The Calvia town council has published a municipal edict for the summer, listing the measures taken to guarantee quality of life for visitors and residents during the season. According to deputy Mayor Manel Suárez, who is responsible for security, one of the chief purposes of the edict is to prevent noise pollution, either from bars or similar or building sites. Road safety has also been taken into consideration, he said, with special vigilance for road works in the municipality. Parking will be regulated through the ORA (restricted parking) system which has been introduced recently in coastal areas. Other objectives include preventing street vendors, keeping dogs off the beach and establishing a protocol for keeping a check on dangerous breeds of dog. Suárez also announced the services which will be provided this summer by the Local Police, Civil Defence and Calvia 2000. He explained that the new structure of the Local Police, introduced on April 1, divides the municipality into six areas and will bring the police into closer contact with the public. The night patrols will be increased in areas such as Punta Ballena in Magalluf and the Plaza in Santa Ponsa. Safety at the beaches will be improved with 28 life guards and 19 watch towers. The council has also launched water saving and fire prevention campaigns. The presentation of the edict was attended by the Mayor of Calvia Margarita Nájera and the director general of the interior, Antoni Torres. The municipality of Calvia includes the popular resorts of Palmanova, Magalluf, Illetes, Peguera, Camp de Mar and Santa Ponsa.
