The legislature Wednesday created a sixth district for the Cantón de Mora. The canton is best known by one of its major communities, Ciudad Colón.
The new district is Quitirrisí. The action was taken by the Comisión con Potestad Legislativa Plena III, a subdivision of the full legislature that has the power to pass relatively non-controversial measures.
The creation of the new district will give residents of that area representation in the municipal government.
