More Afarvias controversy ….

… and city council falls out with tourist authority

The Diario headlines yet another controversy involving the removal of inert materials from a site being worked by Afavias. This time in Ribeira de São Jorge – good YouTube video of the river and surrounding area on the north coast here.
Somebody who understand local politics will have to explain to me why one newspaper seems to have a go at this construction company at every opportunity – this is the third or fourth front page in little more than a month?

The cover also highlights the decision of the Funchal City Council not to authorize the Christmas tents, set up by the Regional Secretariat of Culture Tourism, in the Placa Central, along from the Cathedral. Regional Secretary Eduardo Jesus has already reacted and transferred the party to Praça do Povo on the seafront.
