Engineer Castillo said that in these moments of the pandemic with this project, many people are trying to bring food to their homes. Currently the municipality has fifty laborers, the company Contractor also has another twenty workers. With all the current projects, there are about three to four hundred people working. All this when very few companies or people dont have the authorization that we have to continue to work. In theory, the municipality is the only authorized workforce. This agency is generating some semblance of commerce so that approximately 2,500 people, are helped during this COVID-29 emergency.
According to the statements made by Engineer Castillo, the heavy rains of November and December coupled with the COVID-19 pandemic, progress of the project has been delayed, thus postponing the project completion past the original project plan. Director of www.centinelainformativo.com Exenia Mann.
