  1. electric bill without solar 2000+ with solar 60
  2. Have you called CFE. Dont assume that they will automatically come.
  3. When looking for our 5th standard in 47 years of marriage, I contacted every poodle rescue I could find. They didn't want anything to do with people living in mexico. I guess they were afraid we'd eat the dogs. One even took me for a $50 registration fee and then refused to respond to my emails. They all want to be able to do onsite visits. The registration questionnaires are ridiculous.
  4. Al Berca people have a right to choose what dog and breed they want!. I have two shelter adoptees and... a standard poodle. He was purchased here. Willie I am not sure his breeder is still breeding. Janet's dogs were imported. If you email me privately I can give you what info I have about my poodle's breeder. I know she moved so it may have been her that you met.
  5. Did you see the officers credentials Did you ask for the ticket Did you note the date, time, and truck nmber and plate7 Did you file the complaint form available at LCS If you didn[t you are wasting your and our time.
  6. there have been many posts on mordida and how to handle it. Please look at the archives.
  7. Al got it right. Too bad others persist in not getting it. Harry is involved in more projects than most of you can imagine. He is pretty well aware of who is doing what in our village and Mexicans too often get the least credit.
  8. Did you name him after our esteemed Ajijic delegado? The personalities are similar!
  9. Harry B here - Nomames you are happily 100% wrong. Once you have a valid visa the mexican constitution guarantees you almost all the rights of a mexican citizen. You may not vote. You may not engage in political campaigns. In fact the municipality has encouraged expats to sign petitions relating to their quality of life. Mexicans are so pessimistic about their governments that they are very bad about signing petitions. So when there is a petition with a couple of hundred signatures, it makes a big impact. For the tianguis project we had 300 signatures. Getting this or any other project started requires a show of community support. We have done a number of petitions with mixed signers. hector knew about the Plaza work. They just didn't tell him the details nor give him more than 45 minutes notice of the start. They were just holding off to the last minute to accrue interest. As far as we can tell the money was there since last July? Hector says, in this case Chapala is responsible. The municipality applies to the state for money. The state applies to the fed for matching and when approved funding comes to the municipality for the work to be done.. I've never heard of the state doing work in a municipality. i.e. the carretera lights are on the state highway and therefore owned by the state. I'd be happy to help. it's what I do!
  10. Hector said the libramento sidewalk was a worthy project and good idea. he said the first step would be a petition from the community showing support for the project.
  11. Told Harry and he said....Excellent point! First time anyone suggested it. The Libramento isn't Ajijic, but, I'll talk to hector today and see what we can get rolling.
  12. Corruption and security have always been the answer and probably will continue to be.
