THE good news for Javea residents is that town hall administrative services have now been centralised in newly refurbished offices above the Portal del Clot car park (number 2 Avenida Amanecer) in the old town.
No more wandering around the maze of ancient side streets in the old town, looking for isolated offices with unintelligible signage hidden in dark doorways after walking miles over cobbled streets from a distant parking facility
This new spacious, highly accessible and airy environment will be a much more comfortable place for both public and staff alike, according to Councillor for Citizen Participation Cesc Camprubi.
It features seven multi-purpose service desks all capable of dealing with most administrative questions with the exception of specialist tax matters which will remain based at he Economic Office, 5 Calle Mayor.
Please see list below for range of services that will be available on weekdays from 9am to 2pm.
For non Spanish speaking residents, the new foreign desk will also be part of this central info centre, with Representative Elizabeth Collins available to help with language problems as well as offer advice on a variety of local subjects.
As part of this new council shake-up, town hall staff within the Public Works Department, will now share the Technical Office with the Planning Department, newly located in carrer d’Avall number 39. Councillor Cesc Camprubi added that work is also being carried out to develop an online e-administration, which he hopes will be up and running in six months. In line with this, the Finance Department also expect to be able to start accepting payment of rates with a POS terminal, which will avoid unnecessary trips between the municipal offices and banks.
