With the pier closed some boats are once again loading passengers at the small pier behind the offices of the Capitanía del Puerto on the channel that leads to Laguna Las Salinas. Boat captains are complaining that the lagoon is once again in need of dredging even though the last municipal administration allegedly spent over 35 MILLION PESOS supposedly to do just that. Obviously it was wasted money and a wasted effort. :ponder:

Oh, they dredged a channel all right, just not the entire lagoon which is what they led the public to believe to justify the millions spent. They spent enough money in this that instead of renting the equipment they could have bought the dredging and other equipment used, dredged the entire lagoon and still had money leftover. But the state auditors get kickbacks to look the other way. The federal government is already withholding funds from Zihuatanejo because expenditures under the previous administration have not been properly accounted for. So the corrupt steal and the people pay. Wonderful system if you're a crook! :rant:
