    I really think that the IBI tax here in Spain (similar to the council tax) should be higher so councils could give better services to the community and then not depending in oversupply of properties to get cash.

    What is your opinion about this?

    The extra tax collected by the Council will be used for the drinks and Jamon Serrano for the staff and their enchufes at the Casita de Ayutemento at the annual

    In fact my council (Lorca, Murcia) has a calculated debt of about 80 million euro. Spent in things like meats for 400 people in electoral acts velied in cultural acts.

    Peterpara: Its boils down to accountability & taking responsibility. No body at any level does this in Spain & it is detrimental to Spain & its people.

    €80 million debt cannot happen overnight !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
