Sosua municipality is neglected by the Government
PUERTO PLATA – The business and hotel sector of the municipality of Sosúa, reported that this destination of the North Coast was abandoned long ago by the government, because after the three government periods major development works in economic and social sectors that were promised, have not been executed yet.
It cited that among the major works is the construction of the Plaza de Vendors on the beach of Sosúa, building public hospital for Sosua and Cabarete; the renovation of the center of the tourist district of Cabarete and completion of the treatment plant that will collect wastewater and prevent fluids drop in the ocean.
Government only see mistakes in Sosúa, as the agreement with the municipal council for underground electric cables in the happy “path” even cost tens of millions of pesos. For almost 4 years of being initiated it has not advanced, and from the technical point of view it does not meet the requirements. It may be an investment of many that only serves to divert money into the coffers of private individuals.
Another reality that shows the lack of interest from the Government in this tourist town is the lack of water drainage system, sewage system, and storm system, because of this, water gets frequently contaminated with feces and runs along main streets. As an expense of tens of millions there was an outfall built over a decade ago, which never worked and only served to enrich politicians and business groups.
Moreover, the installation of meters for the collection of drinking water by CORAAPLATA which in most cases is the most aberrant and blatant scam, as there are sectors in Sosua, where people for more than 3 months have not received drinking water, but they are forced to pay 1000 pesos a month without receiving the service just because someone invented that by simply placing a meter.
