Tem­po­rary clo­sure for CMO cafe­te­ria

Costa Blanca News (South Edition) - - News - Djones@cb­news.es

By Dave Jones THE CAFE­TE­RIA in Tor­re­vieja’s mu­nic­i­pal leisure cen­tre (Cen­tro Mu­nic­i­pal de Ocio CMO) has been closed down un­til a new con­tract is signed to run the fa­cil­ity.

Coun­cil­lor for se­nior cit­i­zens Fabi­ana Ibarra said the con­tracts to run the bar and the ser­vices in other pen­sion­ers’ cen­tres in the mu­nic­i­pal­ity – have now been put out to ten­der.

She said that it was fore­seen that the CMO cafe­te­ria would only be closed for a short pe­riod of time while the ser­vice is ad­ju­di­cated for the build­ing which stands be­hind Car­refour and the Ha­baneras shop­ping cen­tre.

“The CMO is not be­ing closed down, just the cafe­te­ria,” she noted. “The build­ing will carry on work­ing as usual.”

Coun­cil of­fi­cers will carry out an in­ven­tory of the fa­cil­ity to see if any restora­tion work is needed while the cafe­te­ria is closed, she added.

Sra Ibarra noted that con­tracts for the CMO and the ser­vices in the other pen­sion­ers’ cen­tres were be­ing of­fered on an in­di­vid­ual ba­sis and did not have to be run col­lec­tively.

In this way they will avoid con­tract­ing the ser­vices out to one large com­pany.

“Each of the cen­tres will have a cafe­te­ria ser­vice which is more neigh­bourly,” she said.

“It is a good op­por­tu­nity for fam­i­lies who want to start a busi­ness.”
