Welcome to Puerto Vallarta News Today, where we bring you the latest news and events from one of the most picturesque towns in Mexico. We've got some stories today that we're sure you'll find interesting.
Let's start with the Los Muertos Pier, which continues to be forgotten, with bars missing on the railings. It seems that nobody is paying attention to this beautiful pier, which is increasingly deteriorating. We hope the authorities take note and do something about it.
Speaking of debts, the former mayor, Luis Michel, is considering giving land to pay off the debt with Ipejal. We're not sure if this is a good idea or not, but we'll keep you updated.
In other news, water cuts have been happening, but many people don't seem to know about them. Users demand better communication from Seapal to keep them informed. We can understand why they're frustrated; nobody wants to be without water, especially in this heat.
Moving on to the streets of Puerto Vallarta, Los Tules Avenue in Fluvial Vallarta is contaminated with garbage, and garbage bags are piling up. We hope the authorities can clean up this area before it becomes a health hazard.
Firefighters had to put out a fire in a vacant lot after a subject set it alight and fled. We're glad that nobody was hurt, and we hope that the authorities catch the perpetrator.
In more positive news, starting in April, Vallarta will have a new flight route to Durango. TAR will begin a new Durango-Puerto Vallarta flight, which is great news for tourists and locals alike.
However, the crime traffic light shows that insecurity in Puerto Vallarta is on the rise. Extortion and rape are serious issues that need to be addressed, and we hope that the authorities take action to make the city safer for everyone.
Emiliano Zapata Street in El Pitillal is closed for patron saint festivities, which is always a fun time for locals and tourists alike. We hope everyone has a great time and stays safe during the celebrations.
Profe Michel has exhorted everyone to take action for better mobility at an event on mobility. We agree that we need to improve our infrastructure to make it easier for people to get around the city.
Finally, citizens are complaining about the state of the bicycle lanes. Neighbors and cyclists are asking for the recovery of the bicycle lane and the stop in Portales. We hope the authorities listen to their concerns and take action.
That's it for today's news from Puerto Vallarta. We'll be back soon with more stories from this beautiful town.
