Mugla Metropolitan Municipality Leader Dr. Osman Gürün attended the 53rd ordinary assembly meeting of Muğla Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Leader Gurun, who gave information to the council members about the investments made by the Metropolitan Municipality throughout the province, also answered the questions of the council members.
“WE ARE AN AGRICULTURAL CITY WITH BAŞAT WORKS AND PRODUCTIVE LANDS”
“AS MUĞLA, WE CANNOT RECEIVE A RETURN FOR THE TAX WE PAY”
Stating that the tax paid by Muğla and the investment received from the central government are of great interest to everyone, Leader Dr. Osman Gürün “The tax paid by Muğla in 2021 is 5 Billion 931 Million 360 TL. We are in the position of the 18th province that pays the most taxes in Turkey. In 2021, the central government’s investment in Muğla is 384 million 186 thousand TL, and we are in the 34th province in terms of investment. Muğla does not deserve this. There is an injustice here. We want to see the investments we deserve in return for the tax we pay in our city,” he said.
“THE GROUND WATER THAT PROVIDES WATER NEEDED IN MUGLA CENTER WILL DAMAGE”
While criticizing the expansion of mineral exploration areas, Gurun said that it would harm water resources. Gurun said, “There is a mineral exploration license in 60 percent of our city. We have 3 thermal power plants. They began to search for coal with the gallery system. We have started the necessary legal effort as it will damage the underground waters that provide the water need of the center of Muğla. Here, I say it again, the Ministry of Water should be established in our country,” he said.
