The Ciudadanos spokeswoman of the municipal group, Pilar Gómez, has requested that the City Council install public toilets in the main areas of the city. The councillor said that the people who live in the city, mainly elderly and retired, are in need of such facilities which are currently badly lacking.
“Anyone who needs to use a toilet must currently resort to visiting one of the cafés, bars or restaurants that line the sea front,” she said. “with the toilets that are currently in situ only open during the summer season.”
The absence of public toilets was one of the most repeated criticisms of both Los Verdes and the PSOE when they were opposition, and whilst in power even the PP promised to establish public toilets around the town, but they failed to carry it out.
At the beginning of this term of office, Mayor Jose Manuel Dolón (Los Verdes) also said that he would introduce the service, which he has not yet done.
