The elected mayor of Arequipa, Victor Hugo Rivera Chavez, described as a complete misgovernment, the situation in which the provincial municipality will receive. As a result of the transfer process, the former referee’s team identified a series of observations.
Yesterday, Rivera highlighted that The Municipality of Arequipa has debts payable amounting to 97 million 300 thousand soles. You must pay the money to EsSalud, Fonavi, Sedapar, for court rulings, awards and other court debts. Likewise, he must collect 400 million 778 thousand soles, an amount that according to Rivera, was not collected due to a deficient collection system.
The work of the Bicentennial road interchange is unfinished and with 10 addenda to the contract on top. The attempt to sign an eleventh for 13 million more soles, was rejected by the Comptroller. Rivera stated that during his management he will review the addendum and if it is legally justified, he will assume it. “We have to see how we can improve the report that they have given you,” he said.
He argued that the works should not be paralyzed.
This is a possibility that Rivera analyzes for obsolete units, vehicles without SOAT. They will review the contracts of the companies that are part of the SIT.
Another measure that they would take is a restructuring of the vehicular flow, which would imply changing the direction of some streets such as San Juan de Dios, which in 2023 would be in the direction of descent and enabled for the passage of all types of vehicles and not only for those of the SIT.
Another diagnostic point ise the Quebrada Honda landfill is about to collapse and it could only receive solid waste until the end of February 2023. Rivera said that the alternative is to look for new land to build a new landfill or improve the current site.
“We have talked with the KFW and support is one of the possibilities,” he said.
Rivera announced that he and his councilors will be sworn in at 00:00 on Sunday, January 1, at the municipal facilities. As indicated by law, the deputy mayor will take the oath. However, he will hold another symbolic swearing-in ceremony for his relatives, relatives and other authorities to attend, on Saturday, January 7, at the parade ground.
