Eager to take your money, bless them, the ticket machines in two of Almuñécar’s underground car parks have been updated.
Since the two underground parking facilities were opened nine years ago on Velilla and San Cristóbal the ticket machines have been pretty choosey about how you pay; only accepting cash and notes as big as a 20-euro one.
The Town Hall (to whom these ill-fated installations unhappily belong) has decided to cast the grumbling machines out – they have since been seen drinking cheap wine and sleeping under bridges.
Councillor for Citizen Safety, Paco Robles, explained that the snazzy new ones accept larger notes and, credit cards. In fact, they are so modern, having cost 30,000 euros, that it is rumoured that they will polish your flip flops whilst you wait.
Lastly, the Councillor explained that although these parking facilities are choc-a-bloc during the incredibly shrinking high season, the rest of the year they are almost empty. Therefore, the Town Hall has offered a monthly parking fee of just 32 euros.
At such a price, the old ticket machines will be able to club together and rent a space to live!
