The President of Hostemur, Jesús Jiménez, has asked for prudence when it comes to opening the hotel business from May 9, the date on which the state of alarm ends in Spain. “It is true that that day the limitations end, but also that we are still in a pandemic,” said Jiménez, adding that “the opening must be done little by little; not go from nothing to everything ».
Jiménez made these statements minutes before the meeting called by the mayor of Murcia, José Antonio Serrano, with representatives of the sector and with several councilors from the municipal government team. Serrano indicated that from the City Council “Everything possible will be done to help the sector continue with its work”, and has regretted that hotels, bars and restaurants in the municipality have been the “worst have passed” by the pandemic.
The president of Hostemur took advantage of the meeting to ask tax exemption, direct aid and “act on the limitation of some ordinances.” At the meeting he was accompanied by the president of the Association of Cafes and Bars, José María Rubiales; and the general secretary of Hostemur, Laura Mateo. On behalf of the City Council, the councilors for Public Roads, Employment and Economic Management, Juan Fernando Hernández, Juan Vicente Larrosa and Enrique Lorca have also participated.
The mayor noted that the 100% exemption from the terrace occupancy fees, which will remain in effect throughout this year, allowed “about a million euros to go directly into the pockets” of the owners of the bars
