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.
