Informing residents in the Eppsteiner Straße

A new information centre has opened in the Eppsteiner Straße to inform local residents about the de-contamination work taking place there.

Located at Eppsteiner Straße 11 – the property which was used as a shop and is currently part of the discussions about the health side-effects of the matter – it is open Tuesday from 10am until noon and Thursday from 3pm until 5.30pm.

Members of the environmental office in the town hall will be there at those times to explain the work taking place and to answer any questions that local residents may have.

On the first day, which happened to fall on Shrove Tuesday, there were only three visitors to the shop, one of whom also happens be a member of the German branch of “Friends of the Earth” (BUND) who have been arguing with the town about the way the work has been carried out and how the public have been informed in the past.

Alderman Christof Fink, who was also in the shop on the first day, said that it was too early to draw any conclusions from the low visitor numbers, although he did comment that if people were very unsettled about the matter then more would probably have come.

He also pointed out that a number of questions had been asked directly at the town hall.

At present it is not known how long the information centre will remain in the shop, the de-contamination is set to continue for at least another year.


Bicycle shop broken into

A bicycle shop in the Holzweg was broken into in the early hours of last Monday morning when someone broke the shop window with a hammer and stole the mountain bike that was at the front of the display.

A witness approached the thief who then proceeded to ride towards the witness.  The two collided, the witness being hurting their arm.  The thief then left the bicycle behind and ran off in the direction of the old town.

He is described as slim, of Mediterranean appearance, around 16 to 18 years old and approximately 1.65m tall. He was wearing a black jumper with back tracksuit trousers.
