Questions raised by Members. · Is the Association road cleaning cost duplicated in the Ayuntamiento's normal road cleaning mandate? · A point was made that the Ayuntamiento clean the streets so why was extra money paid to third parties to clean additional areas? It was explained that there are 2 “difficult area” to keep clean of weeds and rubbish as they build up rapidly – One in Calle Rosa and  the other in Avenida Bernia. Peter the gardener is paid a flat rate of 60 euros a year and he sprays these areas and keeps them free from weeds so they do not become a hazard for road users in the interim periods when the Ayuntamiento doesn’ft clear these places.                                                   Item 7) Questions and future issues. · · App for mobile phones not reasonably possible. · Mosquito problem discussion concluded no insecticide spraying as it also kills pollinating bees.
