The Assembly Hall of Benidorm City Council has been the scene today, the day of Santa Rita de Casia, of the act with which the municipal institution pays tribute to its workers in the figure of those who have completed 25 years of service, and have recently retired or have passed away and whose relatives receive the recognition and affection of the institution and their colleagues. The event was chaired by the mayor, Toni Pérez, accompanied by the Councilor for Human Resources, Ángela Zaragozí, and numerous members of the municipal corporation.
The honorees, 130 people in total, workers from all municipal areas, have received a commemorative gift from the mayor and members of the corporation. 61 workers due to retirement, another 61 for 25 years of service and 8 due to death.
At the end of the act, Toni Pérez addressed those present and, first of all, thanked all of them for their work. To those who turned 25, he has sent "encouragement on the journey that remains for you because you represent Benidorm". He has told the retired workers that “you look great and you are missed because there is a little bit of this house in everyone”. The mayor has reminded them that "you know that you are appreciated and applauds the work done".
The mayor also had words for those officials who have died in these years and stressed that it was “an emotional moment for those colleagues who have left us. Each one has a piece of our heart and will be remembered because he wrote the story of him in this Town Hall”. The event ended with the Mayor congratulating all the honorees and the families of the deceased before they all posed together for a souvenir photo.
