No reasons provided by City Council on the construction delay of new Cozumel post office

Cozumel, Q.R. — Work on the new Cozumel Post Office remains at a standstill after the old building was demolished in November. However, staff from the Municipality’s Public Works Directorate have no information regarding the delay.

The construction of the new Cozumel Post Office has been at a standstill for nearly two months. The new building, which was set for completion for February of 2023, has not been started.

Carlos Daniel Pomol Gómez, the Municipal Public Works Directorate, says he does not have information on the reasons for the delay since the City Council is only responsible for matters relating to construction permits.

The building, which was demolished in early November, was supposed to be finished in February of this year. At the time, Rocío Bárcena Molina, who heads Correos de México, announced the 2023 completion date.

The construction announcement for a new building was made with both Molina and Cozumel mayor, Juanita Alonso Marrufo, who is currently in Madrid attending the Tourism Fair.

The old post office building, which was demolished November 8, was built in 1972.
