Merida Yucatan.- Noise continues to be a problem that afflicts residents in the center of Mérida, who have turned to municipal authorities to address it.
In this regard, Federico Sauri Molina, director of Urban Development, reported that from August to October he received 25 complaints from citizens against various establishments that are not complying with the guidelines to avoid noise pollution.
He indicated that, of these reports, four have been suspensions due to the fact that important anomalies were found, for which a fine of 25 thousand pesos was applied to the offenders.
