Panama City Mayor Bosco Vallarino Asks For $2.5 Million To Enforce "Carrot Law"

Nightlife, Bars, and PartyingThe Mayor of Panama, Ricardo "Bosco" Vallarino asked the Central Government for a grant of $2.5 million dollars which he says he needs in order to enforce the two "carrot law" decrees that regulate the sale and consumption of alcoholic beverages, setting ceilings on bar hours, discos, bars and others. The mayor's request was given upon his departure from the normal session of the City Council meeting on Tuesday November 22, when asked by reporters about the resources needed to enforce the new standard. "The child's father must pay child support" was the phrase Vallarino said to reporters in response to the question presented by the journalists who waited for his departure from the weekly meeting. Vallarino explained that in the coming hours he will send a letter to the president, Ricardo Martinelli, to request the money to subsidize it (the enforcement of he new law), so he can recruit the hundreds of additional municipal police officers and officials of the "Justice of the Peace" who now have to operate at night. The mayor said the money will be invested not only in the recruitment of human resources, but also to purchase new patrol cars, uniforms, tools, gasoline and everything needed to execute the decrees.

Editor's Comment: Cool. "Unfunded mandates" in Panama. Does anyone think the central government will be giving Mayor Vallarino the money? No. They will enforce this law themselves using National Police officers, and then accuse him of not doing his job. Politics. It's all politics.
