 The City recently signed an agreement with SEDUVI (Department of Urban Development and Housing) to solve a problem that has worried families who received Letters of Assignment eleven years ago for residential and commercial lots in Ciudad Mujeres. The Mayor explained that the City has opened a window for receiving these documents which will be sent to SEDUVI, and that the City and State authorities are working together to provide a solution, for the benefit of island families. He noted that the process will probably take a long time, but they have started toward a solution.

  Twelve workers are waiting for a response from the Director of the State Institute for Youth and Adult Education, and say they have not been paid in three quincenas (15 day periods). The workers include two educational promoters (promotores educativos), six advisors, two technicians, and two other workers, who have complied with the regulations that require productivity and goals for each case. They say they have also met the requirements to design mechanisms by which each student becomes more aware, and to follow up individually, so that the students finish their course and receive a certificate.
      They said last Wednesday, they were told to come to Cancun at 5pm to be paid their back wages, but when one of them confirmed an hour before, they were told the money was teady and offered to cross personally to Isla to pay them, which has not happened, yet.

Celebration at Boca Iglesia church & schedule for patron saint festivities   
Magna celebración en el convento de Boca Iglesia. [+] Ver masFull article at this link
    The Parish Priest, Raul Sanchez Alonso announced there will be a commemorative event in May at the now abandoned Boca Iglsia church, for the 500th anniversary of the arrival of the Spanish to the region, and the foundation of the church. This will include a procession from Isla Mujeres of the Virgin of Immaculate Conception to that site. He said preparations have already begun to secure permits and plan safety measures with the small boats which enter this inhospitable site through the mangroves.
  Por Esto notes they have previously published information about the property being in the hands of an individual who is selling it for dollars, but presumably a federal rescue project is under way to make it an archaeological sight, with proposals submitted by archeologists, historians, and local authorities.
    No specific date in May has been set to carry out this 70 km. procession. It will be the longest procession of this kind, since the Virgin of Caridad del Cobre has been taken annually, since 1999, across the 30 kilometers to the fishermen's camp at  Isla Contoy National Park
   Historians agree that it is likely that the first battle between Maya and Spanish took place in March 1517. Because of this, during the first days of March, Isla Mujeres annually celebrates the arrival of Francisco Hernandez de Cordoba during his journey to the Yucatan peninsula, from Cuba.
   It is presumed that this Franciscan structure is located at (or literally atop) the Mayan building, which indicates that this site was the location of the ancient city of Ecab.
     Ecab was one of 16 Mayan señoríos (lit. kingdoms or areas ruled by lords/chiefs) , which were  located across the Yucatan peninsula, during the Post Classic period. Ecab encompassed what is now the northern part of Quintana Roo, from Felipe Carrillo Puerto.

Schedule for the Patron Saint Festivities
