Our society these days shows its best person and supports our fellow citizens in need in various parts of our islands.
The biggest problem we will face in the coming months at infrastructure level is road damage, especially in areas of the Municipality of Sami. Yesterday, Monday 21/9, I visited villages of Pylaros and Eryssos.
I found myself in Logarata, Bekatorata and Antypata Pylaros, where there are serious damage to the road network, as well as in many settlements of the catchment area of Pylaros. With the President of the Local Community of Divarata Mr. Dionysis Antypas we saw the most serious damage to the main road axis of Pylaros.
In Fiskardo the image I saw was very pleasant and hopeful in the difficulties we face. The settlement after cleaning work was almost back to the situation before the bad weather.Congratulations to the volunteer team of Eryssos, the professionals, ordinary residents and the President of the Local Community of Fiskardo, Mr. Stathis Tselentis.
I spoke to residents and professionals in the area who expressed their concerns. I also had an interview with SKAI and journalist Mr. Christos Stratoulakos. I mentioned the major problems created in our islands but at the same time the image of Fiskardo allowed me to transfer my belief that we will manage to overcome the difficulties.
The Government is constantly assessing the situation. After the first recording of the gravity of the problems, the corresponding strengthening of the Local Government Organizations for emergency was made
