The director of the Parks and Museums Department, Fausto Cahuich Bates said that at this time there is not a plan for the rescue and maintenance of the 23 metal sculptures at Punta Sur, which have suffered from corrosion due to the sea air. They were installed on December 8, 2001 to welcome the new millenium, and the one named "Insurgent IV", by American artist Bruce Beasley, has corroded and fallen down. The Director said he hopes that in the course of this year, they will be able to present a project that addresses the needs of the promoters of the sculpture park. It is noted that despite the condition of the sculptures, the municipality charges an entry fee.

  The leader of the Chamber of Commerce in Isla Mujeres, Juan Carrillo Figueroa said this slump occurs every year, and owners cope by having agreements with workers for 'solidarity days' of volunteer vacations so the employer does not have to fire workers. Some businesses close temporarily and make improvements. He noted that it is still hurricane season and it is unknown if there will be severe weather before it ends, and that everyone should be prepared.

Esperan localicen con o sin vida a “Soyita”[+] Ver mas
The family of the man who fell overboard from the shrimp boat "Marengo" are not giving interviews, and the relatives continue to wait, hoping the authorities will find their loved one, dead or alive. Friends of the victim say he was called "Soyita" because that was his father's nickname, and he moved to Cancun from Merida to work to support his family. He had relatives who worked at the pier where the shrimp boats dock, and he began working as a shrimp fisherman over a month ago.

Basura, herencia que se sigue arrastrando[+] Ver mas
The staff of the Public Services Department explained that the waste collection vehicles have not been maintained under the previous administration, and this is the reason that garbage collection cannot be provided efficiently. Employees say there is an urgent need to invest resources in at least two of the trucks. There is growing annoyance among some of the citizens about the need to improve trash service.
