Expensive bills and heating in high school. “We are working on it together with the Union of Provinces of Italy. The problem concerns everyone and it is necessary for the government to intervene” reiterated the president Giuseppe Paolini, announcing shortly the convocation of an extraordinary provincial council on the subject, on the pages of Viveresenigallia. it. “The provinces do not have the capacity to maneuver on revenues. They live off state transfers and the proceeds of the IPT (the tax linked to the registration of cars, ed.) Which for us this year have decreased by a million and a half. meanwhile, high school heating bills have risen by three million. And electricity costs continue to rise from month to month. The picture is clear. ” According to the president, an unsustainable situation: “Businesses, restaurateurs, hoteliers have enormous difficulties. And even public bodies are not exempt. Many municipalities risk bankruptcy”. Paolini adds: “We received 190 thousand euros in contributions from the state: a negligible figure. Resolving action is needed and we will continue to put pressure on”. In the meantime, the president is grappling with the complicated puzzle of the immediate: “After the extraordinary council we will discuss with principals and mayors. At present we are able to guarantee heating in high schools until December. So we will necessarily have to rationalize”. The reference is to the austerity of the seventies: “The situation is reminiscent of that experienced between 1973 and 1974, with the provisions on drastic containment of energy consumption. It is clear that some things will change”. The hypotheses concern “lower temperatures, lights off in the afternoons in the institutes, afternoon meetings that will not be held in person but online. And heated gyms only for school activities and for those of the disabled. Not for the rest of the uses”. He did not even exclude lessons in Dad for Saturdays: “But on all this – concludes the president – we will discuss with the school administrators and make decisions together. We will do everything possible. However, I hope that comprehensive solutions will soon arrive for the Provinces and for the country “.
