THE mayor of La Linea has threatened to resign if the town does not receive funding from local and central government.
Gemma Araujo made the dramatic announcement after claiming the government has failed to pay grants to help with the dire economic situation faced by the border town.
“The administration is showing an unjustified passivity and disregard for the economic situation that was inherited from the previous PP management.
“I do not rule out resigning en mass and dissolving the administration to form a management board to take charge of the accounts.”
Araujo is now expected to reduce the municipal workplace and scrap productivity bonuses in a further bid to reduce costs.
