During a visit to the Triple A animal shelter, the mayor, Ángeles Muñoz, announced that pipes would be laid to connect the premises to the mains water supply and sewerage network. The project, which will also benefit the municipal services warehouse in the same area, will be carried out by the water company Hidralia with a budget of 500,000 euros. "We hope it will be ready by the end of the year," said the mayor.
Muñoz also announced to mark World Animal Day that the yearly subsidy that Triple A receives from Marbella town hall would increase to 60,000 euros next year, twice the current input of 30,000 euros. The electrical system would also be improved.
The secretary of Triple A, Jan Weima, thanked the mayor for the investment saying that it would bring an end to "more than 15 years without a mains drinking water supply".
