The Town Hall has published a bylaw in the Provincial Gazette (BOP), which will regulate prices in the Velilla and San Cristóbal underground car parks.
Councillor for Citizen Safety, Francisco Robles, explained that their intention was to regulate points that were not covered before, as well as promote the use of these publicly owned, subterranean, parking installations during the off season.
He also said that the new prices would more accurately reflect the true running costs of these two car parks.
“To compensate for the low demand between the 1st of September and the 30th of June, the cost of monthly parking passes will be made cheaper. The cost per month during those ten months will be 29.36 euros plus IVA; in other words 35,53 euros,” explained Sr. Robles.
He also attempted to explain the controversial problem generated by summer season tickets: the demand is high, the available spaces are few and many people attempting to purchase one get left out, leaving them with the impression that the system is ‘rigged.’
To fix this problem, you can now apply from the 1st of January for a summer, season ticket, which will be a transparent system duly registered, said the councillor.
Another novelty is that you will not have to provide ID and other documents, as owing to an agreement between the Town Hall and other administrations, Almuñécar will have access to this information from other databases.
Editorial comment: At last, the ordeal of providing, time and time again, copies of documents that already exist within the bureaucratic databases might actually be coming to an end!
