The governor of the province of Buenos Aires, Axel Kicillof, will meet again this Tuesday with the mayors of the municipalities of the Buenos Aires coast, in a meeting that will aim to analyze the progress of the coronavirus pandemic in the middle of the tourist season.
The meeting is scheduled for 10 o’clock in Santa Clara del Mar. There, the president will lead the meeting with the communal heads of the tourist municipalities in which they will analyze the number of coronavirus cases, the occupation of beds in each district and the way in which the restrictions arranged last weekend are being applied.
According to official sources, after that meeting, Kicillof will offer a press conference at the Santa Clara del Mar Cultural Center at 12:30 p.m., together with the Chief of Staff, Carlos Bianco, and the Ministers of Health, Daniel Gollan, and of Production, Augusto Costa, in which they will give an account of the health situation in Buenos Aires.
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).
“The order 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.
A week ago, Kicillof had to review some concepts of the DNU that Alberto Fernández was going to sign. 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.
This criterion is the one that reached the consensus among the coastal mayors: restriction between 1 and 6 in the morning for commercial, sports and entertainment activities, but with movement of people.
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.
“The president will ask the mayors to reinforce controls and stand firm in complying with the protocols,” they detailed from the Government.
They added that “the idea is to closely monitor the situation to allow the season to run its course, but without neglecting health.”
