Palma.—In order to get the project under way, the Local Police have begun to compile various reports which will ultimately be handled by the Council's Public Works department.

Even so, the Council has already seen fit to take action in one of the properties located in Calle Rosari in Sa Pobla which is in a particularly poor state of repair.

The doors and windows of the building have been sealed off because the owner has not responded to requests from the Council to make all necessary repairs to ensure the property doesn't provide a danger to the public. The cost of any work undertaken by the Council to secure the building will be charged to the proprietor, said local Partido Popular Mayor Biel Serra yesterday.

Serra confirmed that there were four other property owners to whom the Council had written in Sa Pobla, asking them to “put their house in order.” If the proprietors don't respond, said Serra, then the Council is within its rights to seal off the doors and windows as has already been done with the property in Calle Rosari.

He said that the campaign to root out derelict or abandoned property in the built-up area of Sa Pobla is going to gather strength and that Local Police are going to be very thorough in earmarking buildings considered to be a threat to public safety.
