New sewage treatment plant: The focus is now on the cost burden

The municipal council of Irschenberg is focusing more on the refinancing of the new sewage treatment plant.

The Finance Committee is now to follow the project more closely.

Irschenberg – Applications are hardly made publicly in the Irschenberg municipal council.

It was all the more surprising that Florian Kirchberger (FDP/Active Citizens) found a clear majority with his initiative.

At the meeting on Monday evening, he requested that his application for the sewage treatment plant be dealt with publicly rather than non-publicly.

This request was supported by three dissenting votes.

In terms of content, Kirchberger had suggested installing a so-called sewage works committee, which should accompany the planning of the new sewage treatment plant in addition to the working group and be filled according to the balance of power in the municipal council.

He emphasized that the municipal council could not be accused of any recognizable errors, but that the municipality had deficits in public relations.

That's why they bought "professional help".

With said committee one could gain plus points in the communication.

"We want to get in front of the wave."

Refusal to sewage works committee

Klaus Waldschütz (non-party) thought the finance committee was in better hands for the new building and its refinancing: “You can get great advice there.

We don't have to set up anything new for this.” Waldschütz followed up on this in the direction of Kirchberger: “I have a problem with applications.

Pressure creates counter-pressure." Kirchberger took the initiative positively: "If the finance committee gets a job, that's okay."

Also read the comment on the topic:

Trust through dialogue

On the other hand, second mayor Marinus Eyrainer (FWG Irschenberg) saw the issue better off in the municipal council.

Marinus Waldschütz (FWG Reichersdorf) also agreed: "Everyone has to have a say."

Technical support with the calculation

Maria Drexl (FWG Niklasreuth) also advocated that the municipal council should seek external advice - if necessary from the district office - on how best to allocate the costs.

A special meeting of the municipal council makes sense for this, because the topic would go beyond the scope of a regular meeting.

Brigitte Klamt (FDP/Active Citizens) welcomed this approach and spoke out in favor of dealing with the topic of financing in the near future: “We have few connections and a large amount of water.

External advice would be good.”

This has already been decided, replied Mayor Klaus Meixner (CSU) and spoke out in favor of the decision being made by the municipal council.

A preliminary consultation could definitely take place in the Finance Committee.

But you don't need a resolution for this, after which Kirchberger withdrew his application.

"Don't want to overwhelm anyone"

Regina Gruber (FWG Irschenberg) also emphasized that when it comes to refinancing, "nobody wants to be burdened with anything that cannot be managed".

The topic can only be dealt with when concrete figures are available.

Meixner agreed: “If the specialist planners provide figures, we will have a new cost estimate by autumn.” However, the distribution key can be decided in advance.

Hans Maier (FDP/Active Citizens) also supported Gruber's statement: "We do what is least burdensome for the citizen.

We're well on schedule and should keep going.” What Meixner confirmed: “We want to distribute it as fairly as possible.”

Citizen's application: Admissibility confirmed

The citizens' application that Werner Freundl, Kathrin Huber and Robert Hofner submitted to the municipality together with 79 valid citizens' signatures was not a big issue.

From the point of view of the administration, all the prerequisites are met.

In fact, 43 more signatures were delivered than the one percent of citizens required by the municipal code.

The municipal council determined the admissibility and will deal with the issue over the next three months.

As reported, the signatories are requesting that the municipal council commission at least two further concepts from experienced, independent engineering firms that present the possibilities for renovating the sewage treatment plant.

The costs are then evaluated from three options.

Furthermore, alternatives for upgrading the sewage treatment plant are to be examined.
