TEULADA will waive fees for restaurants, bars and cafes to put tables and chairs on public terraces in the municipality for a period of four months once approved at plenary session, town hall sources said. The move announced by Mayor Antoni Joan Bertomeu in response to the negative effects new smoking laws are having on takings of the local leisure and catering industry.
“This measure will help things a bit,”·he said. In Teulada and Moraira “the weather is normally good and owners can use their terraces to help takings during the winter months,” he added.
He also said the measure would allow bars and restaurants to employ more staff.
The mayor also announced plans to offer a discount for pensioners via a discount card that would give them a 50 per cent discount from courses and workshops.
Around 1,200 people currently have the ‘tarjeta ciudadana’ (citizens’ card).
The only condition to obtain the card is being registered at the town hall (empadronado).
