The mayor of Villa Regina, Marcelo Orazi, He took off the complaints made yesterday by one of the members of the Court of Accounts and confirmed that he never used public funds to pay salaries. And he maintained that in any case it will be the Municipal Prosecutor’s Office that will rule on whether there were irregularities.
Orazi spoke this morning with BLACK RIVER RADIOwhere he assured that the money is in a bank account and that its transfer to the national authorities has already been agreed since the work was never carried out.
Along these lines, he clarified that The original project proposed a remodeling work for 75 million, although only 37 million of that amount was transferred. Between twists and turns, the work never came to fruition, which is why Nación is now demanding the return of the money. The same happened with the 15 million sent to buy food for “indigent” people.
«It happened not only to us but also to other cities where the works were paralyzed because inflation rapidly exceeded the planned investments“, maintained the mayor who clarified that this money was never used for anything else.
Y He assured that neither of the two items were destined for another purpose. “We can’t use it for other things. I can’t make a gutter cord, I can’t change the destination of those funds. It was not used for the payment of salaries », he reiterated.
The mayor remarked that several projects that are being carried out will have the same fate, taking into account that the inflationary process prevented many companies from continuing with the development of the works that had been proposed at the beginning.
