  • They should concentrate on their work, which is to provide the basic services (water, paving, sewer, collecting trash, etc) to every district of the city. Living 30 years in cde and the "neighborhood" where it is located my house all services I have mentioned were with private companies. It is regrettable, since being contributing and having taxes a day, pay for services that are not I provided. On receipt of the tax figure until they swept the sidewalk and over 30 years never even saw pass a truck of municipal garbage on our street that was paved with the help of the neighbors on the block could hire a private company and made the work of the aforementioned institution in question.

  • I like all the works carried out in the administration of Sandra Zacaria, until today, only I want to have a say in the only sense that is implementing the Lake of the Republic, is not well alrrededor being that Ciudad del Este has no output and has a single access, the same reference Avenue, was being útilizadas by many motorist, there are hospitals such as IPS TESAI, and other Sanatarios by which it circulated its ambulances, and today will only serve for rolling walkers and cyclists pedestrians that are molded artery and night serves to play the disoriented according to my umilde race opinion and precise observation. (It won't serve for quick exit must fill lomada or hazard to be sure.).
