THE SAGA of Ori­huela Costa’s beach bar ser­vice is close to an end, ac­cord­ing to coun­cil­lor for beaches Luisa Boné.

Sra Boné re­vealed yesterday (Thurs­day) that the bars and beach ser­vices such as um­brel­las and sunbeds – are planned to be up and run­ning be­fore the end of July.

Ac­cord­ing to the coun­cil­lor, the court for con­tract ap­peals, has this week re­jected all ap­peals against the pro­ce­dure and coun­cil of­fi­cers are ex­pected to dis­cuss the fi­nan­cial of­fers of the six bid­ders and an­nounce the win­ning com­pany next week.

“The con­tract pro­ce­dure has been proved to be fully le­gal and we can now go-ahead with the fi­nal stage and con­tract out the ser­vice,” she said.

The win­ning com­pany is to be al­lowed to use the ex­ist­ing fa­cil­i­ties, which are now owned by the coun­cil.

The beach bars have been closed since April, when the com­pany run­ning them, Chirin­gui­tos del Sol, warned the coun­cil that their con­tract had ex­pired in Novem­ber 2017.

That con­tract is be­ing in­ves­ti­gated by the courts due to al­leged ir­reg­u­lar­i­ties and the coun­cil de­cided not to re­new it and or­dered the com­pany to close down the bars.

The new ten­der was launched in May and the ser­vice was sup­posed to be up and run­ning by the end of June, but the pro­ce­dure was halted by ap­peals made to the courts.
