Council furore over missing €800,000

OPPOSITION politicians have accused Fuengirola Council of neglecting to collect almost €1 million from companies.

Ciudadanos have said the council gave away land to several companies without collecting the €800,000 it was worth, instead allowing the sums to be paid off through public works.  The party further claims there is no paperwork to show how much work was carried out by these companies and it is therefore impossible to know whether the full value was repaid.

In turn, the council says it was “compensated” for the plots of land it gave away “by the realisation of public works of value equal or greater than the agreed compensation, which in those years was a valid form of compliance.”
