Accommodating more than twice as many asylum seekers in the same area – this request of the district office for the container facilities in Eichenau was unanimously rejected by the municipal council at its most recent meeting.
Eichenau – According to the will of the district authority, 128 instead of the previous 52 refugees are to be accommodated in the existing facility. In addition, another container is to be added, another is being dismantled.
When asked, Mayor Peter Münster (FDP) spoke of an excessive burden.
Eichenau now wants to defend itself against this densification. With a broad cross-party majority, the municipal council instructed the administration to examine all conceivable legal remedies. Under certain circumstances, this may also mean a lawsuit before the administrative court.

"What we have to reject from a moral point of view alone," Claus Guttenthaler (FW) summed up the mood. As a partnership officer, he is also involved with Vishgorod and the Ukrainian refugees. The mere fact that eight beds are now to be placed in a four-bed room is too much to ask. Prayer and homework rooms would also be converted. In this way, the practice of religion is hindered.
Martin Eberl (SPD) asked whether people should be stacked. It is the right of a municipality to resist. Celine Lauer (CSU) and Elmar Ströhmer (FW) spoke of "cramming together". Integration consultant Yasemin Bilgic (Greens) still advised to check the doubling from the fire police.
In the course of the discussion, it was also noted that doubling not only makes integration in the community more difficult, but also increases the stress factor among the residents themselves. "It's too much for everyone involved," says family consultant Angela Heilmeier (FW), also with regard to the childcare places to be provided.
For Marion Behr and Rike Schiele (both Greens), it nevertheless remained important to think as a community about "what we can still do from our side to better integration".

This is what the district office says
The district office in Fürstenfeldbruck refers to the task of accommodating the refugees assigned to it. The district office is dependent on third parties offering it suitable properties, according to a spokeswoman. She goes on to explain: "The path of creating additional capacity by increasing occupancy in existing shelters is preferable to other emergency shelters and measures." Of course, such a measure is taken only when there is no other possibility.
As Mayor Peter Münster explained, the district authority could certainly override the decision of the municipal council. But he also said: "We have to think about setting an example."
