Dispute is not yet over

The municipality of strullendorf wants to earn 15 million euros in administration and spend 15 million, the property budget is to include around 10 million euros and investments and investment decreases are to be financed with a loan of four million: the draft budget for 2018 divides the municipal council.
The fact that the CSU, which voted unanimously in favor, was two men short and the burgerblock only two out of three council members present said yes, prevented the vote on the 26th of march from going through. June a close vote. New list and SPD reject the draft unanimously – and justify the uniform no primary with lack of sustainability and escalating costs around two prestigious objects.

To make do or to break?

Christian beickert (SPD) calculated, for example, that the expenses for the planned integrative community center (IGZ) were only budgeted at 400,000 euros this year, but that a further 250,000 euros would actually be required for the acceptance of the groundwork and the work on the outdoor facilities. Furthermore, it is already known that the planned costs for the rental of the containers for the kindergarten in geisfeld will not only cost the estimated 180,000 euros, but double that amount.
"The SPD faction is of the opinion that the 2.5 million euros provided for in the budget and investment plan for the next few years will be far from sufficient as its own contribution to the IGZ", so beickert. The SPD assumes that the prestigious project will cost the municipality at least 4.2 million euros as its own contribution and suggests that the IGZ project "must be reviewed once again".
According to andreas kehl (neue liste), the plans for the IGZ, in contrast to the municipal possibilities, are also "not a bit of a mess, but a lot of a mess". This is already evident in the transitional building that is currently being constructed on the former land of the kachelmann company.
The SPD even makes a concrete proposal on this subject and argues that the interim solution should not simply be abandoned after two and a half years: "we should consider whether the provisional solution on the kachelmann site can be used as a final solution for the renovation and new construction of necessary rooms instead of the grone building."
the new list sees in the current budget draft in addition the topic flood protection neglected, expects necessary expenditures with the requirement plan of the fire-brigades or also important desirability of the middle school, which must remain compellingly attractive. "We must understand that our municipal budget is not a self-service store and everything that is needed can be done. In view of the upcoming investments, we must concentrate on our obligatory tasks and take a very close look at the voluntary services to see what is still feasible and what is not." in addition to a critical examination of the prestigious IGZ project, kehl also proposed a financial cap for the music school – and liked "prestige and profiling projects demanded by some" at least put it on ice. "We are referring, for example, to a blessing hall in strullendorf, a connection to the B 505, but also to the recurring topic of bypass roads."

Forming backlogs

It is, however, "welcome that we have now achieved at least an approximation of cost recovery for municipal utilities".

It would be desirable for us to follow the example of other municipalities that build up reserves through their fees and then also use them to finance their investments." in order to get a better grip on finances and to work in a cross-factional, solution-oriented manner, the new list recommends the establishment of a budget committee.
The CSU, on the other hand, describes the budget as balanced and the prestigious building as a lighthouse project. For the parliamentary group, georg dresel spoke of the planned IGZ new building as a cross-generational undertaking which, in addition to social aspects, also guaranteed local development from an architectural point of view – and the loan was also fully realistic in the current low-interest phase and taking into account the still acceptable per capita debt. "Strullendorf is a good and livable community that can still increase its attractiveness through debt, especially if one thinks in the long term."
That "everything else would mean standstill", mayor wolfgang desel (CSU) also confirmed after the meeting: "this is not just about prestige objects, but about public services. He does not understand the excitement about the current budget at all. "Whoever says A must also say B: all figures are based on individual municipal council resolutions from the past and the costs are decided in this framework." for the rough final on 17.July the mayor hopes for broad approval.
