Muñoz has indicated that “it has been a very positive meeting in which the decrease in conventional crime in the municipality has been highlighted, especially in terms of robberies, and in which we have been informed about the Costa del Sol Plan launched by the Ministry of the Interior, an initiative that we consider very necessary for the beginning of the summer season and the increase in visitors.

Finally, he has specified that the plot that will be transferred in San Pedro Alcántara is annexed to the Social Services Center and can be expanded to up to 2,000 square meters since, as he has shown, “it is a population center that has grown a lot and requires More services”
