Only one item in the investment program caused discussion: the application by SC oberreichenbach for a grant to build a new artificial turf pitch with fencing and lighting. 15 000 euro the municipality wants to provide for it, which seemed to be a lot to some municipal councillors. Mayor klaus hacker explained: "the SCO has not applied for a long time and the small field soccer field is mainly for the benefit of the children.
We can invest a large sum of money in this area." finally, the motion was approved by nine votes to three. The SC oberreichenbach can therefore be pleased.
After the presentation of the budget, there was a discussion about the community forest of oberreichenbach: there, the bark beetle has spread and attacked almost all spruces. For the local council, there is only one solution, which the forestry office also recommends: "flatten everything." new trees are planted as a matter of course.
Lastly, it was decided that they would meet at regular intervals to bid farewell to the former municipal councillors.
