A total of 70,000 euros is being spent on overhauling Jete’s sewage system, both in the Plaza del Ayuntamiento and under the main-road.
Quite a few regional bigwigs got together for the inauguration of a pumping station in the Rambla de Mólvizar.
Following a request from Andrew Eastwood on our facebook page concerning the Jete eviction, here are some clarifying details.
Around 500 people gathered in Jete yesterday to try to prevent the eviction of six families, but to no avail. When you take into account the entire population of the village doesn’t reach, 800, that’s quite a turn out.
Granada suffered its largest mountain fire of the year, just two days before the year ended.

What is being proposed is an 800m-long tunnel to link the reservoir to the Río Verde valley at the 400m-height level, using 8-km of pipe and costing 8,000,000 euros.
“The electricity consumption saving achieved – more than 2,000,000 euros per annum – would help Río Verde tropical fruit farming to survive,” pointed out a spokesman of the CGRBG.
The mystery of the poisoned dogs grips the upper part of the Río Verde; namely, Jete and Otívar! By the end of November past, over 20 pets had met their untimely end, thanks to poisoned bait. And we’re not talking about poison being put down in the plantations, but even within the streets of the…
