Sofía Medeles (Ajijic, Jal)– «Pueblos Unidos de la Ribera» charges that the Urrea family in Ajijic has once again erected an illegal fence in Federal land along the shoreline of Lake Chapala. The activist group is now preparing complaints and vows to take it down themselves if the Federal authorities don’t act.

The «anti-fences» group announced to the media that this new invasion is more serious than the last ones because the fence is outside of any area available for a permit or concession and is now actually in the Lake because of the rise in the lake’s surface. They added that the family showed no proof of a permit or concession allowing them to erect a fence.

The fence in question is made of posts embedded in concrete and strung with barbed wire, replacing the cyclone fence removed earlier. The group claimed that the construction of the fence is designed to take advantage of guidelines that allow fences of wire and sticks to delist a property owner’s border with the Lake.

«Originally the fence was a great act of laziness, but now it is more of a crime, since the National Waters Law specifies that there cannot be any type of fencing within the water, so this new fence in the water will help us to act,» asserted one of the members of the group.

Those interviewed added that the lake is not far from reaching the elevation indicated by the National Water Commission (CONAGUA), which is 97.8, and is currently at 95.1, that is, the property is well within the permitted limit.

This action on the part of the owners of the property angered Ajijitecos, both from the movement and outside of it. «They must think they need another fence, they sure like to spend money; besides, why are they doing it now that the lake level has risen. Why do they want almost a hectare of flooded land,» said another member of the group.

For the moment, the activists are preparing complaints so that the corresponding authorities take action on the delimitation of the land located within the federal zone.

🔴 || Anuncia Alejandro Aguirre que intervendrá en el tema de invasión de las zonas federales
Por Gilberto Padilla García
Cuando entre en funciones como presidente municipal de #Chapala, Alejandro de Jesús Aguirre Curiel dijo que intervendrá en el tema de las invasiones en zonas federales del Lago de Chapala, a fin de encontrar una solución a la problemática.
Al ser un asunto que preocupa a un grupo de habitantes de #Ajijic, quienes retiraron cercas y mallas de algunos terrenos federales, al poniente de dicha delegación, Aguirre Curiel dijo que no desconoce la problemática y por eso tomará cartas en el asunto.
“Yo, igual que ellos, estoy muy molesto por todo lo que está pasando en las zonas federales. Creo que debemos tomar acciones, pero dentro del marco legal, para que ellos también no puedan caer en una responsabilidad, en un problema legal”.
“Me queda claro que todos los gobiernos municipales no hacen nada por las zonas federales y es por eso la molestia, la desesperación de las personas, pero en el próximo gobierno vamos a tomar cartas, vamos a cuidar las zonas federales”.
En entrevista, Aguirre Curiel dijo que se retomaría la propuesta de firmar un convenio con la Comisión Nacional del Agua (CONAGUA) para que el municipio tenga la administración y custodia de las zonas federales, aunque también existe otra alternativa.
Esa alternativa tiene que ver con Puerto Vallarta, donde dicho municipio encontró un instrumento jurídico que le permitió tener el manejo de las zonas federales, incluso, realizar el cobro por el uso de las mismas, por lo que se busca replicarlo en Chapala.
“Estamos trabajando en eso, si lo logramos, eso sería un ingreso importante para el municipio, pero es un proyecto hasta ahorita”, aclaró el también regidor del PAN con licencia, sin ofrecer más detalles acerca de la propuesta.
La problemática de las zonas federales, en donde los concesionarios han construido de manera indebida en los terrenos del vaso lacustre, no es desconocida para Aguirre Curiel, quien gobernó Chapala por primera vez en el periodo 2001-2003.
A finales del 2003, el también empresario encabezó una campaña de retiro de postes, cercas y alambrados que habían sido alcanzados por el Lago de Chapala en su recuperación y que representaban un riesgo para las embarcaciones.
Esta campaña se realizó en coordinación con la Capitanía de Puerto y la CONAGUA, a quien le compete directamente la supervisión de las zonas federales concesionadas y el retiro de las construcciones que están fuera de la ley.
🔴 || Announces Alejandro Aguirre that he will intervene in the issue of invasion of federal areas
By Gilberto Padilla García
When he comes into office as the municipal president of #Chapala, Alejandro de Jesús Aguirre Curiel said he will intervene on the issue of invasions in federal areas of Lake Chapala, in order to find a solution to the problem.
Being a matter of concern to a group of inhabitants of #Ajijic, who removed fences and meshes from some federal grounds, to the speaker of that delegation, Aguirre Curiel said that he does not ignore the problem and therefore will take matters into account.
′′ I, like them, am very upset about everything going on in federal areas. I think we need to take actions, but within the legal framework, so that they too can not fall into responsibility, into a legal problem ".
′′ It's clear to me that all municipal governments do nothing for federal areas and that's why the annoyance, despair of people, but in the next government we're going to take care of federal areas ".
In interview, Aguirre Curiel said that the proposal to sign a convention with the National Water Commission (CONAGUA) would be resumed for the municipality to have administration and custody of federal areas, but there is also another alternative.
This alternative has to do with Puerto Vallarta, where the municipality found a legal instrument that allowed it to have the management of federal areas, even to make the charge for their use, so it is sought to replicate it in Chapala.
′′ We're working on that, if we succeeded, that would be an important income for the municipality, but it's a project so far ", clarified the licensed PAN's also Councillor, without more details about the proposal.
The troublesome of federal areas, where dealerships have unduly constructed on the grounds of the lacustre glass, is not unknown to Aguirre Curiel, who ruled Chapala for the first time in the period 2001-2003.
In late 2003, the entrepreneur also spearheaded a campaign to retire posts, fences and wire that had been hit by Lake Chapala in recovery and posed a risk to boats.
This campaign was conducted in coordination with Port Captaincy and CONAGUA, which is directly responsible for oversight of federal concession areas and the withdrawal of outlawed buildings.
