The City Council began the work prior to the rains, with an investment amounting to 90 thousand pesos
Mazatlan, Sinaloa. – Prior to the rainy season, the Mazatlan City Council carried out permanent pothole works in streets and avenues of the city, in which between 20 and 30 cubic meters of asphalt cement were placed per week, with an investment of 60 to 90 thousand pesos, reported the director of Public Works, Daniel Tirado Zamudio.
