Mayor José Luis Fábrega affirms that he will complete the works of the North Municipal Park

The mayor of the capital district, José Luis Fábrega, assured this Monday that he will finish the construction of the Parque Municipal del Norte, as he has done with seven municipal projects that were unfinished and two others that come from previous administrations, such as the Pacora market and the of New Town.

He assured that they will finish all the unfinished works “for the benefit of all the residents”.

Fábrega’s statements come after it became known that, when responding to a request for information made by residents of northern Panama, the mayor told them that they had taken steps to resume the work, but due to a series of factors they agreed with the construction company on a contract settlement process.

Those factors were: high financing costs and default interest payments, additional repairs, constant vandalism and high cost of materials due to Covid-19.

“According to the above, it was not feasible for the Mayor’s Office of Panama to assume the additional costs that the reactivation of the project would generate,” says the note, dated February 25, 2022.

Another aspect that the mayor specifies in the request for information is that the project is being built with funds from decentralization and that the amount owed to the contractor -according to the latest accounts presented- is about $1.2 million.

This work began in the last administration, when the mayor was José Isabel Blandón, and was developed on a 20-hectare plot of land in the community of San Vicente, district of Chilibre, at a cost of $17 million.
