The municipal contract for disinfestation and deratization ended at the end of last year and the Department of Health has not yet released the specifications to re-tender the work, which has motivated the opposition to sound the alarm about this situation. And, despite the fact that the service continues to be provided as it is considered essential and invoices are paid each month to the former concessionaire, this payment is executed under the criteria of the old agreement, which has been recognized as scarce by the municipal government itself.

In fact, the document being worked on by the area directed by Gonzalo López Pretel, of Vox, will include new parameters so that the service can cover the entire municipality, since the previous contract had become too small. However, the administrative deadlines are moving at their own pace and the award will not be a until the month of August, in the middle of summer.

This fact is what has led MC Cartagena to publicly denounce that there is no contract for this service “despite the fact that the summer campaign is approaching and mosquitoes are beginning to proliferate, adding to other pests such as cockroaches or rats, which multiply with the rise in temperatures.

The Cartagena councilor Juan José López Escolar recalled that “last February, the plenary session approved an MC motion to develop a disinfection, deratization and disinfestation contract, providing it with a sufficient budget to extend it throughout the year.” “Well, we reached the month of May without the Health Councilor having lifted a single finger,” lamented the mayor, who added that “while the contract specifications are being drawn up and put out to tender, as soon as we enter August and By then the complaints from the neighbors will have arrived.

López Escolar has gone further and stated that “this is a clear example of what Noelia Arroyo’s government has been doing, which pays irregularly for not having a contract.” “They have had to be forward-thinking for a long time and now they are late,” he explained, emphasizing that the contract should also contemplate “an expansion of the one allocated to nursery schools and sports facilities, which are more than 120 centers to be treated and where “Only 3,000 euros are allocated.”

Reinforcement campaign

The reinforcement campaign that has been carried out since the previous legislature in provincial councils and natural enclaves such as El Carmolí, Lo Poyo and Calblanque during the months of May, June and July is also pending, although sources consulted have indicated that at the moment no action has been taken. advanced in any hiring for this year.

However, the Cartagena mayor has indicated that “it is necessary to stop looking the other way and face that with climate change, insects and rodents are no longer a matter of specific months, but that complaints about their proliferation arrive in other months.” different, added to the traditional summer ones.

Therefore, López Escolar claims, “the City Council must have a fumigation contract in accordance with the situation and stop taking specific actions, which only try to disguise an unsustainable circumstance.”
