And finally, this evening: San Ignacio/Santa Elena Town Mayor Earl Trapp, Jr. has announced his council’s decision to install what are called vectors as a safety measure on Buena Vista Hill in the municipality. Considered one of the steepest hills in the town, Buena Vista Hill was where Herman Valdez, a town council employee died in a traffic incident. Since his tragic demise, the council is trying to avoid a repeat occurrence. Mayor Trapp told Love News that while turning the area into a one-way street was an initial knee-jerk reaction, he believes the vectors can help.
The Mayor stressed that he will not turn the area into a one-way street because it would affect business activity in the area. We will have more from our discussion with the Mayor in tomorrow’s news.
