City Receives 1 Million Euro Regional Funding

This is good news in the current context of severe budgetary constraints. The Île-de-France region has just granted a million euros in subsidy to the city under the Regional Development Contract (CAR). A relief for the municipality which will thus be able to carry out several projects.

Indispensable Partners

“CAR contracts are signed for three years, explains Alexandra Rosetti (UDI), the mayor of Voisins-le-Bretonneux. I am particularly satisfied because we obtained the maximum of what we could receive as a subsidy in this context. This will cover 50% of the cost of various projects that we had submitted for these regional grants. »

And to add: “Today it is totally essential. Without our partners which are in particular the Region but also the department of Yvelines and the urban community of Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines, we could not do much alone. We have less and less means and more and more needs. Especially since, if we want to undertake the energy renovation work necessary to save money in the long term, we need financing. »

Thus, the Town Hall will be able to launch the construction of the new cemetery, maintain part of its roads, redo the sealing of the moat of the Decauville space “and take back the glass roof of the sports center of the Pyramids which has leaks”, specifies the mayor of Voisins-le-Bretonneux.

At the same time, the municipality of Voisins-le-Bretonneux has also applied for the participatory budget set up by the Île-de-France region. As a result, she obtained the sum of 43,000 euros for “small projects such as the creation of vegetated beds or the installation of educational ashtrays”, underlines Alexandra Rosetti. A first ashtray has already been installed in front of the town hall “and a dozen will thus be positioned in the rest of the city”, concludes the city councilor.

Educational ashtrays improve the cleanliness of the city while facilitating their recycling and delivering a message for the planet. They are starting to bloom all over the towns.
