To reiterate the mayor, Bruna Sibille, during the city council that took place yesterday evening, Monday 12 July. "The lighting of the Zizzola, the facade of the town hall and Piazza Caduti for freedom will be extinguished. On the part of the mayors there is great responsibility to proceed in the direction of an arrangement of public accounts but it is not acceptable that the partnership is discharged, for the substantial part, on local authorities "- said the first citizen -" You can not change during the year the rules of the Stability Pact, as I do not accept that a virtuous body is put on the same level and who is not, "he concluded. "I hope for a rethinking by the municipal administration, because turning off public lighting means damaging the rights of citizens, who may not know or share the protest" - asked the adviser Roberto Russo (PDL), while for Gianni Comoglio ( Project Bra) it was necessary to open a political debate on the subject, with the promise of the mayor Sibille to verify the possibility of convening an ad hoc city council in September.

The assembly chaired by Fabio Bailo then unanimously approved the new municipal regulation on the administrative procedure and approved the adhesion of Bra to the association "Hortus novus", "association that was born in the framework of the Creso, the provincial body which deals with horticulture and new agricultural production "- as said by the mayor Sibille -" This is in order to give our gardens the opportunity to promote experiments to obtain better products, but with the need that these improvements go hand in hand with greater remuneration of work in the fields. Otherwise, photovoltaics will become the most dangerous competitor ". (Rg)
