Mayor wants regulated financing

"Red card for strabs !" – the bavarian-wide campaign of the free voters for the referendum to abolish the street extension contribution statute (strabs), which was successfully carried out by the free voters of gobweinstein in front of the edeka market with about 300 signatures. Quite a few of those who signed the petition had believed that the CSU-led state government had already abolished the road expansion fees, which have to be paid by the residents of a road that is to be newly built or rehabilitated. But this is not the case, as mdl thorsten glauber () clarified.
Currently there is no need for action for mayor hanngorg zimmermann (BMG), because at the moment no road is being expanded in the municipal area, in whose costs the residents had to participate. The last mabnahme two years ago was the expansion of the anliegerstrabe in the liebenau in kleingesee, which the burghers had to help pay for.
The next step, however, was the extension of the local road in hartenreuth in the direction of leutzdorf. A citizens’ meeting had already been planned in hartenreuth, but according to zimmermann this is no longer necessary, since all parties in the state parliament are in favor of abolishing the strabs.
In any case, the market town of gobweinstein will no longer be sending out any notices of charges for road improvements, in accordance with the recommendation of the bavarian municipal association. The first to benefit from this will now be the people of hartenreuth, according to zimmermann.
However, he wants a clear statement from the state government on the financing of road construction in the municipalities. Either there is a lump-sum demand per kilometer of local road expansion or a demand based on the number of measurements taken. "We want to have this settled before the state elections", emphasizes zimmermann. No solution for him is the increase in property taxes. Because then the citizens would still have to pay.
Gobweinsteins -chief rainer polster was very satisfied with the signature collection campaign. He assumes that the free voters in bavaria will easily collect 100,000 signatures. 25,000 people are needed to carry out a petition for a referendum.
As glauber points out, the road expansion fees are not only unfair, but can also threaten the existence of many residents.
