The Councilor for Organization and Public Contracting, Paqui Terol, pointed out that "most of the streets in this area still have provisional names, which little by little we want to substitute the definitive name to cover the needs of residents, who all the bills require a definitive postal address.
" Recognition of sport "It is a tribute from the city to those who have contributed to the promotion of sport in Alcantarilla, as well as for the promotion they have always made of such positive values ??as respect, cooperation, teamwork, participation, camaraderie and so many others that go hand in hand with sport, "said the councilor.
