Financially, things will soon be getting down to business in Moosburg


Even if Moosburg has so far been financially well maneuvered through the Corona crisis: In the coming year, the city will have to tap into its savings.

Even if Moosburg has so far been financially well maneuvered through the Corona crisis: In the coming year, the city will have to tap into its savings.


- So far, the city of Moosburg has been well positioned, but now the savings are coming to an end: This is shown by the key data of the 2022 budget, which the Finance Committee started on Thursday with the review of the administrative budget.

So far, it has come through the crisis well

At the end of 2020, the city of Moosburg had a proud reserve of 35 million euros, with which you can get through the corona crisis and hold on to major projects such as the construction of the indoor swimming pool.

In the report on the status of 2021, treasurer Martin Krumbucher had good news: the withdrawal from reserves, estimated at 24 million euros, can be significantly reduced.

So far, 13.8 million of the savings have been used, and the treasurer reckons that by the end of the year it will be between 16 and 19 million euros.

In view of the pandemic-related loss of revenue in the administrative budget, this is a success.

"We are on the right track," said Finance Officer Jörg Kästl.

In view of the great challenge, however, he also warned against taking a casual look at the new budget.

Far from normal

This was clearly evident from the key data for the 2022 budget, which, with a total volume of 85 million euros, is well above 2021 (79.6 million). This is divided into an administrative budget with 47.3 million euros and an asset budget with 37.7 million. Normally, a plus should be earned in the administrative budget in order to move the money for upcoming projects into the asset budget. The city of Moosburg is far from this normal state of municipal financing. In the 2021 budget, a repatriation of 3.8 million euros from the property budget to the administrative budget has been entered, and in 2022 this repayment will amount to 2.4 million euros. During the budget consultation, treasurer Martin Krumbucher made it clear that the money should flow in the other direction again in the medium term.

City will have to use up savings

In the coming year the city will also use up its considerable savings. The cornerstones of the budget are a withdrawal from reserves of 14.2 million euros, and a loan of 15 million euros is to be used for this purpose. However, the city is cautiously optimistic about the new year and expects increases in the most important sources of income again after the difficult Corona years. The largest number is income tax participation, which at 11.4 million is around 400,000 euros above the previous year. The trade tax increases by one million compared to 2021 to the rate of 8.5 million euros. The income tax revenue then goes directly to the Freising district, which can expect around 11.4 million euros to be paid from Moosburg.

Traditionally, the series of budget meetings of the Finance Committee started with dealing with the administrative budget.

Mayors and treasurers answered many detailed questions from committee members.

However, the figures at hand remained almost unchanged.

Some points are examined more closely internally, but savings of only over 3000 euros were made.

The budget meetings will continue next week - with the handling of motions from the city council and the items of the property budget.
