That was an encouraging reply, thank you very much. I thought I was alone with my concerns.
I can understand that Ayuntamientos are desperate for money, as so much seems to have been filtered.
They still have a lot of responsibilities to execute. One of our owners actually works for the Estepona council.
She says that their phone bills cannot be paid and staff have to use their own mobiles to conduct necessary business.
Also many street lights have been out for several months due to none payment of bills.
This is a very sad state of affairs and we have some sympathy with the honest ones that remain to conduct business as usual.
Nevertheless, we do feel that they should remain within the law and explain any increase transparently.
I received an e-mail from a friend on the CdS just last week and he believes that the increase in Basura charges has been declared illegal. Which authority declared it, I'm not sure and whether the council will respond and repay the overcharge is even more doubtful.
I just hope that there are enough owners who care to keep a careful eye on the situation and report their findings on this Forum.
Thanx again Johnny
