Puerto Vallarta News Brief on 25 March 2023
Stay up to date with the latest news from Puerto Vallarta. From donkey sculptures to UN conferences, we cover it all! Read on about the city by the sea.
Welcome to today's edition of Puerto Vallarta News, where we bring you the latest updates from the sunny city by the sea. Our top story today is about a new addition to Olas Altas - a donkey sculpture! That's right, folks, the city council has announced that they will be installing a donkey sculpture in the second section of the boardwalk. We don't have all the details yet, but we're sure it will be a sight to behold.
Moving on to more serious news, it seems that the city council and OPDs are in hot water over their failure to comply with Verificación Responsible. That's a big word, we know, but it means that they haven't been verifying their vehicles properly. The only exception is DIF, which has been following the rules. We hope the city council and OPDs can get their act together soon!
In other news, the DIF Puerto Vallarta has been in the spotlight recently for charging 500 pesos for therapies to "non-subjects of social assistance." We're not sure what that means exactly, but it doesn't sound very fair. We'll be keeping an eye on this story to see how it develops.
Meanwhile, the Vallarta police officers are getting some much-needed training in the search for missing persons. We're glad to see that the police are taking their duties seriously and are working to keep the community safe.
On the international stage, SEAPAL directors have been participating in the UN Water Conference 2023. We're proud to see our city represented at such an important event and hope that their contributions will help make the world a better place.
Back home, there have been reports of a water discharge that's flooding the first square of Downtown Vallarta. We hope the authorities can get this sorted out soon, as nobody likes a waterlogged street.
Speaking of authorities, the Treasury Commission of the City Council of Puerto Vallarta will be analyzing the maintenance costs of highway 544 if it is municipalized. We're not exactly sure what that means, but we're guessing it has something to do with money. We'll keep you posted!
Last but not least, motorists are being asked to take precautions along the Tourist Route, as cyclists are out in force. We're glad to see that people are getting out and about and enjoying all that our beautiful city has to offer.
That's all for today's Puerto Vallarta News. We hope you learned something new about our wonderful city. Stay tuned for more updates!
