The plenary session of Calp's municipal council has decided, with the votes of the government team (PP and Ciudadanos), to request the initiation of the procedure to change the name of the municipality of Calp to Calpe/Calp. The initiative, based on a proposal by the Ciudadanos group, was supported with Compromís y Defendamos Calpe voting against and the PSOE abstaining.
The Councils for Citizen Participation and Associations have published the Sustainable Development Calendar to raise awareness of the 2030 Agenda Goals.
This calendar replaces the Green Calendar, traditionally published by the two councils in collaboration with education centres and developed under Local Agenda 21 to spread and raise environmental awareness among school children and the general population.
With today's publication of the projects to adapt and furnish Casa Roja for the family unit and the construction of a water point in the Oltà Mountains in the contractor's profile, the investments that will be financed with the remaining funds from the 2019 budget resolution are already in the bidding phase.
With only one exception: the rehabilitation of the Club Social and the execution of the pedestrian bridge and coastal renovation in Cala Manzanera de Calp, whose tender deadline ended recently.
Calp City Council, through the Education Council, has installed CO2 meters and air purifiers in the four local schools and Silene d'Ifac kindergarten during the Christmas holidays. These measures are intended to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the classrooms.
The CO2 meters make it possible to sound an alarm if a room is not properly ventilated, putting teachers or pupils at risk. They are therefore particularly useful during this period of low temperatures, when the cold forces the windows to be closed.
Esperanza P.M., a 104-year-old resident of La Saleta de Calp, was the first person to be vaccinated against COVID-19 in the city.

During the day, 232 people will be vaccinated, both residents and staff of the old people's home. In the coming weeks, the vaccination will continue in the other two old people's home in the municipality: La Colina and Domus Vi.

Calp gave final approval today in a plenary session to the 14 investments that will be financed with a total of 4,178,125 euros from the surplus of the municipal treasury. The proposal of the socialist councillor faction, which proposes to replace these investments with others, was also discussed.
