The City is taking preventative measures for the 2019 hurricane season
The director of the Federal Maritime Terrestrial Zone (ZOFEMAT) agency, Kerem Pinto Aguilar, said these activities include checking, touring and cleaning the beaches and tourist areas. This is in addition to the efforts and strategies of other municipal agencies such as the Department of Civil Protection and Firefighters and the Department of Municipal Public Services. They are working in coordination with these departments, and she noted that they rely more on the Public Services agency who prune trees along the main streets to reduce the risk of their being demolished in high winds, if their foliage is less dense. .
An Isla Verde is one that supports sports so that more children, youths and adults can stand out and represent us with pride.

There are now three "Barcos Caribe" ferries moored in Isla Mujeres, which are reportedly for sale, but there is conjecture about the possibility of them operating between the island and Puerto Juarez.
Firefighters quickly extinguished a fire in a private apartment near Mundaca Hacienda, with no injuries and only material damages. It was attributed to 'imprudent' electrical wiring which caused a short circuit. (photos)
Yesterday, between 4 & 5 am, a car crashed thru the gate at the southern fence of the Naval base. The driver abandoned the vehicle & hasn't been located yet. The Navy intends to file a legal claim for the damages. No one was on duty in the guard tower that was hit & the vehicle was taken to the impound yard in Cancun. They parked a big truck in the gate driveway for now. It's presumed the car was traveling at excessive speed from south to north & suspected that alcohol may have played a part. (photos)
From Por Esto :
Lack of resolution of boat motor thefts
Preventative actions for Hurricane Season
Use of sunscreens is discouraged
Apartment fired blamed on negligence
Good recovery of sand on North Beach
In 2007, a dozen large reinforced plastic geotubes were installed off the shores between the end of Hidalgo and Rueda Medina. The ones on the west side weren't maintained and deflated, and the sand that had been gained disappeared quickly in 2010. The concessionaires regretted not maintaining them.
Should have urban transportation in November
The taxi drivers want City officials to look into a situation of five or six agents renting golf carts irregularly, allegedly, of whom two are former taxi drivers. The agents wait in the beach area to sublet carts to tourists and then walk them to the rental office. A taxi driver explained "This is not allowed, they are competing irregularly." (Agents offering tourism services and products must have permits from the City and they have assigned locations and schedules.)
Isla Mujeres news briefs
The municipal Director of Ecology and the Environment offered to resume the plan to register all the pets in Isla Mujeres, requiring each owner to take full responsibility, in accordance with the law and animal protection regulations. Dr. Delfino Guevara was given an award for his 20 years of work on the control of stray animals. The Citizen Committee will be activated and the campaign can begin after preparation meetings. Complaints can be made to the Prosecutor's Office against those who mistreat or kill animals, and Ecology will support whistle blowers, he said.
