It’s idea is to have all customers on the same basic water rate. Currently, depending on which town you live in, your standing cost for a water meter can vary immensely.
Depending on where you live, the increase could be 300%.
The proposal is being sent out to all townhalls who are covered by the taxpayer owned water firm for discussion and voting.
Galasa is run by a board of directors appointed by the ruling politicians every four years. It has run up a staggering debt, which could be as much as €30 million euros, and continues to fail to provide either drinkable water, or proper sewage works, to much of the Levante. The price increase would go, not towards actually providing a service fit for a modern Western democracy, but to attempt to service the debt.
It is, in fact, a corrupt joke of a company that sucks at the taxpayers teat, and if an independent audit is ever carried out of the company’s finances, I suspect a lot of people would be looking at jail.
