Fines up to $ 3,364,000 They seem to be the deterrent where the strategy of the Province to apply greater sanitary controls and the restriction of hours between 1 in the morning and 6 in the morning for commercial activity rests.
It is one of the complex issues that you will try to guide Axel Kicillof at the meeting this Tuesday with mayors of the Atlantic Coast. Previously, the Executive put together the regulatory framework with Decree No. 8841 to enable penalties on those actions that involve “danger to safety, health and hygiene.” It empowers the municipalities as enforcement authority. It is a delegation that transfers the burden of enforcement against offenders to the municipalities, even when, in a given emergency, the provincial police must intervene as auxiliaries to the commune inspectors.
The meeting of the governor and the mayors will be in Santa Clara del Mar. As in the previous one in San Bernardo, the biggest problem, in those summer places, are “Las meeting” on the beach beyond the strict protocol. There were cases of confrontations between young people and troops, which ended in attacks on agents and patrols. Such is the case of Claromecó. Some mayors warn that certain coercion, without prior mediation, can cause these types of episodes. Signed by Martín Yeza (Pinamar) and Guillermo Montenegro (General Pueyrredón).
In the exchange of tweets between Yeza and the Minister of Health, Daniel Gollán, a certain dissociation in the applicability of the rules is revealed. The mayor objected that it was necessary to better weigh the eventual reactions of vacationers and residents of the Coast. The official reminded him that they only started on Monday.
However, no one wants to take risks with unleashing social chaos. “The ordinance must be consensual,” insist the district officials. And they look at the age group of young people. “There is scope to stimulate one’s own conscience. It is a necessary exercise before any act of force “, is another appeal that will be compared with Kicillof.

Yes, on the other hand, there is a coincidence in the observance of the restriction between 1 a.m. and 6 a.m. for commercial, sports and entertainment activities. With movement of people. It is a variant achieved by the communal chiefs in the first meeting of San Bernardo. At that time, a week ago, Kicillof had to review some concepts of the DNU that Alberto Fernández had signed. The original “sanitary curfew” had more rigidity. The President also reviewed his steps and granted the governors the power to set the criteria. The Autonomous City of Buenos Aires had anticipated in deciding that in CABA the circulation of people would be guaranteed.
The other operating agreement of the mayors and the Government is to hold “The greatest pressure” on the so-called “clandestine parties”. The operations are almost daily and incessant on weekends. La Plata, Florencio Varela, Mar del Plata, among other districts lead the payrolls.
How are fines applied? The Province has a tabulated grid according to the basic salary of the public agent registered in the labor regime of Law N ° 10,430. The charge against the offender can reach 500 accumulated wages. You can only appeal after payment.
In any case, the municipalities only use the Buenos Aires Executive decree as a safeguard, in this emergency, because they have their own Contraventional Code that empowers this type of pecuniary penalties. To take an example, the municipality of the provincial capital establishes in Article N ° 104 of the Civil Code a pecuniary punishment for those who organize “clandestine parties” in bars, lounges, or fifth houses. All are prohibited. The penalty can be up to $ 2 million. For the massive raise $ 1 million. In those cases, in addition to the organizers, the monetary constraint is for the owners of the property and the entire consortium when it comes to buildings.

It is the legal basis that they will have to control the time restriction. 89% of the towns of the Province, that is, 118 of the 135, were involved in the measures since Monday. These are the municipalities that are in phase 3 and 4. With the new scheme, only 17 municipal administrations will not be required to apply the regulations.
As anticipated Clarion in due course, the method of the Ministry of Health will continue with the system of phases for the authorization of activities and services in each municipality. There are 109 in phase 4 and 9 in phase 3.
“In the municipalities that are in phases 3 and 4, all commercial, artistic, sports, cultural, social and recreational activities will be suspended between 1 in the morning and 6 in the morning, except for manufacturing, agricultural and all those defined activities. as essential according to current regulations ”, determined the provincial administration.
It was also resolved that from now on they will be reduced social, recreational and family activities for groups of up to 10 people in closed and open spaces. In addition, the use of urban passenger transport will be restricted to people affected by activities and services defined as essential.
After the meeting, in Santa Clara del Mar, Kicillof would publicly raise the scope of the measures under development. There will be Montenegro, Yeza, Gustavo Barrera (Villa Gesell), Cristian Cardozo (Party of the Coast), Sebastián Ianatuony (Miramar) and Jorge Paredi (Mar Chiquita).
