The reason for this is simply down to the slowness of the bureaucracy As a TH we spent between 50 and 60,000 euros in urgent work following the flood of 28th September. The regional authorities opened the lines for T.H.s to make claims in October and we submitted ours. This was paid just over one week ago! Therefore even if they open the lines,for us to make the subsequent claims (which for us total a few million euros), next week it would take until October to be likely to receive the monies. Some of our works including the sewerage issue need to be done before summer so we are not going to get the money in time for that. I asked about whether we can push the Diputacion for the IBI bills but we cannot. I asked if we could push the authorities for this compensation money but was told we cannot. So some hard choices ahead.
As a result of that and the fact that we cannot get much doen now until after Easter I did not pursue any other issues.
I dis ask on behalf of one resident about the situation regarding the court case against the Sunlit houses and was told that the Contencioso Court in Almeria had ruled in favour of the TH but that subsequently the Junta had appealed it and we have heard no more yet. So still waiting.
I will get back to the other outstanding issues next week once eater is out of the way.
