Through a resolution of the mayor, José Chulvi, addressed to the Subdelegation of the Government in Alicante, the municipality lists the main work that had to be undertaken “urgently and necessary” for safety and to restore normality to the population after the Great Storm of January 27. These include the opening of a ditch on Avenida Mediterráneo, the cleaning and repair of a section of the Gorgos river, the removal of trees & service interventions. In total there are expenses of 64,521 euros.
