Government / Politics / statement to city council
Spanish term or phrase: limpia de corriente (Mexico)
Here is the context, a man is lodging a complaint about his neighbour to the city council. This is the part where he mentions all the documentation which he is bringing with him as proof.
"Por otro lado comparezco para exhibir doce fotografias en original, copia de escrituras, de pago de ***predio y limpia de corriente dos mil dos*** y oficio numero de folio xxxx de fecha..." etc.
What I am thinking is that this means that he is presenting the receipts for his property taxes and public sanitation which are up-to-date for the year 2002. Or does it mean that his electric bill is up-to-date or none of the above? I can't quite get what this is supposed to mean. Please help!!
