Mazarrón one of municiplaities slow to submit budget reports to central government

Mazarrón is named as one of the municipalities, in the category of those with populations in excess of 20,000 (and less than 50,000) which is delinquent in reporting its budgetary estimates to central government. Other named municipalities in this population band to have failed to submit their budget estimates by 31 October 2008 are Almuñécar (Granada), Ames (A Coruña) and Caravaca de la Cruz (Murcia).

The report indicates that the least-compliant municipalities are those with less than 5,000 inhabitants, whereas those with more than 50,000 tend to be much more timely in submitting their budgets. In current Spanish legislation there is apparently no real sanction against those who fail to comply, although fines can be imposed (but the article seems to imply this happens infrequently).
