Through a telephone call, Mayor Arturo Dávalos Peña was informed by the Secretary of the Sedatu, Román Mayer Falcón, that the 650 million pesos that the federal government would allocate to the priority areas of Puerto Vallarta will be used for the construction of Line 3 of the Light Rail in Guadalajara.

With this decision, more than 50 thousand people from Vallarta in extreme poverty will have to wait until next year for the government of Andrés Manuel López Obrador to re-allocate resources for priority works such as electricity, potable water and urbanization. Within the projects, there were also actions to regulate the land, benefiting the people from Vallarta, who live in the marginal areas of this beach destination.

In a call to his cell phone, Román Mayer Falcón told Dávalos Peña that the 650 million pesos that the federal government would no longer be given, at least this year, because they were reassigned to the state capital.

After the call, which was made one day after the IPN gave the Municipality the result of the studies for the application of these 650 million, the mayor has not received official notification from the federal or state government. Dávalos Peña will hold a meeting with the governor of the state, Enrique Alfaro Ramírez, to discuss the issue and look for some management alternatives.
