“It is once again July, but it is always Guayaquil. This July may be not a controversial one, but it is never passive.” Thus began the mayor of Guayaquil, Jaime Nebot, his report to Guayaquil citizens, to whom he promised to give water service in all neighborhoods in Guayaquil by late 2012.
In his report, which lasted half an hour, the mayor said that the last eight contracts for potable water were signed a few days ago. The service will cover more than 150,000 inhabitants of neighborhoods such as Flor de Bastion and Sergio Toral.
He noted that urban regeneration has advanced strongly to those neighborhoods.
On transit, Nebot commited himself to deliver to citizens, from the middle of next year, a high technological service, and to “punish Assembly members who benefit with their bills to criminals.”
He questioned the release of murderers, kidnappers, rapists and thieves. “How long will they change the remand for ridiculous measures?,” he said. (FL)
