SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, Dec. 15 (EUROPA PRESS) –
The Cabildo de Tenerife currently has works underway in 13 municipalities of the island for a global amount of 19 million euros, in execution of the Municipal Cooperation Plan 2018-2021, for which it denies the imbalance between municipalities that have denounced this Wednesday the mayors of San Miguel de Abona, El Rosario, Santiago del Teide, Arico, La Guancha and Santa Cruz de Tenerife.
The president, Pedro Martín, points out in a note that these are large-scale works that are “strategic” for the socioeconomic development of the municipalities and are related to sanitation and water purification, the improvement of the sewerage network, the expansion of the drinking water distribution tanks and branches and the fitting out of municipal buildings and sports infrastructures, among others.
The municipalities in which it is intervening right now are Adeje, Arona, Granadilla, Güímar, La Matanza de Acentejo, Los Realejos, San Miguel de Abona, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Santa Úrsula, Santiago del Teide, Los Silos, Vilaflor and El Sauzal, where a work for 734,683 euros has already been completed and another is in progress.
The insular president highlights that “of these 13 municipalities, out of a total of 9 the PSOE does not govern, but other parties, 62% of the Cabildo’s investment in a total of 15 works goes to municipalities in which other parties govern Therefore, it is very surprising that the opposition wants to convey to the public the false message that the Cabildo de Tenerife favors some municipalities to the detriment of others “.
Martín insists that the corporation guarantees the balance of its investments on the island, as has been shown in the distribution of the items for employment and social action, which have been made in accordance with the Fecam criteria.
“These municipal cooperation actions are just one example of the island’s backbone work that the Cabildo has started in this mandate and that prioritizes works where they are most needed,” he says.
For his part, the island councilor for Municipal Cooperation and Housing, Zebenzui Chinea, points out that this investment balance also prevails in the Priority Works Plan, approved this year for municipalities with fewer than 20,000 inhabitants, which represents a total investment of 3, 3 million euros.
17 municipalities benefit from this plan under the criteria of the population, specifically 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.
The counselor explains that this program is aimed at economic and administrative cooperation with the municipalities for the drafting of projects, direction and execution of works related to the operation of municipal public services.
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.
