poliesportiu4Councillor of sports Jordi Vidal, speaking on behalf of the Formentera Council (CiF), has announced that the Antoni Blanc sports centre will be closed over the Christmas holiday. The centre will remain closed from 23 December through 6 January 2016. Staff will reopen the centre on the 7th, although regular activity will not resume until 11 January 2016.

Formentera to hand financial data over to regional auditors

Signatura conveni Sindicatura ComptesThe Formentera Council (CiF) will facilitate access to its economic, fiscal and accounting data for the regional court of auditors (Sindicatura de Comptes). CiF president Jaume Ferrer and the court’s chief receiver, Joan Rosselló, signed an agreement today that will allow the Council to hand over its financial information to the Sindicatura, which has auditing authority. Ferrer indicated today’s move means Formentera will uphold a commitment ratified on 13 June 2015 in a plenary session of the Council.

The court of auditors will have access to the Council’s accounting system and be allowed to review all accounts closed, including activity by third-party businesses that is included in the CiF’s general budget. Furthermore, in order to assure an exhaustive audit, the Council is committing to «full cooperation with the auditors». The partnership was signed between the two groups today at noon in the head office of the Sindicatura de Comptes, in Mallorca, and will remain in effect indefinitely.

renovablesA documentary called Ibiza y Formentera 100% renovables (or, rendered in English, “Eivissa and Formentera, 100% renewable”) will be screened at the local cinema on Tuesday December 15 at 8.00pm. Environment secretary Daisee Aguilera thanked Miguel Ángel Villagrasa, Ulises Petinto and Fani Alonso, who are not only the founders of the nonprofit Camarógrafos por el cambio (“Photographers for change”—TN), but also the film's creators, for bringing it to the island.

The Formentera Council is contributing €800 to a production whose creators want audiences to ask the following question: “Is it possible to make Eivissa and Formentera 100% renewable?” After the screening participants of a roundtable discussion— including CiF environment secretary Daisee Aguilera, Fons de Preservació d'Eivissa's Sandra Benbeniste, Amics de la Terra's Jordi Salewski and members of the audience—will attempt an answer.
