September water bill is more than 10 time the usual amount. $4000 pesos instead
of about $350.It has been argued at the water department, so far to no avail.
I've heard there are others with similar issues. How many of us are there? It
might be interesting to make connection for lobbying purposes. Thanks - Janel
I would like
to add to your comments about the new Telmex billing system. To call long
distance from the US (or other foreign country) to a Mexico cell phone you now
need to dial 011+52 (country code)+ 1+area code+number. For example my number
would be 011521612145-0050. If you are calling from the states to a Mexico
land line, the "1" between the "52" country code and the area code is omitted.
You would dial 01152612145-0050. Of course this is a big problem since people
may not know whether your phone is a cell phone or land line.
should also know that this new system is called "El que llama, paga" Which
translates, "He who calls, pays". With the old system both the person
placing the call and the cell phone owner receiving the call, were being billed
for the cell phone costs. Now only the person placing the call is billed,
so you will notice on your next bill that your calls to cell phones are
more expensive. Hope this is helpful. -
Re: septic tanks. To get a testy septic tank
pumped you have to deal with the water dept. and that can be no fun, not to
mention pricey, and may not even be necessary. But it would great to find out
who the best septic guy is around here for consults. -
Bomberos Gear Anyone who has contact
with the Bomberos? Doug and Lisa here, with some great news. Friends who
live on Lummi Island up in the San Juan Islands have made an offer to bring down
some used firefighting gear, the 'turnout' coats and pants from their Dept. Need
to know how many sets are needed, and general sizes. There are twenty sets
available, and the extras might go to another town.
They will be down in
January...Let us know. We are in San Diego and will be back down the 1st of Dec.
