San Germán Mayor Virgilio Olivera Olivera said Tuesday that his administration is allocating at least $1 million annually to repair dilapidated roads in the municipality.
“After nearly 20 years of total neglect, we continue to work responsibly with the disastrous condition of our public roads and municipal roads,” said Olivera Olivera, who emphasized that “from our first year of administrative management in the municipal seat, we are allocating at least $1,000,000 annually to paving the roads.”
“Little by little we are solving the serious problem that we inherited in the different sectors, although we recognize that there are still many other roadways to attend to,” the mayor said. “For us, it is humanly and economically impossible to attend to them all at the same time.”
The mayor said that as part of the repaving projects, work has already been done in Pin.
Quiñones, La Luz (Tea), Higüero, Villa Juanita, Toño Ufret and El Cotto, Los Veteranos, Julio Renta, Metropolitano, Camino Los Pinos, La Islita, Cuesta Colorá, Parcelas La Tea and Camino La Cancha, and Urb. La Monserrate, among many other sectors.
“In addition, we have also spread more than 9,057 tons of tar throughout the City of San Germán,” the mayor said.
