Pharmacies, cybercafes, libraries.
In an attempt to continue bringing needed services closer to
communities in Manati and adjacent towns, Manati Mayor Juan
"Aubin" Cruz plans to invest more than US$5 million in the
next few years to open some four pharmacies, five cybercafes, and up to
seven community libraries with Internet stations, reports Caribbean
Business (Nov. 23, 2005). Already, Manati has its own municipality-run
Internet provider service, Atenas Internet, which made its debut about a
decade ago and today has more than 3,000 clients.
