The PP forces the commitment of the plenary session to modify the municipal ordinance
Alcúdia City Council will review the ordinance that regulates the opening hours of bars, restaurants and gambling venues to study the feasibility of expanding its night service without implying harm to its neighbors. A dozen representatives of the sector manifested this Thursday in the plenary session of the City Council that was debating a motion of the PP to modify the schedules included in the current ordinance. He wants to help the economic recovery of businesses now that the season is starting.
The proposal of the 'popular' happens because the bars, cafes, cafeterias and restaurants can open from 7 a.m. to 2:30 a.m. from Monday to Thursday and on Sundays and from 7 a.m. to 4 a.m. on Fridays, Saturdays and the eve of holidays. Bars at night (with music) from 10 a.m. to 2:30 a.m. from Monday to Thursday and on Sunday (from November to April) and from 10 a.m. to 4 a.m. Friday, Saturday and the eve of holidays (from May to October). The arcades could open from 9am to 4pm and the gyms from 6am to 11pm from November to April and from 6am to 1am from May to October.
The PP obtained the commitment of all the municipal groups with the exception of Vox (PSOE, PI, Més, UxA, Cs and Podem) to study the feasibility of the proposed time change within a maximum period of one and a half months. The protesters demanded speed from the mayor Bàrbara Rebassa (PSOE) and reminded her that "four months ago we demonstrated, she told us she would call us and she has not done so." They denounced the "loss of employment" that has caused the time cut introduced by the current regulations. "There are six families unemployed and another six with salary reduction," they indicated.
