MERIDA — In the Governor’s Palace, Gov. Rolando Zapata Bello witnessed the signing of the Municipal Bordering Agreements between the mayors of Oxkutzcab, Raúl Romero Chel, and Tekax, Joshua Couoh Tzec, as well as among their counterparts in Mérida, Mauricio Vila Dosal, Kanasín, Carlos Moreno Magaña, and Umán, Fredy Ruz Guzmán, which will be forwarded to the State Congress for approval.
The agreement was signed Tuesday, August 22, by mayors of Merida, Kanasín, Umán, Conkal and Progreso, thus defining the boundaries between the municipalities of Merida’s metropolitan area, thereby avoiding doubts as to which municipality has to attend to the demands of residents in electricity, water and other services. This includes the political demarcation and the payment of taxes.
After the signing of agreements, the municipalities involved in the overlap zone will go to the Yucatan Congress to take the decisions on the limits and thus will end one of the biggest problems that concern the residents located in this “no-man’s zone.”
In his message, Zapata Bello congratulated the signing of the agreement that puts an end to a problem that goes back 50 years in the past, such as in Huntochac.
Huntochac’s ejidal commissar, Jorge Orlando Can Uc, said that the entanglements and complexities caused them to lose opportunities. To keep developing programs for his community, however, they now have clarity and certainty about the municipality to which their community belongs, which means a major step towards development so that families can enjoy better living standards.
“We are grateful to all the authorities, because after so many years we see with satisfaction how they have made this problem their own and have set themselves the task of solving it, giving timely follow-up to the steps that led to the final resolution. Now it is up to the legislature to complete the process of legal certainty, which we are pretty sure they will do their part,” he concluded.
