The Gelats Valls ice cream shack
« on: June 22, 2015, 11:35:12 AM »
Hopefully all will be clear soon.....Gelats Valls have been announcing new premises on Facebook but I haven't been able to see where it is.  Just found a photo which seems to suggest it will be re-located to a 'proper' shop along the front near to the Marina Brasserie.
There has been talk that Cafe 1919 wanted them to relocate presumably so that they can have more tables and chairs in front of the cafe.

Can anyone in the port confirm this?

Hi Mary
The ice cream shack is being relocated to new premises next to Don Corleone. Peering in yesterday it does look very smart indeed and I would imagine it will be open in the next couple of days.

Think there will be a lot of people who are going to miss the wooden shack though  :'(

Hey thanks for that!

Glad it is not moving too far away - and agree with you that the informality of the shack was part of the attraction.

The ice creams are still delicious though!!  :P

Good to see that the Ice cream shack has remained where it is (in front of Grand Cafe 1919) .....and although it is closed, the new Gelateria Valls cafe claims that it is remaining open all winter.  :P

More trouble is looming for the ice cream shack that Helados Valls operates.

Here is the latest offering from the Ultima Hora newspaper.

Quote
El alcalde de Pollença, Miquel Àngel March, firmó el viernes la orden de desalojo del quiosco que regenta Gelats Valls en el Moll. Se prevé que la noche de este jueves se de cuenta al pleno del decreto de Alcaldía que se ha demorado casi seis meses desde el inicio del expediente el pasado mes de abril.

Cabe recordar que el juzgado de instrucción de Inca ha admitido a trámite una querella interpuesta a finales de julio por presunta prevaricación contra el alcalde, Miquel Àngel March y el exalcalde Bartomeu Cifre Ochogavía, en relación a estos hechos. Considera que existen sospechas suficientes de que puede haber habido un trato de favor hacia la empresa que viene explotando el quiosco desde finales de los años sesenta y que a día de hoy carece de título habilitante.

El equipo de gobierno municipal (Junts-UMP) sigue sin convocar el concurso público para explotar el quiosco de helados en libre concurrencia, convocatoria de concurso que se demora desde enero de 2016. El alcalde había justificado hasta ahora la demora en la convocatoria en el hecho de que quería acompasar el desalojo con el concurso público.

Quote
The Mayor of Pollença, Miquel Àngel March, signed Friday the eviction order of kiosk runs Gelats Valls in the port.  Expected that this Thursday night will account to the plenary of the Decree of Mayor's Office that had been delayed almost six months since the start of the record last April.

It is worthwhile  remembering that the magistrate's Court of Inca has admitted to process a complaint filed at the end of July for alleged prevarication against the Mayor, Miquel Àngel March and the former Mayor Bartomeu Cifre Ochogavía, in relation to these facts.  It is considered that sufficient suspicion that there may have been a preferential treatment to the company operating the kiosk since the end of the 1960s, which today has no enabling title there.    The municipal government (Junts-UMP) team continues without convening the tender to operate ice cream kiosk in free competition, call for competition that is delayed from January 2016.  The mayor had justified the delay in the announcement in the fact that he wanted to match the eviction with the tender so far.
