The traditional cutting of the King's cake was led by the Mayor and the City Council with a large number of  City officials in attendance. In his speech the mayor expressed his best wishes for a new year full of successes and asked his colleagues to include improved service to the citizens of Isla Mujeres among their New Years resolutions. He also shared King's cake with state officials, including those of the General Hospital, thanking them for the hard work they do that benefits the citizens of Isla Mujeres, and he noted it was Nurses Day and thanked the women and men who provide this service daily.
   The Mayor's wife, who is the honorary President of the DIF, also participated in Kings Day activities including the cutting of the cake at the Senior Citizen's club. She announced the start of "Friday Night Movies" for the seniors.

The increase is estimated to begin in early to March and to increase the fares for residents by six percent, after two years of absorbing increasing costs without raising rates. The drivers do not charge a VAT, but they are affected by the increase when they purchase parts. The rate for local residents would increase from 13 to 14 pesos (This is an 8% increase.  13p + 8%= 14p vs 13p + 6%  = 13.8p.)
   It has not been determined if the increase for tourists will be the same percentage, or if it will be closer to ten percent.

The fishing cooperatives had a cordial meeting with  Q Roo SAGARPA representative Manuel Cardenas Magana last weekend to discuss the infrastructure needs of the cooperatives Caribe, Patria & Progreso, and Laugna Makax.
    The President of the cooperative Caribe said they need a palapa at the end of their fishing pier. The president of the cooperative Patria & Progreso said their wooden pier of ~40 meters needs rehabilitation. The representative of Laguna Makax cooperative also wants their pier rehabilitated, which is smaller than the one just mentioned.
   They were advised each cooperative will need to contribute 30 percent, and the federal and state governments will contribute 40 and 30 percent respectively. The SAGARPA representative expects to secure the funds for these projects in the next few months, because the process was begun last year.

Tensa “partida” de rosca [+] Ver mas
During the ceremonial cutting of the Kings cake celebrations, the Mayor asked his colleagues to redouble their efforts to provide tangible results. PE says this is amid growing public restlessness, upon completion of 100 days by this PRI administration, who returned after six years of PAN governance.  The mayor acknowledged shortcomings in the areas of urban cleanliness, lighting, security, and social services and called for further efforts and responsibility from his directors.

The seven year plan to improve downtown with road renovations & removal of overhead lines has not gone as planned. The plan from 2007 included renovations of Hidalgo, Juárez, Guerrero, López Mateos and the main street/. malecón Rueda Medina, as well as the adjacent streets  Bravo, Morelos, Madero, Abasolo, Matamoros and Carlos Lazo. The work was done on Hidalgo and Rueda Medina, except for the burial of the overhead lines.
       The city budget includes funds of 3.8 million pesos for the monitoring, management, maintenance, and cleaning of the federal zone (ZOFEMAT), but has no resources from the  following programs: Tu Casa (housing), Habitat (housing), Rescuing Public Spaces, and the Metropolitan Fund.  It is noted there are sidewalks in need of repair.
