New Isla Mujeres administration continues to move forward with garbage removal, lighting

Isla Mujeres, Q.R. — Isla Mujeres mayor says to date, 1,110 tons of garbage has been collected between the Urban Zone and the Hotel Zone on the mainland. She said the consistent collection of garbage is in keeping with her commitment to ensure the image of the municipality.

“We have already advanced 70 percent in the Continental Zone in cleaning and planting. The entire section of the Urban Zone has been attended to, especially zone two, the walkways and streets. Cleaning has also been carried out along the main avenue that covers the first frame as well as the dome of the Monte de Olivo neighborhood,” Gómez Ricalde explained.

She added that electricity for public lighting in the Oasis, La Cristiana, La Loma and El Paraíso neighborhoods has been reactivated with a total of 22 restored lights there and 220 restored lamps in the coastal area, which has brought them to a 70 percent progress rate in terms of repairs.

“We know that a lot of public lighting is needed in the Continental Zone. I am grateful for the understanding and solidarity of all the people who know that this government is just beginning and that we have been at forced marches for just over a month and a half. We are advancing with concrete actions,” she stressed.

As for the island, she said that 12,185 tons of garbage has been removed from the transfer site to the mainland. She also noted that public lighting in the Sac Bajo area has been repaired.

“Every time we light up a neighborhood, we help prevent crime,” she added.
