The motion presented by Dolores Espinosa, councilor of United We Can to be debated in the Plenary of the Santa Cruz City Council tomorrow, for the reopening of the public baths in the Plaza del Príncipe, has achieved the support of all municipal groups, therefore that will go ahead as an institutional motion. In his proposal, Espinosa suggests that the maintenance of these urinals could be carried out by people from groups especially punished for lack of work, such as youth, because, as he states in his motion, youth unemployment in Tenerife presents devastating data: 9,977 people under the age of 25 years old are unemployed, which represents 70.1% of the population in this age group.
The mayor explains that this emblematic space of the city, cataloged as historical heritage, was inaugurated in October 1860, and, therefore, has more than 160 years of history, continuing today as a place of recreation for citizens. “But it lacks something necessary for all people: under the square are the public toilets located on José Murphy Street, which were once served by a lady who kept them clean and gave a fantastic service to citizens and visitors. ”, Stated the UP councilor, Dolores Espinosa.
