The people of rugendorf have to pay more for waste water

The people of rugendorf have to pay more for waste water

In its last meeting of the year, the council decided on monday evening to increase the sewerage fee, to prepare the move of the meeting room to the youth center and to approve purchases for the fire department.

Wastewater charges in the main town and losau will increase by 1.15 euros per cubic meter from 1. January to then 3.18 euros. The accounts for the past four years showed a shortfall of about 175000 euro, with an average water consumption of about 37 500 cubic meters per year. Unforeseeable costs were incurred for the disposal of clear sludge (100,000 euros), due to the departure of one employee and the training of another, as well as the replacement of pumps and pipes. The new fees are initially valid until 2023. The water price remains unchanged for the time being.

Already at the end of 2017, the municipal council had decided in principle to make its current meeting room in the town hall below the municipal office and the wedding room available to the fire department in the future as a training and recreation room. Until now, this project was postponed, but now the fire department has asked to implement the plan in a timely manner.

Minister of the interior in kiel calls for urban planning against terror

Minister of the interior in kiel calls for urban planning against terror

According to schleswig-holstein’s interior minister hans-joachim grote (CDU), german cities should also use clever urban planning to contain terror risks.

"At least since breitscheidplatz, everyone knows that public festivals are endangered by a new kind of weapon, by the car, by the truck," the chairman of the conference of interior ministers told the german press agency. The towns should therefore be motivated to secure their squares – "with a town wall or a town rampart, perhaps also with the type of building around the square," says grote.

The rough municipal associations think little of his idea, bavaria’s construction minister hans reichhart (CSU) even called it "scaremongering. "We can’t wall up our squares and surround ourselves with a wall again like in the middle ages – that absolutely does not correspond to our liberal ideals of public space," reichhart told the german press agency in munich. The police take care of security.

Model house opening in oberlauter

Model house opening in oberlauter

The best service for future builders is a sample house. Down to the last detail, the model house shows how one’s own home can look one day. It is an excellent way to test the expectations that people have of their new home. In addition, it is perfectly planned and designed in terms of architecture and energy in every respect.

Complementing creative and architectural style elements

The new show house from the rodental company schopf& shows that you don’t have to do without an attractive exterior design dough. The normal rectangular shape of the ground plan has been creatively augmented. The entrance canopy integrated by the garage-carport-combination and the rough sliding door on the first floor are additional architectural style elements. In addition, great importance was attached to the color scheme, as the gray windows and the anthracite clay tiles form a modern contrast to the white exterior plastering.

But the interior of the house also offers a wealth of unusual surprises. Thus, the open kitchen with additional dining space impresses with its simplicity and functionality. A real architectural eye-catcher is the staircase with LED lighting and stainless steel rungs. The different earth tones on the walls and the wood-look tiles as a contrast to the white interior plaster are an immediate invitation to linger. You have to take a closer look to distinguish the vinyl design flooring on the upper floor from the complete tile flooring on the first floor.

"Worldwide, germany will be one of the five most important customer countries," said airbus manager chris emerson at the start of the international aerospace exhibition in berlin on tuesday. Airbus boss fabrice bregier announced the 1. January a reorganization of the plants at the european locations is planned in order to increase efficiency. For the world’s largest passenger jet, the A380, he acknowledged problems in meeting the delivery target of 30 aircraft this year.

German airlines will need more aircraft in the coming decades than the airlines from any other european country, emerson explained. At the beginning of the year, a good 670 aircraft were in service with the german airlines; by 2031, the total could be over 1300. "The value of the new aircraft at current list prices is approximately 148 billion u.S. Dollars," airbus announced. For all of europe, emerson estimated the need for 5840 cargo and passenger jets by 2031.

"Airbus has become too big, too heavy," said bregier, explaining the planned new structure. The frenchman, who has been at the helm of airbus since june, wants to achieve leaner management so that airbus can respond more quickly to market challenges than before. The reorganization also affects the largest german airbus plant in hamburg-finkenwerder, with 15,000 employees, where the first examples of the new best-selling a320neo will be built. "Hamburg has improved a lot in recent years," bregier explained.

A man searches for murderous traces in herzogenaurach

Thomas kowa keeps twitching his camera, documenting an inscription here, a coat of arms there. Kowa is no ordinary tourist to whom helmut biehler shows the city. Kowa is a crime writer.

The swiss author has been commissioned to contribute to the ars vivendi anthology of crime stories from french cities for the next criminale in may 2014. The criminale will take place next year in nurnberg and furth. 200 authors from all over the german-speaking world will meet there at the invitation of the syndicate, the association of crime writers. "I chose herzogenaurach because I associate the city with soccer", betrayal kowa to choose the place where his story becomes. Kowa is fubballaffin, indisputable. After all, he belongs to the swiss national team of writers and is amused by the playing skills of the FC criminale, which competes in the criminale once a year.

Fubball(shoes) nevertheless did not arouse kowa’s special interest in the city. He had asked in advance for a visit to an old-established pharmacy. Whether his story will revolve around a poison murder? Kowa keeps its mouth shut. In the city museum, he is interested in the history of trade, studies pele’s shoes closely and jokingly reaches for a heavy brass chandelier. A suitable murder weapon?

Topping-out ceremony at katharinenspital in forchheim: new perspectives for seniors

Topping-out ceremony at katharinenspital in forchheim: new perspectives for seniors

Nico schonherr’s team spent five weeks building the roof of the new catharine hospital. On friday, 150 guests came to listen to zimmerer schonherr pronounce the verdict. After uwe kirschstein (SPD), the mayor of oberburg, had symbolically hammered the last nail into the roof, he invited the visitors to a snack on the construction site on behalf of the united pfrundner foundation.

The topping-out ceremony at bamberger strabe 3-5 was preceded by a church service, because on friday not only was the construction progress of the senior citizens’ housing facility celebrated – on the same day there was also a kathrein celebration. Kirschstein recalled that st. Catherine was also the patron saint of education. This fits in well with the new building because the municipal library is right next door, and because the new senior citizens’ housing complex includes a district meeting place, i.E. An educational facility, said uwe kirschstein.

More freedom

Among the guests was former lord mayor franz stumpf, who had pushed the project forward in his last years in office. "I am proud of the beautiful building", said franz stumpf "and i am also proud that it is accepted by the population". The senior citizens’ residential facility with its flexible offers means an "improvement in care in the region". In the future, residents will be able to request care: "this gives individuals more freedom because they are no longer dependent on the rules of the house."
