New burgers’ reception, the mayor’s report, the honoring of deserving burgers and, finally, questions from the 200 or so visitors: the burgers’ meeting in the marktstetten sports hall on thursday evening lasted almost four hours and still had a lot to offer.
There was criticism of mayor thomas reichert and the city council members for the state of the kindergarten. The mayor had already mentioned this in his report, explaining that when the expansion of the kindergarten was completed in 2015, the space there had already become too small, and so containers were set up in 2016 as a temporary solution, and at the same time a new expansion plan was started. The problem, however, was that there was not enough space on the site and the elementary school next to it was to be renovated and included in the planning. Not an easy task, since various authorities had to be involved in the process due to the grants. But reichert also admitted that it would have been possible to act a little faster. In the coming days, however, there is an appointment with the government of lower franconia, which he wants to use together with employees of the administrative community, a city councilor and pastor peter stier as chairman of the sponsors’ association, in order to move forward in the process.
Despite these statements, there were a number of objections from parents, employees and even burghers, who spoke massively against the container solution. There was talk of a "shithole, of "unreasonable demand, of "musty smell" the speech and also stier appealed to mayor and council, kindergarten and school "absolute priority" to give. Reichert promised to keep the kindergarten staff in particular better informed about further developments.
