“There is still plenty of work to be done,” the Mayor of Palma, Joan Fageda, said yesterday as he “reflected” on his and the Partido Popular's ten years of leading the city council. Fageda said that the “model for Palma” which the council introduced in 1991 is “still in force” but added that ten years down the road “is as good a time as any to take stock of the work that has been done and reflect on the past decade of Palma.” Fageda admitted “there will always be problems in any city, such as dense traffic and slow administration,” but he said that when he and the PP took over the reins of the city council “there was a general economic crisis which made it impossible for all our plans to crystalise.” However, Fageda, who last year was faced with criticism for running a dirty city, yesterday highlighted the investments which have been made and the ground covered with regards to the water supply, social services, culture, sports, urban development, the environment, transport, traffic, public safety and security. In particular Fageda singled out the “emergency and costly steps the city council took to ensure that the city's water supply was of a high quality fit for human consumption.”
