IF Inca wants to be commercially competitive and attractive to tourists, then it has first got to be spruced up, said Rafel Torres, the town's Mayor yesterday. We want a modern, new look for Inca, but above all a clean one, he said speaking at the presentation of several specialised street cleaning vehicles. We've made the financial investment in achieving this goal but if people living in Inca don't back it, then we won't succeed. The adoption of a clean-up policy is no chance strategy on the part of the Council. Recent surveys revealed that the dirty streets in Inca was the issue which most worried its citizens.
In fact the new cleaning operations had their trial run at the start of last month. The town council is to pay 900'000 euros a year to the Cespa company over a period of 10 years, especially in the commercial area and the historic centre of the city. Cleaning will take place six days a week whilst the suburbs of Inca will be serviced twice a week.
Residents will actually be able to monitor the quality of the cleaning service by accessing the council website. There details of when and how the streets have been cleaned and what waste paper bins and selective waste containers have been emptied on a daily basis.
