DURING a recent plenary meeting,
The controversial plan to introduce a €3 fee for parking near the beach has proved to be a positive measure, according to the town hall, which has brought in revenue which will contribute to the upkeep of the area, as well as keeping down crime and vandalism.
The Councillor for Taxes in the town hall, Felipe Cayuela, said this year no vehicles were broken into, whereas last year, there were 74 complaints for this reason.
The company chosen to run the parking service was Servisegur, which was paid €170 per day, €6,120 in total, for five people. The total takings for the town hall have been €31,905.
Cleaning costs have also been lower this year, and has been carried out by Civil Protection volunteers who have also attended eight emergencies on the beach.
