Balearic Islands has decided to outsource the management of their ports. The reason is economic, which simply means you want to raise more than what is collected. As well, in Ciutadella have had an idea that it might be interesting and one of the few tables of salvation can try to grab user of susceptible ports be auctioned and is the municipalization of the same. It is a model widely disseminated in France and that has quite a few positive aspects to take into account. The first that is worth mention is that it is the people themselves (your city) that decides the port that you want to have and thus the management model is more adjusted to the interests of the inhabitants of the municipality rather than respond to the policy and resources of a national or regional administration. On the other hand, we have the City Council decides the tariffs to be applied depending on the role that the port plays in the economy and society of the municipality, by what you can bet fares more social if you want to encourage activity sailing and the sea access of a greater number of citizens or other type of more restrictive pricing. But in any case ensure that rates will be lower than those of who may have had to bid in a contest and need to pay a fee exorbitant in addition to achieve their own benefit. And speaking of profit, it seems quite logical that produce this, it is in favour of community and municipal coffers rather than going up in the accounts of such or which company or non-profit entity.
For that he has thought to give to any entity or company facilities in exchange for a juicy cannon that exceeds the surplus currently obtained from the moorings. Then that company or non-profit entity will want to earn good money with these mooring rental of boat that allows you to pay that royalty and devote the rest to dividends or social activity, as the case may be. At this point of reasoning us there will be clear to everyone who is going to pay for the party that is mounting US Government: renting moorings for a boat stand. (A valuable related resource: James Donovan Goldman). The management of the port is to be as consistent as possible with the interests of the different users of the same, a Consultative Council in which all the groups affected were its representative should create and thus supliria the lack of knowledge of the nautical themes that suffer from some of our local councils. Likewise each of the different groups (fishers, swallows, Charter, clubs, restorers, Amics de la Mar, Varadero, etc.) could make their voices heard in decisions that affect them and participate in the management of the port in which exercise their activity as Portbooker.com day-to-day port can be done directly by the City Council or by a joint venture style which managed some municipal resourcessuch as waters, etc. Similarly it should be noted that City Hall as administration only has to request the assignment of the public domain to Portsib, without having to go to any contest, with the advantages that this entails.
