Email message from Tamarindo Recycling July 17th, 2010

Dear friends and neighbors of Tamarindo and Langosta,

It is with deepest apologies that we offer you the following correction of misinformation that we announced several months ago:

We were wrong when we informed all of you that the fee for trash collection provided by the Municipalidad de Santa Cruz is included in your annual property taxes.  It is not included in your property taxes.  It is a separate fee.  We sincerely apologize for spreading our grave misunderstanding to all of you.

You need to pay for your property’s trash collection at the Rentas department at the Municipalidad de Santa Cruz.  This office is in their main building by the park.  If you would like to call them, their phone number is 2680-0101, ext. 202 and ask for Leticia.  This fee is payable by trimesters and you may pay for as many trimesters at a time as you would like.  If your property is already in the Muni’s computer system, you only need to give them your name in order for them to tell you what you owe.  If not, you need to take a copy of your property’s plano catastro to the Catastro department before they can calculate the amount in Rentas.  According to our phone conversation with Leticia, a single family home might pay about 10,000c per trimester.  (That is not a promise; that is a repetition of information from Leticia.)

Please cooperate with the Municipalidad as they are providing an excellent service and helping us to keep Tamarindo clean.

And again, please forgive our mistake.

Gary is retiring

July 13, 2010

Dear Clients and Colleagues,

This letter is to announce the retirement of Gary Clarke and to express our appreciation for the valuable contribution he made to our company during his career with ABC Real Estate.

Gary’s and Jolene’s efforts and achievements were much appreciated by all colleagues and clients of the company.

We will find it hard to replace their blend of skills and experience.

They have worked very hard in their career and we believe that they have earned the right to enjoy more time with family and friends and to pursue all the projects they have in mind.

We offer them our best wishes for health and happiness in their well deserved retirement.

Resolution Moratorium

July 2, 2010

Here is the resolution about the Moratorium:

Resolucion 1410-2010-SETENA-1

21 pages in total. Starting at page 10, it states the solutions about Playa Tamarindo and then Playa Langosta. Compared to other areas it says that Tamarindo is more complex. Therefore it refers to the recent Decree established by the President until the Plano Regulador is in place and as well the last existing Plano Regulador has to be considered and respected.

Feel free to leave a comment.
