mayor of Raffadali, Silvio Cuffaro, speaks with a press note for
contest and deny the circumstance according to which the Municipality that leads has
stolen water, as per a complaint presented to the carabinieri by Girgenti waters, for
feed a fountain in the main square.
who cites Cicero as being extremely patient – in his note he challenges the timing of the
dissemination of the news (???) e
relaunches stating, among other things, that the theft is nonexistent while, a
his say, the theft of electricity has been ascertained
of Girgenti Acque.
as the mayor argues:
was thrilled! I don't know whether to cry or laugh!
Waters due to a non-existent alleged unauthorized water intake of a public fountain,
overshadows the existence of water theft and fears the responsibility of the Municipality,
forgetting or pretending not to know that:
1) The fountain is therefore in a continuous cycle
it does not need any water intake;
2) The municipality has always filled the tank
of compensation with tankers, as easily demonstrated and published
also on Facebook by the supplier company on the occasion of the "fastuca fest";
3) The socket reported by them, if
existing, surely it was not created by this administration e
not even from the administrations in which I held public offices; so that
during the syndication of the years 2002/2007 to put the fountain into operation
the Municipality has created a water connection between it and the building
municipal, pipeline still existing, although not in operation due to the
continuous breakages that occurred when crossing the national road;
4) The municipality over the years has put in
the fountain functions only in the main village festivals.
the Municipality of Raffadali in 2015, at the beginning of my mandate, verified a
improper use by Girgenti Acque, since 2010, of all utilities
systems in support of water and sewage systems, owned by the municipality of
that the city of Raffadali, over time, has regularly paid an amount of
€ 378,500.00, as ascertained with the judgment of the Court of Agrigento no
1267 of 2017 which sentenced Girgenti Acque to repay these sums.
therefore in the opinion of citizens the behaviors adopted by mine
administration and by Girgenti Acque.
however, this served to demonstrate that Girgenti Acque continues to persist and
to denigrate the Raffadalese community, and this unjust accusation of theft is one
a clear and obvious example ".
