Quotes

"This person, incognito, will watch the streets and public spaces in which most dog dirt has to be cleaned up" an official announcement said
The "canine detective" campaign is not about padding city coffers by levying fines on residents, said councillor Antonia García. "What we want to do is dissuade people, so that dog owners who don't clean up after their pets out of laziness, or disgust or because they simply don't want to, start to think they are always being watched by someone."
"A free and opened access to Internet in strategic areas of our city is one of the latest initiatives we have implemented to turn Meco into a modern and attractive town for the locals. A city to be more and more proud of." (xxxxxx provisional statements of Pedro Luis Sanz Carlavilla, Mayor of Meco)
AIMPLAS, located in Valencia, is a non-profit research association that acts as a "technological partner with companies in all sectors related to plastics, customizing integral and personalized solutions through the coordination of projects and technological services."
