"No som fems, som gats" returns to raise awareness about abandoned cats

The Consell de Formentera would like to raise local awareness about increasing numbers of abandoned cats on the island. In recent weeks, kitten litters as well as other, apparently domesticated adult cats have been found in rubbish containers and ditches. A municipal ordinance prohibits the abandonment of animals and creates fines of €30 to €15,000 for violators of the rule.

For more information, contact the Consell de Formentera veterinary service (tel. 971 32 10 87, ext. 3164 / veterinari@conselldeformentera.cat).

foto 2022v ple extra2In a one-off plenary assembly held today, GxF and PSOE cabinet members overcame the "no" votes of Sa Unió representatives in the opposition to obtain the maximum legal coverage to maintain beach services on Formentera. Councillors agreed to ask for reports from the technical services of the Formentera Office of Environment, Consell de Formentera legal services and Dr. Avel·lí Blasco Esteve, professor of administrative law at the University of the Balearic Islands (UIB).

"Formentera's beach services are crucial", said Antoni Tur, Councillor of Environment, "they help maintain the image that tourists have of the island and they keep beaches clean and safe, not to mention their social importance for islanders, so we are seeking the maximum legal coverage, and the highest level of security to provide guarantees to companies and people involved in this process and also to the administration".

Traffic reopened on Carretera des Ca Marí

foto 2022 ca mari obres AThe Consell de Formentera is pleased to report that today traffic has been reopened in both directions on the road to Es Ca Marí. In the last few days, resurfacing work has been carried out on the stretch of road affected by Red Eléctrica de España's installation of the third cable.

This summer, however, there will be a temporary drinking water pipe on the right side of the road towards Es Ca Marí. The exposed pipe will require the road be narrowed, and the change will be signposted and the speed limit reduced.

Work on the third cable has not been completed and will resume after the tourist season. The operations to connect Eivissa's Torrent substation with the Es Ca Marí substation on Formentera will include deployment of two 132 kilovolt (kV) links and will make it possible for Formentera to meet its electricity needs safely and stably, according to REE. The infrastructure project has a budget of €96 million.

Camí des Simonets

Further, in the days ahead the Consell de Formentera will review the state of Camí des Simonets and the other alternative routes used in recent months to access Es Ca Marí and will repair them.

Lastly, the Consell de Formentera wishes to apologise to the residents of the area for the inconvenience caused by this important work for our island.
