FROM TODAY I WILL BE DOING A SINGLE CORONAVIRUS STORY A DAY. WITH INFORMATION ADDED TO IT WHEN I GET IT. THAT WAY I WILL NOT EXCEED THE POSTING LIMITED ON THE FREE SOFTWARE I USE TO POST STUFF TO THE ALMERIMAR TODAY FACEBOOK PAGE.
PLUS I HAVE CREATED A SEPARATE MENU FOR THE STORIES. SO PEOPLE CAN GET TO THEM EASILY.
Local Car Tax
I understand that fewer people will be in Almerimar in the coming weeks and months. So they may not be here to receive their annual bill for local car tax and pay it.
I have just been told the following information on this subject:
"The car tax hasn't gone up since last year. So anyone that hasn't got this year's receipt because they are not here can pay the same amount as last year. The account details are listed on the receipt from last year."
I am getting conflicting information about how far from your home you can walk your dog. I have asked if there is some clear official information about this. As a couple of people have given me different stories on this issue.
My understanding is that you can only take your dog out to "do it's business". Not take it for a general walk. The suggestion I have been given is that people should use their common sense in this matter.
Also, only one person can accompany the dog.
Plus, please note that you are supposed to sanitise the paws (pads) of the dogs after it has been out.
