Golden Geese

MIJAS council has decided to implement a 1999 law that all electric and telephone wires must be placed underground.  The electric cables belong to Endesa, and the telephone wires belong to Telefonica.  These private companies should be responsible for the cost of this work.  Why are the residents of the urbanisations being penalised again?  Residents pay to maintain the roads and they pay for lighting the streets on their urbanisation.  They pay the same IBI and rubbish fees as residents in the towns and villages but receive no services in return. They pay for gardeners to keep the urbanisations neat and tidy while in towns and villages this is carried out by employees of the council.

Are the residents on urbanisations the geese that lay the golden eggs?
