Palma.—The Partido Popular Mayor of Inca, Rafel Torres said yesterday that his team were studying the possibility of putting a bid out to public tender for the management of the events prior to the Dijous Bo festival in November. “The current economic situation forces us to optimise resources without cutting out any already-existing services,” said Torres.

The Mayor pointed out that although the winning bidder will have organisational costs to bear, the company will also be able to walk off with profits, whilst if the town council carries out the work, there will only be costs to the public. Stall holders and exhibitors at the three pre-Dijous fairs will be decided by public bid but the town council is going to reserve some space in the exhibition ground for local arts and crafts businesses.

Torres said that even though the management of the three fairs will be in private hands, the themes and programme of events will remain true to the spirit of previous years - one dedicated to flowers and plants, another to classic cars and the third devoted to an historic farmers' fair with folk costumes and traditional arts and crafts.
