The corporation agrees to designate the paso doble 'Fiesta en Benidorm' Official Hymn of the Major Patron Festivities

The plenary of Benidorm has approved today to request the Ministry of Agriculture, Environment, Climate Change and Rural Development to review the Plan of Natural Resources Management (PORN) of Serra Gelada and its coastal zone to allow the construction of ponds for agricultural use in all its extension. The councilman of the Water Cycle, José Ramón González de Zárate, explained that this proposal is based on "the requests of the Water Consortium of the Marina Baixa, the irrigators of the Canal Bajo del Algar and the municipal technicians" who demand the construction of ponds to store purified water and avoid that "in periods of maximum flow" those water resources that are not consumed in agriculture end up in the sea. De Zárate has indicated that these ponds would allow "to accumulate this water, to be used later in agriculture", even "in case of fire", so they would be "very positive for Benidorm and the rest of the municipalities of the region" since "they would improve the management of water resources ".

Also in terms of water, the plenary session has supported by a large majority the draft of the agreement between the City Council and the Generalitat to carry out the improvement works in the sanitation and treatment infrastructure announced by the Ministry in 2016, of which the administration local will have to assume 40% of its cost.

By a large majority, it has been agreed to set up a Joint Commission that will be in charge of resuming "the negotiation of resolution by mutual agreement of the concession contract of the bus station".

According to the agreement approved today, the members of the Commission will set the day of the week in which the meetings will be held and "the advisors who must attend" them "after carrying out the technical support and advisory work that is declared necessary "

By majority, a motion by the mayor, amended by the opposition groups, has been successful, to create a Special Commission for the investigation of the bus station file and documents of the same. The amendment -approved with the votes of PSOE, Citizens (Cs), Liberals of Benidorm (Libe) and Compromís-Los Verdes and warned by the municipal secretary-, includes that this Commission is chaired by the socialist spokesman, Rubén Martínez, and that the deputy spokesman Cs, Juan Balastegui, assumes the Vice Presidency, and that the rest of the groups have vowels with a weighted vote for their representation within the corporation, including the non-attached councilors. The commission will last for "at least two months, with the possibility of extension" and will meet "every Monday".

Also by majority has been given the green light to the five proposals raised to full by the Councilor for Urban Development, Lourdes Caselles. The first proposal is the approval of the detailed study of the block delimited by Tokyo and Taiwan streets and by action unit 3 in Serra Gelada, rejecting the allegations presented. Likewise, another detailed study has also been approved to increase a building for parking in the Colonia Madrid area.

The plenary session has also supported by a majority a new expropriation agreement by mutual agreement for the execution of the so-called Discotecas road, which will link the N-332 road and the Valencian Community avenue; and has accepted the unilateral and anticipated cession of 153.40 square meters of soil, subsoil and flight made by the Los Arcos hotel, which will allow the width of the sidewalk of the Philippines Avenue to be extended as it passes through the establishment. In addition, by majority, the program of Execution Unit 2 of the 'Tertiary Corridor' (the APR-3) awarded in 2003 has been resolved by mutual agreement, thus favoring the implementation of activities in the area.

Unanimously, the corporation has agreed to declare the Official Hymn of the Major Patron Festivities the pasodoble 'Fiesta en Benidorm', by the teacher Rafael Doménech Pardo, released 40 years ago, gathering "the sentiments shared by the Commission of Major Festivities, the Musical Union of Benidorm, the Musical Society l'Illa and the Musical Society La Nova ".

As stated in the proposal, the interpretation of this pasodoble "at the beginning of our Major Patronal Festivals thrills year after year, being also performed in popular celebrations of France, Portugal or Manizales (Colombia)", and "contagious feeling of joy for how the town of Benidorm is identified with it and with the start of our Fiestas ". "So much so," continues the proposal, "that it has become a highly esteemed and almost compulsory piece of music for musicians in Benidorm, due to its high sentimental value, but also because of the pride it represents to interpret it for each of the bands of our city: the Musical Union of Benidorm, the Musical Society l'Illa de Benidorm and the La Nova Musical Society, being traditionally directed by the teacher ".

The corporation has agreed by a large majority to transfer to the Ministry of Education the adequacy of the amounts of annuities marked at the time for the realization of a multi-purpose pavilion at Leonor Canalejas school within the framework of 'Edificant' program.
