Municipalities and their Funds

Municipalities are starting to tighten their belts. So far, in luxury or superfluous things, so to speak. The Salamanca, for example, has fallen by a quarter of its budget of festivities. The biggest losers, of course, are those bands that bivouac under public money. And is that in Spain we have created an industry of culture-entertainment, more well-funded with the taxes of everyone and that often results in the payment of cronyism and favors do not really know who or why. If other social, educational or child-forming, for instance, receive a fraction of these generous contributions, we should probably not complain after the rise of juvenile delinquency. But I will not deviate from the topic of this article. And the point is that our municipalities have no hard or are expected to have.

As the insatiable regions have gotten inadequate state funding, yes, given that the waste characterization, the Spanish municipalities are less every day because, above all, the real estate slowdown. Therefore, some have taken to the streets hatchet-shaped collecting parking fines, increases in the IBI, increased garbage rates, and so forth. Of course in this general context of austerity, with reduced consumption, reduced holidays, savings on transportation, … there are those who earn more in real terms than before. Those who see their pay increased in collective agreements while prices are lower than or believe it. Also many others with stable work-read staff, abundant species in Salamanca, that is with the utmost of my affections, have little to lose from this crisis. Still, uncertainty about the future and distrust of government measures have widespread austerity for which we were not prepared. I do not know what hurts us more: if have reduced consumption often excessive or lack of habit of having to adapt to reality.
