Municipality muted on demolitions

By Rommel Téllez of the A.M. Costa Rica staff

After a four week follow up, the Municipalidad de Carrillo in Guanacaste has not yet delivered the information of what developments are at risk of imminent demolition.

Despite several calls and emails to the legal director of the entity, A.M. Costa Rica still has no access to verify if there is a list of projects or constructions ready to be taken down by municipal authorities for not having the proper permits.

On May 3, the municipality demolished several pools and constructions in the Carrillo canton for allegedly missing the proper paperwork. This led to the complaints by owners and neighbors, who claimed those permits were not required 10 or 15 years ago.

The municipal council also tried to halt the demolitions the following week but the mayor vetoed the initiative to continue with the planned demolitions.

As of today, responses have stopped and silence and unanswered calls seem to have become the norm.
