ALL Redovan councillors voted in favour of suspending the municipal terrace tax for bars, restaurants throughout 2022.

This will be the third consecutive year that the town has waived this tax, Finance councillor Jose Najar pointed out after the last plenary council meeting.

“We want to support the hospitality sector, which has been one of the most-affected by the pandemic,” he said.

“There is no longer as much economic aid available as there was in previous years,  prompting  us to continue suspending the terrace tax.”

This would go some way towards helping local restaurants, bars and cafes stay open, the councillor said, and at the same time boost the local economy.

At the same council meeting, councillors also agreed to change of name of Calle Jose Maria Peman, owing to the late author and essayist’s links to the Franco era.

The street will now be called Calle Adolfo Suarez, the first democratically-elected president of the Transition period.
