T he Es Cine cultural centre in Portol was chosen by the Left-wing Republican Party of Catalonia for yesterday's inauguration of their political presence in Marratxi.
T he Town Council in Inca is to put the job of managing and maintaining the municipal cemetery out to public tender. Newly in charge of the cemetery is Councillor Andreu Gili who said what we need is good management of the already-existing installations; we believe the best solution is for a private company to take responsibility, of course, always under the supervision of the local Council.
One of the effects of the recent opening of a private morgue in Inca has been that people have practically stopped using the municipal morgue altogether. There is a clear disadvantage, said Gili. The prices are the same but the private company works through an insurance company which offers all services. The company evidently offers the services of the private morgue before the one belonging to the municipality.
K Illegal tourist offer
H oteliers in Santa Ponsa are demanding that the regional government intensify their efforts to weed out individuals and organisations who are providing accommodation to tourists to the Islands on an illegal basis, i.e. undeclared and failing to conform to standards set by Balearic authorities.
Antoni Roses, spokesman for the hoteliers described the tourist season this year as not particularly good and it had come to the notice of the Hoteliers' Association that a high number of visitors were lodging at establishments which had not officially declared their business activity. Such under cover trade, claimed Roses is damaging that of hotels and pensions which comply with the law in terms of tax, safety and hygiene.
T he Town Council in Pollensa has this week taken on the services of an architect for the design and construction of a day centre for the elderly. It is to be situated on a plot of land adjacent to the Sant Domingo pensioners' residence at a cost of 21'000 euros.
