Enough is enough. Pollensa Council  yesterday slammed the Balearic Government for its  lack of interest and sensibility with the state of the Gola Canal, and has decided to take matters into its own hands.

Palma.—The canal drainage system needs urgent work, with the situation being described by experts as “alarming”.  
The council has repeatedly asked the authorities to do something about it but so far they have had no luck.
With temperatures rising and the water evaporating quickly the amount of rubbish and dirt in the canal has reached “unacceptable levels” posing a health and safety hazard to the locals.
Bartomeu Cifre, Mayor of Pollensa, yesterday slammed the government’s Environmental department for its lack of action and promised the council will now “take control of the situation”.
After speaking with the Coastal Protection Ministry (Costas), Cifre received permission to act on Costa’s part of the canal and assured the council will use that permission to solve  the problem even without the government’s approval.
