District Administrator Zwicker welcomes judgment on the car toll

The German car toll is not compatible with EU law. The European Court of Justice (ECJ) ruled this Tuesday in Luxembourg on the grounds that the tax levied on foreign car owners was discriminatory. District Administrator Kai Zwicker expressly welcomed this decision. In this context, the district council recalled the resolution of the year 2014 written on the initiative of the EUREGIO, in which numerous mayors and chief administrative officials on both sides of the border are party-spanning against the toll plans of the Federal Government. At the time, the signers feared, among other things, that trade, tourism, gastronomy, and leisure and event companies would suffer substantial losses of revenue if the toll plans were implemented. Dutch customers could not attend as a result. But also the cross-border job placement would be made more difficult by the toll, because Dutch commuters would have to pay for the step across the border. "With the ECJ decision, new boundaries are avoided," Dr. Zwicker and underlined: "This is in all of our interest: The people and the economy in Westmünsterland can thus continue to benefit from free traffic."

CDU inquiry on microplastics in Bocholt

Which measures could reduce the burden of microplastics in Bocholt? This is one of several questions that the CDU Group will have for the upcoming meeting of the Environment Committee at 4. July presents. Barbara Fölting, CDU city councilor, explains: "Microplastic is difficult to degrade. Once released into the environment, the tiny plastic particles are subject to further fragmentation, allowing them to pass through modern drinking water facilities. Thus, the small plastic particles also get into the human body, while the health consequences are not predictable. "Therefore, we should urgently avoid the possibility that microplastics get into the environment, Fölting calls. But that is exactly what happens for example by many conventional artificial turf and mini-pitches. The microplastic granules are flushed through precipitation, wind and abrasion into the sewage system and thus released into the environment. According to the manufacturer, 250 to 4000 kilograms of microplastics are estimated to be held annually in a modern artificial turf pitch. "Even if a blockage of the artificial turf pitches in Bocholt is currently not under discussion, we should consider how we can better protect the environment," said Group Chairman Burkhard Weber. The CDU Group would like to know against this background whether it is the artificial turf pitches and small playgrounds in Bocholt are systems that reduce the uptake of microplastic particles into water. However, in the case of conventional artificial turf pitches, the CDU is faced with the question of which environmentally friendly alternatives exist, whether the existing artificial turf pitches can be converted and what possibilities exist for reducing the output of microplastic particles. In addition, the CDU would like to know from the administration whether there are any other sources known in the urban area that exert a load of microplastic particles and by what measures the burdens can be reduced here.

CDU inquiry on microplastics in Bocholt

What measures could be taken to reduce the burden of microplastics in Bocholt? This is one of several questions that the CDU Group will ask for the upcoming meeting of the Environment Committee at 4. Barbara Fölting, CDU city councilor, explains: "Microplasticity is only moderately degradable. Once released into the environment, the tiny plastic particles are subject to further fragmentation, allowing them to pass through modern drinking water systems. Thus, the small plastic particles also get into the human body, while the health consequences are still unpredictable. Therefore, we should as far as possible urgently avoid that microplastic gets into the environment, Fölting calls. But this is exactly what happens for example through many conventional turf pitches and small pitches. The microplastic granules are flushed through precipitation, wind and abrasion into the sewage system, thus entering the environment. According to the manufacturer, 250 to 4000Kilogramm Mikroplastik are held annually in a modern artificial turf pitch. "Even if a blockage of the artificial turf pitches in Bocholt is currently not a topic of discussion, we should consider how we can protect the environment more ??," Group Chairman Burkhard Weber. The CDU Group would like to know in this context, whether it is the Kunstrasenplätzen and small pitches in Bocholt are systems that reduce the uptake of microplastic particles into water. However, in the case of conventional synthetic turf pitches, questions arise for the CDU as to what eco-friendly alternatives exist, whether the existing artificial turf pitches can be converted and what possibilities exist for reducing the yield of microplastic particles. In addition, the CDU would like to know from the administration whether there are any other sources known in the urban area that exert a load of microplastic particles and by what means the burdens can be reduced here.
