Is there a car parked somewhere on your street blocking the truck? That's what happens to us on occasion.

Wow! They're still coming everyday in SAT, although sometimes not until dark. They must be short trucks or staff. Or maybe they're all assigned to cleaning up after Carneval?

Why not take a picture and take it down to city hall and ask when they expect to clean up the mess? Tell them the rats are into it at night. Be good if you could get a shot of that!

Maybe rethink donations for things that taxes should pay for and ask what tax money is being used for. Gringos have been suckers paying for things taxes should pay for. Is any of the money foreigners give accounted for?

Intercasa, what are the big taxes expats pay?  

Property tax is very low.  Besides hidden IVA taxes included in the price on goods and services, what else are expats paying?  

I can think of some of the taxes expats "conveniently" don't pay in the area.  

Intercasa, I don't know what the Chapala budget is.  How much tax revenue does the Chapala municipo collect?  Where does the tax revenue come from? Property taxes?  Hotel taxes?  Business license fee's? Is Walmart the largest business and revenue producer?  How much IVA tax stays in Chapala?

I just don't see much money. Chapala really have doesn't have much of a tax base.

Im all for accountability. Money is misused and things arent fixed and the government begs the gringos for money as they know the Mexicans would tar and feather them for asking for money when they pay taxes which are diverted and stolen and nobody ever investigates.

IVA is federal so doesnt stay locally. Hotel tax goes to state, municipality collects business license tax, building permits and property taxes.

Well yesterday the big truck came by from the big streets and caught itself on the wires and headed down to your neck of the woods. Have not seen the little ford truck in a week. I think our normal white truck bit the dust and these folks don't know our hood. Oh well if it stays bad you might want to bring your trash down to our corner as they always seem to hit it at least more often than your corner. Time will tell.

There needs to be a fundraiser. The 1st Annual Basura BBQ?

We already bought tires for one of the small trucks a year or so ago.

Zed, how exactly did you do that? Did you buy the tires and install them yourself? Witness them being installed? Hand the money over to the basura guys? Hand the money over to the ayuntaniento? Hand the money over to Harry? If so, exactly how did Harry do it?

We went to the tire store, bought the tires and gave them to the driver.

Just for an FYI every peso I gave Harry was tracked and I never saw anything "funny" and I looked. I just trust him now. On the tires CB asked for help and we gave it to him as we trust him with money also.

Intercasa, you are prophetic.  Pope Francis said the same thing yesterday directly to EPN and his crew "live" on TV, for the whole world to see and hear.  Could this be a changing point in history for Mexico?
