Through a telephone call, Puerto Vallarta’s mayor Arturo Dávalos Peña was informed by Sedatu’s secretary, Román Mayer Falcón, that the 650 million pesos that the federal government allocated to priority areas of Puerto Vallarta will be applied to the work of Line 3 of the Light Rail in Guadalajara.
With this decision, more than 50 thousand vallartenses in extreme poverty will have to wait until next year for the government of Andrés Manuel López Obrador to re-allocate resources for priority works such as electrification, potable water and urbanization.
Within the projects, whose studies had already been carried out by the National Polytechnic Institute (IPN), there were also actions to regulate the land, thus benefiting the people of Vallatenses who live in the marginal areas of this beach destination.
In a call to his cell phone, Román Mayer Falcón told Dávalos Peña that the 650 million pesos that the federal government earmarked would no longer reach Puerto Vallarta, at least not this year, because they were reassigned to the works in the state capital.
After the call, which was registered one day after the IPN gave the Municipality the result of the studies for the application of the funds, the mayor has not received official notification from the federal or state government.
Between Thursday and next Saturday, Dávalos Peña will hold a meeting with the governor of the state, Enrique Alfaro Ramírez, to discuss the issue and look for some management alternatives.
