Water was the focus of the last weitramsdorf town council meeting this year on several occasions. And on monday evening, in the training room of the fire station, there was good news for the citizens of burgen: the wastewater fees will remain stable in 2019.
3.20 euros per cubic meter of discharged wastewater must pay the weitramsdorfer also in the future, this calculation the body unanimously approved. Earlier, managing director heiko geub had explained the fees for the drainage facility: the projected requirement of around 698,000 euros is offset by basic fees of 56,000 euros and discharge fees of around 642,000. With an expected volume of 200,000 cubic meters, the discharge fee remains unchanged. "Taking into account the expected income and expenses and the previous year’s results, we can keep the initiation fee at the same level", said geub. Only the previous year, the municipal council had decided to increase the fees by 55 cents from 2.65 to 3.20 euros.
Canal to become rougher
The second item on the agenda was also about wastewater: with one vote against, the committee voted in favor of extending the combined sewer in the new "hoher rain" development area more roughly than still in september decided to plan. The council thus followed the recommendation of the commissioned engineering firm HTS-plan (kronach), even though there is a bottleneck at the connecting manhole to the existing structure. The office argued that there was no risk of backwater because there were no house connections to the canal in this section, nor were any planned. On top of that, the water management office in kronach had also recommended the canal extension.
