Between last year and the end of this year, the local councils in Gozo will have been given 5.5 million Euro, for the maintenance and cleaning of residential roads. This was stated by the Parliamentary Secretary for Local Government Stefan Buontempo during a meeting of the Gozo region in Gharb. He said that over the last few months, several projects were completed in different localities at an investment of over one million Euro. The work was carried out in Għasri, Għarb, Xagħra, Nadur, Sannat, Munxar, Xlendi, Marsalforn and Rabat.
Buontempo said that the money allocated for the work goes directly into the intended projects and in the case of local councils which do not follow procedures, the money has to be refunded from its allocated financing.
