The municipal president of Benito Juárez, Mara Lezama led the historic XI Ordinary Session where it was unanimously approved -among other measures- to prohibit the use of plastic bags in stores and shops, as well as ensure the fight against corruption in the municipal dependencies.
“Actually, the statistics say that in a few years, if we do not stop this excessive use of plastics, there will be more of that material than fish in the sea and that is very unfortunate. And at home, we must reinforce these values of care for the environment, ” she stressed during the Eleventh Local Ordinary Session.
In other environmental related issues, reforms and additions to the Regulation for the Prevention and Integral Management of Solid Waste were also approved, and the Regulation of Ecology and Environmental Management of Benito Juárez, which will regulate the excessive use of materials made from plastic in commercial establishments.
Municipal official Luis Pablo Bustamante Beltrán stated that after its publication in the Official City Council gazette, industries and commercial establishments will have 90 days to make the transition to alternative materials. And in case of violation of article 126 of the Regulation for the prevention and management of solid waste sanctions will be imposed.
In this regard mayor Mara Lezama congratulated the proposal of the councilor Pablo Bustamante along with other council members like Luis Humberto Aldana Navarro, for this measure.
The mayor also applauded the approval of the Regulation of Ecology, Climate Action and Environmental Protection, which proposes to make a public consultation to encourage citizen participation with proposals that could help to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions.
“There will be no more plastic straws either in restaurants or hotels of Cancun, ” she said.
Another of the reforms celebrated was the modification of several articles of the Internal Government Regulation that favor anti-corruption measures in the Benito Juárez City Council. Finally at this point the municipal president Mara Lezama called on citizens not to allow acts of corruption and denounce them.
“No one is above the law” she concluded.
