Voula Karatzas has been hired by the municipality and looks at problems, situations that occur in the daily life here. Some things seem very straightforward but you sometimes need to bring it to the attention of the right person. Thanks Voula for the immediate help.

Working together for the animals

The municipality in the person of vice mayor mrs. Athina Daki have spoken last week to the spokesperson of the national animal and environment federation Mrs. Angela Martsioka about solutions for the animal stray problem on Skopelos. Mrs. Marstioka was informed about the current problems and an action plan that the municipality has set up:

-The municipality will be signing a contract with a private veterinarian for sterilization, chips, vaccinations and other veterinary operations.
-Distribution of food for the feeding of stray animals in direct correlation with sterilization.
-Producing a municipal information brochure which will be distributed via the water bill about the obligations of animal owners (micro chips, health books for animals and welfare conditions).
-Development of a data bank of the Municipality with the predominant animals of the island.
-Working with the Police and the Public Prosecutor’s Office on complaints, violations and prohibition of adopting animals by people who have left or abused in the past.
-Inviting volunteer veterinarians for free mass sterilization of strays.

The Mill / Ο Μυλος

The Mylos/Kastro area used to be an area with many famous music places, bars and taverna’s. A lot of people will remember Kastro bar which was founded by Ioannis ‘Zoro’ Rafailidis

The last couple of years the only music place that is left is Anatoli, a establishment where you can hear live traditional Greek music and eat. Georgos Xidaris is the owner. He is famous in Greece and he and his sons play every night in the summer.

Last Friday a new bar/cafeteria opened on Milos square. It is called the Mill/Ο Μυλος. They have souvlaki, gyros and also do take out. You can also just get a drink. Good luck with the new business.
