POLITICIANS have finally reached an agreement over the future of Malaga’s cleaning services.
The city’s Mayor, Francisco de la Torre, has announced the political hot potato will be resolved by privatising street cleaning while allowing waste collection services to remain publicly run.
De la Torre had faced criticism from his own party, the Partido Popular (PP), as well as from opposing Ciudadanos over his plans to bring cleaning company Limasa under municipal control. Fellow PP politicians had instead wanted the company to be privatised, leading to a mixed management model in place from April whereby the company had been 51 per cent privately owned.
Giving way to his own party, the mayor will now allow street cleaning to be put out to tender.
