Tulum, Q. R. — The municipal government of Tulum will leave more than 65 million peso in city coffers for the new incoming administration this week. Víctor Mas Tah says the money will be left to pay for the City Council’s payroll and operation of public services.
He also said that his administration is not leaving public debt, stressing the responsible management of public finances and the planned use of resources in the face of the health crisis.
“It was hard work, but thanks to the support of the people and the support of the federal and state governments, we strengthened the administration and improved the quality of life in the municipality with public projects in neighborhoods and communities which are the heritage of Tulum residents,” Mas Tah said.
He explained that in the face of financial adversity due to the crisis brought by the Covid-19 pandemic, the municipal administration requested a short-term loan in the amount of 40 million peso to cover mainly expenses and payroll in order not to lay off workers or reduce wages, but that financial liability was paid in full as of May 17 of this year.
