“This puts us in great difficulty”

The mayor of Castres Pascal Bugis is “not at all in agreement with this decision”. Especially since everything was ready and the Castres were happy to be able to come together as in each final phase of the CO since 2010. “This puts us in great difficulty”, continues the elected official. Especially since the mayor does not fully understand the pretext of the heat wave. “Temperatures of 40 degrees we know that in Castres and we will know others”.
