Necessary improvements to the stressed infrastructure in the village will cost significant amounts of money. Obvious question is who will pay? We all love holidaying and spending extended periods of time in the south but get a little squeamish when it comes to the money part. Pretty obvious that a ongoing source of funding is needed to provide the cash to make necessary improvements to the infrastructure and to provide training and ongoing monitoring of the water quality about the village. Recently I spent over $2000 for the privilege of staying on the beach with my family for few weeks. I wish that a % of my rent could have gone directly to the cause. Seems like the word tax scares people but not sure how else enough funding will be generated to improve things like the infrastructure, ambulance and school services for the local kids. If you ( I ) choose to live or to holiday in La Man helping to pay for these essentials should not be on a voluntary basis. While I have been visiting and holidaying in Mexico since 1982 I am by far an expert in how local governments work, how they collect fees or taxes from businesses and land owners and how they interact with state governments. However, I do know that water - sewer, property and various other taxes are a fraction of what we pay at home.
