The Almuñécar Plenary Meeting of the Town Council on the 30th of last month rejected the call to forbid the sale of fruit and vegetables on the market stalls.
The Almuñécar police moved in during the Friday Market this week to confiscate a dozen pieces of illegal ivory. The stall owner could not demonstrate that he had obtained them legally.
For the second year running, Almuñécar will be hosting the Concurso Nacional Canino and the Exposición Nacional Canina.
The chief opposition party in Almuñécar has denounced that the trees on the Friday-market square are being drastically cut back/pruned in Spring.
There is a time to prune and a time when not to, and the basic guideline is do it whilst the plant is seasonally dormant. Hence the latest political squabble in Almuñécar.
Local businesses had been pressing the Policía Local and the Guardia Civil to do something about the amount of pirated goods (forgeries) at the Friday market.
