Noisy Zihuatanejo

I imagine La Barra locals are divided over the issue because some are profiting from it.

But the worst part is there is NO ONE to call at the moment the offensive action is taking place. We have no functional municipal police force in Zihuatanejo, and the mayor seems to turn a blind eye to almost anything that isn't about him getting a photo op for his re-election campaign. I'm a member of the Citizen's Advisory Committee on Public Security and there is literally nothing for us to do because our most important recommendation from the moment the mayor formed the committee has been to simply APPLY THE LAWS, and he has ignored us as well as the general public in this respect. While many of us have influential friends in City Hall, it makes no difference as long as the mayor must approve everything, and the one minor achievement local residents made convincing the mayor to ban tour buses from La Ropa was overturned by the cabildo (city council) thanks to their political ambitions placing the interests of a handful of mostly illegal wandering vendors above the interests of La Ropa's residents and its hospitality industry that has millions of dollars invested in their respective businesses. I guess they should've simply offered a hefty bribe to the cabildo.
