Crotone, clash over Eni funds in the Chamber


By John

We should have talked about the “Energy District” and environmental policies, about Tari and the single property fee, and instead yesterday afternoon’s City Council was transformed into a ring of controversy, with personal attacks, political digs and outbursts of all kinds.
The meeting was actually called for August 29th, but the Prime Minister Mario Megna on Tuesday he was then forced to postpone the proceedings to the second call, due to the lack of a quorum. And the first citizen Vincenzo Voce he did not fail to underline this when responding to the councillor Dalila Venneri, rebuking them for having left the classroom together with the mimoranza. A dig that comes at a moment of tension between the mayor and some of his majority advisors.
In any case, yesterday the assembly voted by majority, first the change to the regulation for the Tari fee, approving an important modification which equates small accommodation businesses, such as landlords and Bed&Breakfasts, to homes. Then the budget councilor Antonio Scandale accepted the councilor’s proposal Antonio Manica to include people who are residents but who work and study outside when calculating the number of inhabitants of each property. Then, after having approved the other points foreseen almost without debate, it was the councilor’s turn Igino Pingitore who proposed a resolution to ask the Calabria Region to revoke the founding resolution regarding the energy district.
