The Heritage area of the Puerto de la Cruz City Council announces the commissioning of the review, updating and assessment of the municipal inventory, which has not been updated since 1986, 36 years ago. The mayor of Porto, Marco González (PSOE), underlines the importance of having this tool “updated in a timely manner to have an exact and complete knowledge of the assets that make up the local heritage.”
This tool is key to the correct management and identification of Porto’s heritage. The inventory of assets and rights that make up the municipal heritage is, in the opinion of the local government PSOE-ACP), “an essential legal instrument for the defense and protection of municipal property.”
“With this update, better control and use of assets is guaranteed, which will help us to provide the corresponding legal certainty in municipal management and to be able to better serve the general interests of the city,” according to the councilor responsible for the area of Patrimony, Julia Navas.
The updating and maintenance of the City Council’s inventory will facilitate a more agile location of assets, with the inclusion of their economic data and the execution of amortizations. In addition, the management of the history of modifications of the goods with data and descriptions is facilitated, “which will allow its export in various formats”. The winning company, either through courses or through a face-to-face action by a local entity, will train the City Council’s workers to complete the inventory work in the future.
The updating and formalization of this Inventory of Assets and Rights “will allow for a comprehensive asset management system as a set of developed management procedures that directly or indirectly affect local assets and land management, including their impact on the general inventory and equity accounting.
