To do this, instances such as Public Works, Municipal Public Services, Property Maintenance and Administration, municipal delegations and dependencies will be carrying out various operations for the safety and tranquility of visitors, as well as the commercial activity of the area.
As part of the actions that were undertaken, the rehabilitation of internal roads, the repair of access roads to the municipal cemeteries, as well as neighboring streets, the painting of the perimeter fences, the carrying out of masonry work in these enclosures, the weed trimming and general cleaning, as well as the removal of some clandestine garbage dumps located nearby.
