Meropi Ydraiou and Stelios Petsas discussed the evaluation of the proposals for inclusion in the “Antonis Tritsis” funding programme at a meeting they had in Athens last week.
 
At a press conference, the Mayor said that she called for priority to be given to the Gouvia - Kontokali school centre and the creation of sports facilities.
 
The Mayor also asked Mr. Petsas for additional funding from the Ministry's programme regarding school buildings, especially the ones in the town that are facing serious problems, such as the Vocational High School (EPAL).
 
At the meeting, Mr. Petsas said he planned to visit Corfu on November 15 in order to see the condition of the town's school buildings in person.
     
The Municipality’s submitted proposals for funding projects from the “Antonis Tritsis” programme concern important development and other projects regarding school buildings, sports, solid waste, culture, protection of schools from earthquakes, rural roads, electromobility and the maturity of studies for Vidos Island.
