The Benidorm City Council is coordinating with the neighborhood associations to begin disinfection of public spaces in all areas of the city.
The aim is to be “more efficient and reach all areas where these tasks are required,” according to the mayor, Toni Pérez.
Mr Peréz said “Currently, through the Municipal Cleaning Service, we are operating daily in three lines: disinfection of public roads, affecting essential facilities such as health centers and access to supermarkets or pharmacies; disinfection of accesses and passageways of communal apartment entrances, and disinfection of business frontages and terraces of shops and restaurants that are scheduled to open their doors in the next few days ”.
To date, more than a thousand owner communities and nearly 250 establishments have been disinfected. However, “the existence of this service may not become known to all citizens and therefore we have considered it appropriate to rely on the neighborhood network to have greater reach and also to meet needs that perhaps we have not detected.”
“The residents are the ones who know their neighborhoods the best, the areas with the most traffic and also which shops, bars or restaurants are going to return to activity, and thus guide us best when it comes to disinfecting these spaces,”
In addition, through neighborhood associations you can collect requests for disinfection of communities or establishments that have been requested individually.
This coordinated work has already started today with the help of the Association of Neighbours of Poniente and Mont Benidorm. Today the cleaning brigades will travel to Colonia Madrid and on Monday to Ciudad Jardín-Saladar neighborhood. The planning of the rest of the zones will be outlined in the coming days through the Neighborhood Council.
The first vice president of the Neighborhood Council, Teresa Garrido, has indicated that
“with this initiative promoted by the City Council, it is intended to help return to normality.” According to Garrido, “today most of La Cala’s premises have been disinfected and in the next few days it will reach all the neighborhoods of Benidorm, giving continuity to this task and passing through all areas of the city once or twice a week “
