Taking into account the influx of people and many vacationers who seek this space to go for a swim, especially in the summer months, the mayor, Ricardo Nascimento, today decreed the total ban on this space: circulation, permanence of people or use for any purpose or activity, including access, crossing or movement on foot.
In view of this situation, the Municipality will also proceed to cut the existing public electricity at the site, as of the 6th of June.
The municipality again asks for everyone’s understanding and full compliance with the rules established with a view to people’s safety.
