Puerto Vallarta infrastructure funds bring electricity to hundreds of families
Electrical works are progressing in eight communities in the rural area of Puerto Vallarta at a rapid pace. Mayor Arturo Dávalos Peña visited the area to confirm progress on low and high voltage lines so hundreds of families can have this basic service in their home.
“With these works we are transforming life to all those who live in the colonies El Aguacate, Turquoise Azul, El Encanto, Valle Encantado, Esmeralda, Los Montes, Rancho Nacar, Los Agaves, among others. We made that commitment and their lives are about to change, they will be able to have their refrigerator, their blender, their oven, and fan,” he said during his visit to the community of El Aguacate.
Some neighbors took the opportunity to recognize and thank the mayor for bringing this basic service to these areas of the municipality that most require it, such as Mrs. María Teresa López Fregoso, who said it was something they waited for a long time.
“We are very grateful to the mayor who has remembered us, and for so many years that we have been without electricity and many older people who have endured the heat and mosquitoes. All this is very good and so you are seeing the colonies that really need these services. Thank you very much for supporting us,” she said.
Also, Gabriel Basilio Martínez, who stressed that although he and his family have only a few months in the area, these works benefit “many people who live here, who have already had years here, it is a great benefit for them.”
He thanked the government for turning its eyes towards these more remote colonies and bring “the help here to the colony and especially for us to have electricity and improve our lives more than anything”.
During the tour, the mayor recalled that once this work is completed, the Federal Electricity Commission will be in charge of delivering services to the communities.
These works are carried out as part of the package of works approved for this year within the Contribution Fund for Municipal Social Infrastructure, for more than $32 million pesos. Vallarta Municipal officials and the general secretary of the City Council, Víctor Bernal Vargas, accompanied the mayor in this supervision.
