TURRE held a record-breaking plenary meeting which lasted six hours. During this time, the Izquierda Unida councillor remained standing to protest against the dangerous situation in the local Avenida Almeria, which despite a project being approved by the local council, has still seen no work carried out to improve it.
A motion was approved to study and resolve the situation of residents who had not been asked to pay property taxes for 15 years.
This affects many British residents, and will bring some €150,000 more to the municipal coffers.
Another was approved to solve the problem of residents in La Loma de la Venena, also mainly foreign residents, who have had no proper addresses but will now receive plaques with street names and numbers which will be recorded by the Department for Statistics.
Residents in the Cortijo Grande area will also receive protection regarding the problem between the promoter and Endesa, which means their water and electricity supplies are faulty.
