They have also enabled a hotline and an email address to answer any doubts related to payments during the nationwide lockdown.

“We perfectly understand the exceptional situation that we are all experiencing and the possible doubts that could arise,” he assured Velez-Malaga residents.
“Within reason we will adapt to all circumstances, so that no resident is affected by payment deadlines.”
