To ensure that more and more students are aware of and have access to municipal programs aimed at improving their quality of life and promoting their well-being, Mayor Renán Barrera Concha presented some of the 300 strategies and actions offered by the Municipality for young people and their families.
During the presentation of the event “Ayuntamiento en mi Tecnológico” (City Hall at my Technological Institute), held at the Instituto Tecnológico de Mérida (ITM) Campus Poniente, the Mayor emphasized that the Municipality has programs and actions to develop the potential of the student community and strengthen their academic skills.
He added that he will also work together with state authorities and school administrators to address the main requests for services and support to improve the students’ environment.
Additionally, the Mayor announced that they will expand the public lighting network in the vicinity, and include this institution in the “Puntos Verdes” (Green Points) program. Furthermore, they will coordinate efforts between municipal and state authorities to address public transportation issues.
Regarding support and scholarships, Barrera Concha invited students to submit their applications to analyze the options for providing assistance, as was done with the members of the ITM’s Robotics Club, “Lobots,” who received support to participate in a national event.
He highlighted that, in response to the needs of the university community, “Ayuntamiento en mi Tecnológico” set up booths with information about scholarships, prescription glasses, computer acquisition facilities, and even financial support through programs such as Micromer, among others.
Among the presented programs, he highlighted the “Parques en Línea” (Parks Online) program, which operates in 208 public spaces in the Municipality, providing students with the opportunity to carry out their academic tasks. These spaces are also used by the public for online procedures.
