It seems that the PP party are not happy about the way the contracts for the Fondo Estatal de Inversión Local (FEIL) work in Bigastro have been awarded. Remember this was government money intended for new projects with the intention of stimulating the economy.
Aurelio Murcia, the spokesperson for the PP claims that the people employed to do the work on Avenida Apatel, the road into town from the roundabout, are not from the unemployed list. Murcia says the company involved are from Torrevieja and provided the most expensive bid for the work. He even hints that they may be related to or are friends of local councillors.
In case you wondered what exactly they are doing, they are widening the pavements and laying down a cycle path.
