HOUSEHOLDS in Nerja are outraged at the prospect of a three euro per month rubbish tax.
Set to be charged from 2013, the fee is being introduced by the cash-strapped PP town hall – whose debt reached 4.8 million euros in 2011.
It is hoped the new tax will generate 540,000 euros annually.
Finance councillor Antonio Villaclaras said he had ‘no choice’, reasoning that the tax was substantially lower than what other town halls in the Axarquia charge.
Opposition parties have criticised the move, saying Mayor Jose Albert Armijo has broken his election promises.
They say that he undertook to freeze taxes and rates.
