The parents in the village are worried: There is a rumor that the Groebenzell municipal council will speak out against the purchase of air filter systems.
Gröbenzell - The topic will be on the agenda this Thursday evening when the committee meets in Wildmooshalle I.
Numerous parents decided to watch the session as a spectator, as the daily newspaper found out.
For the meeting, the administrative staff gathered information on funding opportunities and a wide variety of statements that are currently available about the filter systems in the room and made them available to the members of the municipal council. As press officer Katharina Müller explained to the daily newspaper request, the town hall has not yet received a definitive statement as to whether the face-to-face lessons can be maintained with mobile air purification systems. Nor is there any clarity as to what relief one should actually expect in the case of a purchase.
"The local council could make decisions much better if the ministry not only promised us funding, but could also present the relief at the same time," explains Müller.
The same applies to meetings of local associations, especially for choir rehearsals.
As part of the citizens' meeting last Friday, the chairwoman of the women's choir, Alice Trapp, wanted to know from Mayor Martin Schäfer whether the community would participate in the purchase of air filters for the choirs.
The devices should make rehearsals possible again in the small room in the old school.
Schäfer had promised Trapp to make inquiries about this.
The inquiry has already been made, but an answer from the district office as the responsible infection control authority is still pending.
The room is currently approved for up to 18 singers.
However, the women's choir consists of around 30 members, the coarse tones even count 45. According to the city hall, air purification devices do not replace the infection-protection-compliant ventilation and also do not allow the minimum distance between the singers, which is two meters, to be undercut.
The Gröbenzell parents are not the first to hope that the air filter systems will provide more protection for their offspring.
There is currently a fundraising campaign in Olching, and equipment has already been purchased in Eichenau with the support of the families.
