Default Bring your own chairs ????

Interesting bit in the Bulletin today saying that the annual contract for the Hamacas still hasn't been let this year !!!!!

Apparently the Co who provided the service last year lost so much money that they don't want to bid again .

They usually start May 1st , which is only the end of next week so looks like bring Your Own this year , guys !!!

Maybe if the council reduced the tax for the operating company they would do it. If not I assume they'll use Emser which is what certain parts of the council wanted.

Sholud answer most questions about the sun beds. From the DB

Tax relief for Pollensa beach managers
STAFF REPORTER
POLLENSA town council has been forced to lower the tax it would collect from beach management companies by 70'000 euros this year.
The move comes after the economic crisis has hit the local residents’ association which normally benefits from the hiring out of sunbeds and sunshades and has left them 170'000 euros in debt to the council from last year’s business.
The association has said that it will no longer go on providing the service because they are making no money from it and the law prevents them from trading in the coming summer season if they have still not paid their dues from the last.


OUT TO TENDER
Currently the beaches in the Port of Pollensa are without any one organisation taking responsibility for their upkeep.
As a result, the council is getting ready to put another beach management contract out to public tender. Tax and Environment Councillor, Juan Jose Mir, said this week that at its next plenary session to be held on 29th April, Pollensa town council will put forward the new conditions of contract but the opposition party has said that it should be a municipal company, as opposed to a private one, which carries out the daily beach cleaning and hiring out of facilities.

Can't remember how much they cost, but is not something around a tenner a day? (bed & umbrella). If you hired one every day that's quite a hole in your budget. The r/e doesn't help but perhaps if they dropped the price more people would use them, especially outwith high season. It WOULD be cheaper to buy one.
