The approaching storm surprised many families with children. In search of a shelter they went to the famous "Okrąglak", a pavilion that is also a café. Unfortunately, they were asked to leave him. According to Gazeta Wyborcza, the tenant of the building would say: "This is a cafe, not a hostel".
The historic building of "Okrąglak" is rented free of charge from the Fundacja im. Henry Jordan. It has been said for years that it is being neglected and falling into decay. Residents and municipal councilors have repeatedly called on the shortening of the 25-year rental period, which will not expire until 2020.
The café is open every day until sunset. As recent events have shown, it is also a place that is extremely unfriendly to residents in emergency situations. According to the council members, the last activities of the tenant of the facility have exposed children and adults to danger. At the same time, they were reminded of the shortening of the rental period of the facility.
The council members of the district Krowodrza, where the park is located, have long been talking about the poor technical condition of the building. The leaking roof, as well as the fact that this place is only open in summer, generates general astonishment and resistance.
In the letter from the councilors to the president of the city Jacek Majchrowski, the letter says "We demand that the residents of Krakow draw the consequences and resolve the lease with the agent as quickly as possible. We expect the city of Krakow to take the interests of the residents looks after and the decision will be taken in accordance with social expectations. "
Will the tenant bear the consequences of the incident that we will soon see. In the whole situation it is reassuring that no one has been disadvantaged.
