social crisis every day due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The spokesman for the municipal group of VOX, Onofre Miralles, has expressed his "surprise after the first day of consultations in the informative committees for the Full Budget, given that we are given data, but without specifying and without offering updated documentation regarding to the one already provided in the month of February ».
"We have lived two months in a state of alarm, we are very concerned about a situation that has had a catastrophic impact on the city's economy, and yet the government team is obsessed with maintaining and presenting municipal budgets without having collected the brutal impact that the Covid-19 crisis has caused in the municipal coffers and in all the families of Granada ", Onofre Miralles pointed out.
VOX proposals at the Granada City Council.
VOX has in its electoral program the lowering of taxes for Spaniards as one of the basic measures to improve the lives of citizens and allow the increase of the consumption and saving capacity of society. For this reason, the municipal training group has submitted a motion to the Granada City Council to include in the municipal Tax Ordinance an article that permanently establishes a 95% discount on the Tax on the Increase in Value of Land Urban Nature.
On the other hand, VOX has registered a motion to eliminate subsidies and aid to political parties, unions, business organizations, foundations and associations that are not intended to fight the coronavirus or create jobs and fully transfer those funds to fight the effects of the pandemic and its economic consequences.
In addition, the VOX Fiscal Contingency Plan against the damage caused by the pandemic proposes the reduction of 50% of all municipal rates whose taxable event is linked to the development of a commercial or business activity (garbage rate, rate for occupation of the public domain for terraces of bars and restaurants, or vendors in municipal markets, fixed or mobile); deferment of the payment of the tax on constructions, installations and works of all works that have been paralyzed by the sanitary crisis or the declaration of the state of alarm. In case they have already been settled, 50% refund.
The Granada City Council, in turn, must prepare and approve an Unnecessary Spending Reduction Plan, identifying all non-essential needs, to suspend its execution definitively during 2020 with the corresponding budgetary reallocations, proceeding to suspend the execution of all budgetary items not executed -totally or partially- that refer to non-essential or unnecessary expenses for the fight against the health crisis.
