The company is currently conducting an information survey in the field, through a social worker from the same company, who since the first days of October has been visiting all beneficiary families, house to house.
The Mayor, Iván Campos, visited the works on Wednesday in order to know on the ground the degree of progress of the same, assessing the investment that is made in the sector, and clarifying a doubt reiterated by some neighbors who still do not have a role as their properties, but yes rights, indicating that only once the works are concluded and delivered to the Potable Water Cooperative will be able to opt for their start-up.
