In a statement to the media, Ioannis Alexopoulos, president of the community of Pititsa, of the Municipal community of Rio Patras, emphasizes that “today the Deputy Mayor of Infrastructure Projects and IT equipment, Mr. Kordas, withdrew for the second time in a row, the matter from the Municipal Council for the proportional distribution of the retributive benefits to the Communities of A. Kastritsiou, Argyra, Pititsa and Sella. The community leaders were informed about the withdrawal of the issue today an hour before the start of the council without any valid explanation.
The Panahaikou I Wind Farm is located in an area within the administrative boundaries of the above communities. The community of Argyras has 15 wind turbines within its boundaries, the community of Pititsas 13, the community of A. Kastritsiou 11 and the community of Sellon 2 and according to Law 3468/2006 the amounts must be calculated proportionally.
Until today the Municipality divides them by 4 and for this reason the three communities except Sella asked the Municipal Council for the Municipal Authority to implement the law.
We do not know what the community of Sella “holds back” the Municipal Authority and through last minute interventions the issue that was up for discussion is withdrawn. The Municipal Authority must give us an official answer, and not bother us.
Why did he withdraw the matter both times? Finally, Mr. Mayor constantly preaches justice and morality. We don’t see it in practice.”
