SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, Dec. 7 (EUROPA PRESS) –
The president of the Council of Tenerife, Pedro Martín, reported this Tuesday of the approval, by the Insular Government Council, of an investment of 3.3 million in 17 municipalities of the island to carry out works of public interest “which, in addition , they will generate employment and local economy “.
Martín indicates in a note that a total of 43 actions of a priority nature will be carried out to meet the needs of those municipalities with less technical and economic capacity (those with less than 20,000 inhabitants) to guarantee the comprehensive provision of municipal public services throughout the island territory.
“We are concerned about the difficulties faced by the municipalities with a smaller population when addressing actions in their territory and this program wants to solve problems, generate employment and make the Cabildo’s presence reach more and better to all the municipalities of Tenerife “, he says.
The president details that the 17 municipalities that participate in the program are: Buenavista del Norte, Arafo, Arico, Garachico, Fasnia, La Guancha, La Matanza, El Rosario, San Juan de la Rambla, Santa Úrsula, Santiago del Teide, Los Silos, El Tanque, El Sauzal, Tegueste, La Victoria and Vilaflor. “And each of them will be able to receive a maximum of 200,000 euros per project,” he highlights.
The Priority Works Program complements the 2018-2021 Municipal Cooperation Plan, “which already has 15 works in progress spread across 13 municipalities on the island,” details the island councilor for Municipal Cooperation and Housing, Zebenzuí Chinea.
Regarding the list of works, the projects presented range from the rehabilitation of municipal infrastructures to the improvement of supply networks and lighting systems, although projects to adapt cemeteries to current regulations stand out.
Chinea emphasizes that “they are works of great importance for the municipalities, with which they are in permanent contact and that will improve the quality of life of their neighbors.”
The counselor also explains that the municipalities were asked “to deal with works that were already programmed and that they had projects already drawn up, so as not to have to wait for the approval or drafting of projects, and to continue working and investing money in the streets, even more so after the pandemic. “
