If you own property, live in or around Fethiye for all or part of the year then these regular updates of Fethiye Council news will be of interest to you.
Council Tax Due
The system for making payment of property council tax has now been revised following the local elections and boundary changes.
Payments can now be made at either your local council area office or at the main Belediye office in Fethiye.
Despite some people claiming they have been able to pay water bills at certain places, the Council have no knowledge of this and have stated that even up to last Wednesday when the Governor of Mugla came to town for a meeting, it still remained unresolved.
The drainage and road reinstatement project and the road improvement project around Calis are split between two agencies. Drainage is managed by the DSI agency and the roads by Mugla Buyuksehir Belediye.
It seems the DSI has now exhausted its budget for this project with many of the Calis and other canal side roads remaining unmade after recent work.
Following the meeting with Mugla Governor last week, the problem remains unresolved and has now been escalated to Ankara.
Of course, while this situation remains, residents can’t understand why certain roads (like around the Sunday market area) continue to be improved yet the road behind the beach hotels remains unmade. He has promised further updates when he has more information.
