From the Ausländerbeirat….

The meeting of the Ausländerbeirat on Monday, 17th June, 2013, was anything less than spectacular. In fact, the most interesting item on the agenda was the introduction of the new “Geschäftsführer” for the committee, Thomas Eifert, who liaises with the town hall and who also cleared up the confusion that had been circulating about how many hours he works each week for the committee.

The answer for the record: 15½ hours per week, of which 4½ are directly for the committee work, 8 for consultation appointments and 3 for work on the town’s integration concept.

Maybe with 3 hours per week over the coming months working on it, that concept may be discussed at one of the committee meetings sometime this year? The integration news this week was limited mainly to the information about the Windrose e.V. moving into the newly renovated signal box opposite the station.

It was an evening when a lot of items could be summarised as “none”. Apart from the question about the working hours, there were no questions from the public. There were no messages from the town’s executive, and no messages from the Geschäftsführer other than his introduction. [Read more…]

Getting ready for the “Biotonne”

The houses in Oberursel currently have three rubbish bins:

  • Blue for paper
  • Yellow for packaging (“Grüner Punkt”) – although some houses do not have a bin and just put out the sacks

Additionally there are glass collection containers and a recycling depot where electrical goods (“Elektroschrott”) and building materials (“Bauschutt”) get taken to.  And then of course there is the special Christmas Tree collection each January.

Soon another collection will be added to the list as the “Biotonne” is introduced for things like food leftovers, fruit peel, dead flowers and other garden waste.

But just how do you introduce a new rubbish collection to a town like Oberursel? [Read more…]
