<font class="content">Hi,
Is there anyone who lives in the Iznalloz area of Granada who knows where to pay the water bill. I received my first water bill, took it to the bank and was told I could'nt pay it there. I have some spanish but not enough to know what the girl was trying to tell me. Although I did grasp I had to pay it before 10 O'clock. The yearly rates bill has to be paid by 10'oclock also but I can do that in the bank. It is a village house and no-one seems to speak english in the village. We do not live there full time, yet. I would be very grateful if anyone has any idea. Thanks

<font class="content">In some villages you have to pay at the town hall. You could enquire there.</font>

<font class="content">Does the bill indicate who is the supplier, ie a water company or the town hall?

<font class="content">Hi Chris,
The bill says AYUNTAMIENTO DE IZNALLOZ inside top left and it opens out like the rates bill. Agua and Alcantrillad icon_confused.gif o periodo etc. I do not think it comes from a water company.What do you think. icon_confused.gif

<font class="content">Caroline,

I am 99% sure your water is provided by the town hall and not a water supply company. Go into the town hall (during the morning) and wave the bill at them and ask if you pay it there.

There are one or two web sites which provide free translations so worthwhile going with the prepared question in Spanish. I always start with "I speak very little Spanish"

Try: www.freetranslation.com

Good luck,

Chris</font>

<font class="content">Our water is definatly supplied by the water board in La Rabita, but we pay the bilss by standing order, certainly here it has nothing to do with the Ayuntamiento.

<font class="content">Yes, La Rabita/Albunol/Albondon is all supplied by a water company. However, the water supply in many villages is the responsibility of the town hall and they produce the bills and that is where they have to be paid.

In some areas, such as parts of Rambla Huerea, the water distribution is private and a co-operative collects the money.</font>

<font class="content">Hi again mOicc you are correct there is no standing order/direct debit facility available that I know of in my village of Iznalloz.

For electricity yes but as yet not for the water otherwise it would be quite straightforward. icon_smile.gif
