Karel Karika: We will rehouse all 70 people from the residential hotel on Klíšská Street
The Vice-Mayor of the central municipal department in the city of Ústí nad Labem, Karel Karika, told news server Romea.cz during the 14 June demonstration against the closure of the residential hotels there that he will arrange accommodation for all the inhabitants of the Klíšská residential hotel by the end of this month. "We warned about this situation one year ago, we were the only movement in Ústí to disagree with announcing zones where housing benefits are not able to be disbursed," Karika told ROMEA TV.
Karika also warned that City Hall has completely resigned itself to ignoring social housing development even though several buildings that would be appropriate for addressing such situations are either owned by the city or could be bought by the city. Evidence of that claim is a building purchased three years go in the Krásné Březno locality that has not yet been reconstructed, he said.
