When former mayor Tomeu Cifre (Tots per Pollença), now in opposition at Pollensa town hall, was saying, a week before Christmas, that work on Puerto Pollensa's semi-pedestrianisation scheme had stopped, the town hall claimed no knowledge of a subcontractor not having been paid (as Cifre was suggesting) and attributed any slowing in the work to the festive season. The councillor for urban planning, also Tomeu Cifre (Junts Avançam), said that the town hall would be the first to press the company to get on with the work more quickly.

However, the town hall did deem it necessary to have a meeting with the main contractor a few days later and now it is admitting that there are issues with a lack of manpower - only three are currently working - as well as with the supply of concrete. The contractor, according to the town hall, will be increasing the number of workers on the project to fifteen (a figure which should be reached by next week, it is being suggested).

As to the subcontractor carrying out the breaking-up work, all the town hall is saying is that there has been a problem.
