Because the local authority wanted to see the decision to demolish and rebuild the town hall in Rottach-Egern publicly, the local council dealt with the issue again.
Rottach-Egern Mayor Christian Köck (CSU) named numbers and dates for the first time in the course of the renewed treatment of the feasibility study and the further procedure in the city hall.
In doing so, he once again looked back at how the decision to build a new building had come about.
As part of a study, the current and future space requirements, the general use of the property in the center and the condition of the existing building and its deficiencies were examined.
On the other hand, the costs were determined.
“A renovation would cost us 6.5 million euros.
A big amount, ”said Köck.
Thereupon the town council discussed intensively - also about the value of the property - and came to the conclusion that the town hall should remain in the center.
Group spokesmen explain reasons for their decision
A new building came into play. It is to be built a little further away from the northern main road in the same place, the rear area of the property is to be left open. The municipality expects costs between 7.5 and eight million euros. That is also a large amount. Köck explained: “There will be more tasks for the communities in the future. That is why we want to keep our development opportunities open accordingly. "
Before the municipal council again voted unanimously and this time in public for the demolition and the new construction of the town hall, Köck asked the faction spokesman to explain their motives.
For Stefan Niedermaier (Blitz) it was the dilapidation of the building, compliance with fire protection and energy requirements: “It is nonsense to renovate the building for so much money.
And it shouldn't be a splendid building either. ”Alexandra Wurmser (CSU) stated that the decision to build a new building was the result of dealing with the issue for ten to 15 years.
"We also want something good to be created for the community's employees." SPD man Jakob Appoltshauser saw it similarly: "Decent jobs are important."
“We cannot start before 2024” - the new town hall should also be the topic of the next citizens' meeting
"A new building makes sense," said Thomas Tomaschek (Greens). The town hall should not be a functional building and should relate to the history of the house. And it should last for the next 100 years. For Gabriele Schultes-Jaskolla (FWG), the arguments for the demolition had more weight despite all the “familiarity” of the existing building: “We're talking about the use and responsibility of taxpayers' money.” The new town hall should be a functional building that meets the work demands corresponds to the future. Köck emphasized that it should fit the location and be representative. The community also wants to live up to its role model function here.
In the transition period, the administration has to be outsourced. According to Köck, discussions are already underway in this regard, because you cannot send all employees to the home office. Pre-planning would take most of the time. But if the decision to demolish is made, things have to be done quickly: “We cannot start before 2024. But we can think hard about how we will be available to the citizens during the transition phase. ”The mayor also wants to make the new town hall the topic of the citizens' meeting on November 4th. It will keep the congregation busy for the next few years.
