The Calvia council and local cabbies have reached an initial agreement after a month of conflict. It has now been agreed that 26 new licences can be granted. The cabbies had wanted a maximum of 17 and the council 54. The agreement has to be ratified by the cabbies, according to deputy Mayor Antoni Garcia Moles, who said the situation would be revised in 2004. Cabbies will also have one day off for every ten worked in the summer, and 21 consecutive days in winter, plus four extra days. The council will pay half the cost of installing credit card readers. The deputy Mayor said that it was a good agreement, “especially for Calvia residents.”
