Government / Politics
Spanish term or phrase: TTEL
This is from a local government document signed by:

"EL TTEL--Alcalde de Urbanism"

I've found a few references for this, but nothing that gives me a clue as to what it might mean.

Thanks in advance!

Notes to answerer
Asker: Thanks, Taña, you're instincts were good. I was able to verify this by googling "teniente de alcalde" and the name of the official who signed the document, which turned up references to him as the deputy mayor of the town. There are also a significant number of TTEL (and "deputy" mayor seems to fit the contexts in many of them) as well as "teniente del alcalde" hits on Google so, for whatever reason, TTEL does seem to be at least a not-uncommon abbreviation. Thanks for your patient research, it's really helped!

Asker: Taña, I have to wait for more time to pass before I can choose your answer.
