It’s impressive you have collected that much already.  Maybe it’ll be one thing ex-pats did that Harry can’t bitch about.  Rolling Eyes

At this rate, we're going to have to slow CanuckBob down. I know! Let's start micro-managing and armchair quarterbacking! Very Happy

If anyone was on the fence before about whether or not to contribute, now is the time! Thanks CBob!

Maybe we should have several meetings and debate the various color options for the benches. Personally, I like pink. Very Happy

Exactly. Color is important. After all, these renovated benches aren't just going to be a place to plant our asses and enjoy the view. They are going to say something about who we are as a people. First, of course, we'll have to tackle getting that new Ajijic Tourism sign on the malecón repainted different colors. Only then can we properly address the issue of bench aesthetics.

I'm going to move that the bench reno project be tabled until Fiscal Year 2020.

Bottom Line: The project is still short of funds... If you use the Malecon maybe it would be in your interest to contribute...

You’re going to trust our fearless leader with all that money until 2020? I’ll volunteer to hold it.

Okay. No more derailig the thread (from me). I was just trying to have some fun via sarcasm. Very Happy

This is such a great project and well under way with demonstrated responsible leadership. It just needs more funding to push it to completion.

Contribute! Participate! Renovate!

Then we can all set our butts down on nice benches and enjoy the wonderful views. Thanks again to CanuckBob. Excellent!

Rumor has it that some drug cartel representatives will be visiting the non-donators to this project.
If true, a small price to pay for some peace of mind (and piece of body).
Just a "heads up". Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy
I'm thinking about doubling my contribution.

One suggestion...I used to paint over the graffiti on the wooden benches...and observed that when the boards extend a few inches past the metal bench frames, they tend to get pulled off or ripped off...sometimes for firewood when the beach campers show up, and also by the skate-boarders. Perhaps you can shorten the boards to be flush with the metal frame.

Just had a surprise: On page 15 of the current Guad. Reporter, we are informed that the work building the "bridge to Jesus" has resumed and will be finished this month. Too bad they're too broke to fund fixing the infrastructure, including our Ajijic Malecon project. Shocked

I had understood that the "bridge to Jesus" was privately funded by a wealthy benefactor and was not built with any municipal funds. Does the GDL Reporter say it is municipal funds?

Wish I had an online version to give a link to, but here's what it says under a picture of the project:  First, the headline says "JESUS BRIDGE BACK ON TRACK"

"The Chapala government has resumed work on the bridge linking the east leg of the Malecon to the Jesus Pescador Island monument." (Then, after a few sentences) "An elaborate plan to construct an adjacent walkway was initiated by the 2015-2018 administration. Progress on the project was curtailed due to budget cuts implemented by the state government that required design and funding delays.  The initial phase of work should be completed in time for December 31 festivities."

That's all that it says. Nowhere does it indicate private funding at any point.  I suspect that rumor was an excuse for spending public funds for a religious purpose. (I'm a serious cynic here)

Yeah could be. Looks like state funds though not municipal.
