Soldiers will have improved facilities in the city
By Antonio De Jesús Aguado
“I am a mayor who listens,” said Mauricio Trejo, as he laid the first stone for the army barracks renovation. The administration has committed funds to refurbish the facilities for soldiers who will be housed in San Miguel.
On November 27, 2012, 40 students from the Escuela Superior de Guerra (Mexican War College) visited the city and were welcomed by Trejo. In his speech he told them, “The work that you perform must be rewarded, and what we can do is offer you the most beautiful facilities in all of the states.” Although the current facilities are in good shape, Trejo said that they must be improved because soldiers are those who guarantee the security of Mexicans. Trejo made it clear that if in the future there are more soldiers in the city, that does not mean there is insecurity. It is just a preventive measure, and the idea of having a bigger detachment was to have help in cases of emergency.
One month later, with General Alejandro Saavedra, Trejo inaugurated the construction of the new facilities for the Mexican army in San Miguel, which will include communal rooms, two offices for generals and one other office. The new building will also include a kitchen, dining room, warehouse and parking lot. The construction will be finished in three months and will generate employment for inhabitants of the nearby area. The investment is 1,300,000 pesos.
