The mayoress of Marbella, Ángeles Muñoz, has signed a collaboration agreement this Wednesday with representatives of Acosol and the community of owners of Costabella for the execution of works of comprehensive renovation of supply infrastructures, sanitation and rainwater, some works that will have an investment of 4.1 million euros.
This was highlighted by the councilor at the signing of the agreement, where she was accompanied by the CEO of the public water company, Carlos Cañavate, the executive CEO, Manuel Cardeña, and the president and vice president of the neighborhood group, María Haydée and Montserrat González, respectively.
As detailed, the works represent an investment of more than 4.1 million euroswhich will go out to public bidding and will foreseeably begin after the summer, adding to similar interventions in El Rosario and Hacienda Las Chapas and benefiting 7,000 residents between the three cases.
The first mayor has also indicated that the economic contribution will be carried out in a 50 percent by the Marbella Town Hall25% owned by Acosol and the remaining 25% by the residents themselves, “the result of public-private collaboration”.
“This is a very important three-part agreement to carry out three much-needed projects in this district, which we started with El Rosario, whose works are already at 90 percent completion, which we continue with Hacienda Las Chapas and which we are now transferring to Costabella so that this urbanization can also have new supply, sanitation and rainwater infrastructures”, has explained.
On the other hand, Muñoz has detailed that among the needs for improvement is the fact that this urbanization, built in the 1960s and which has 360 homes, has a old sewage disposal network in which bottlenecks are generated in some of its roads.
In regards to the rainwater networkrain collection devices are very scarce, in addition to being connected to sewage and causing odor problems, while in terms of supply, leaks and pressure problems occur due to having a fiber cement installation deteriorated by the passage of time.
The mayoress has indicated that the 4.1 million euros come to complete the total of 10 million invested between the three projects (El Rosario, Hacienda Las Chapas and Costabella) and has pointed out that the works in this last case have an execution period of 8 months.
For her part, the vice-president of the community of owners of the urbanization of Marbella has expressed her gratitude for the signing of this agreement and for the collaboration between administrations and residents to solve some sanitation, supply and rainwater problems that they have been suffering for years and which this action will put an end to.
