In a previous blog entry I wrote about a scheduled referendum in San Nicolas (suburb of Monterrey, Mexico) over whether or not to install a fence on the border with neighboring suburb Guadalupe (see map here ).

Well, they held the referendum on the 24th, and 70% of those who came to the polls voted in favor of the fence.
A Feb. 27th article reported that on Feb. 26th, San Nicolas mayor Zeferino �Chefo� Salgado, who promoted the fence proposal, said he wouldn’t discuss the topic anymore, until after meeting with the mayor of Guadalupe, who wasn't pleased with the referendum.

Meanwhile, in San Nicolas, there are already two colonias (neighborhoods) in San Nicolas that have fencing around them.

Sometimes, a fence is just what's needed.
