Water solutions

THE Binissalem town council have sent a letter to the Balearic Sewerage Institute (Ibasan), which is a branch of the Ministry for the Environment, asking them to come up with some urgent solutions for the current sewage problems. This letter has been sent as some the sewage lakes in the areas are currently being contaminated. The town council wants this situation to be improved immediately. They also want an emergency sewage lake to be set-up, where the uncontrolled water bypass will be closed so that residual water can arrive at the emergency lake. Once these urgent remedies are taken, the town council will then ask for a study to be carried out on extending the current sewage plant, as well as a meeting with the Head of Water Resources.

Consumer rights

T HE Minister for Health and Consumer Affairs, Aina Castillo, and the Mayor of Ses Salines, Sebastiá Vidal, yesterday signed an agreement to start up the “Consumer rights for you” programme. This is the second such agreement on the island, with the Llubi town council first setting the wheels in motion when it agreed to carry these functions out last week. Indeed, the aim of the Government is to extend this programme all over the island. For this case, both administrations will work together to improve the flexibilty and efficiency of the services that consumers use currently at the General Department for Consumer Affairs in Palma. With this aim in mind the council will receive and send on any consumer complaints and suggestions, with these being passed on to the Palma department. This will make it easier for residents as it will only mean a trip to their local town hall. A further aim of this programme is to give residents more consumer information through meetings and conferences which will be organised be both parties.
