After the failure to get pet owners to prevent their dogs fouling the pavements, or at least cleaning up after them, EMAYA is now turning its attention to the dogs themselves. And to do so, it will set up a training school at Son Reus, where the dogs will be taught not to foul the pavements and not to attack people. This school will be free but an opening date has not been given. It is all part of a new scheme to make Palma a cleaner city and it is based not on fines but on civic-mindedness. Maria Crespo, the deputy mayor who is also head of EMAYA, and Francisco Montalvà, the company's new director of the environment, explained details of the project yesterday. Crespo started out by saying “the Palma city council wants to guarantee the quality of life and EMAYA dedicates all its efforts towards this,” adding that “however much dedication we give, we need the help of the man in the street.” At present, Emaya spends 1'500 million pesetas a year on keeping the streets clean. Crespo said that all residents and organisations should be committed to observing municipal bylaws and making sure others keep them
