Port of Chiquilá looking to become the state’s 12th municipality

Chiquilá, Q.R. — The Port of Chiquilá could become the state’s 12th municipality. On Friday, Mayor Joel Pinto Álvarez, reported that he is hoping the town will become its own municipality.

With that comes additional resources, which he says, would be used to build the northern communities.

The main activities for the Port of Chiquilá are fishing and tourism. The intent to become an independent municipality is being supported by the sub-delegations of Solferino and San Ángel, populations that, for years, have had city hall deficiencies.

Pinto Álvarez says he has already delivered the formal petition to the State Congress to be analyzed and raised before the Forum so that the Port of Chiquilá can be its own municipality, separate from the municipality of Lázaro Cárdenas.

He reported that the the Port of Chiquilá has the fundamental services and meets the socioeconomic and number of inhabitants established by law to do so.
