Anyone who breaks confidentiality destroys trust

A comment by BERTHOLD BLESENKEMPERBocholter's policy calls on the Bürgerstiftung to present new and much slimmed down plans for the planned BürgerKulturHaus in the former Schützenhaus. That's what the BBV writes today. The newspaper reports and quotes in detail from a non-public meeting of the Council of Elders of the city. Accordingly, the factions do not want to jeopardize the state funding of the now 48,5 million euro expensive town hall renovation and reject the application for the 10 million euro funding for the 16,5 million expensive community foundation plans. Thus, after the rejected Theissen solution now also the community foundation solution for the old shooting club on the loose. Let's go to the comment. To say it straight away: I am biased. As a convinced founder and as a shooter, I personally support the community foundation plans. Because, in my opinion, it would be a good idea to create a big house with a large hall for numerous cultural and traditional clubs, carnivals, stages and choirs. Their committees today often meet in back rooms of restaurants. And the active people often have to practice their hobbies in only suitably suitable rooms in Barlo, Spork, Herzebocholt or even Wesel. As a citizen of this city, I am also convinced that Bocholt needs a large hall - both as a location factor and for social life , It can not be that future generations with the last impression in the study or education are dismissed, Bocholt is such a Kaff that you can not even celebrate a proper school ball. This will take revenge if Bocholt companies have to compete even more for new blood in a few years. "Nörgens bäter as in Bokelt" will be a joke to whole student generations. The volunteers are more likely to meet the behavior of the city council. For many, politics is no longer a reliable partner. And for the following reasons. Both the Theissen solution and the community foundation solution to tilt and then - as the CDU parliamentary group leader Burkhard Weber, whose faction has contributed to this mess much - just times smugly and hopplahopp demand new plans, is a joke , The board members and volunteers, who (unlike the local politicians) receive no allowances or attendance fees up to 400 Euro, have invested countless hours in plans, arrangements, negotiations and discussions over the years. The behavior of politics is a resounding slap in the face for them. The parliamentary groups suggest that the BürgerKulturHaus plans would jeopardize the renovation of the town hall. That is simply wrong. The BürgerKulturHaus plans endanger only the state promotion of the Ratshaussanierung. Exactly two years ago, when the costs of renovating the town hall were still at 37,5 million euros, there was no talk of state funding and the BürgerKulturHaus was not endangered. But as soon as Dusseldorf beckons with money, the renovation of the town hall suddenly becomes eleven million euros more expensive. Ten million of them (exactly the sum that the community foundation would need as a subsidy) are allocated to a new, additional staggered storey on the landmarked town hall. For this squat but not even the economic benefits are proven, so that its meaning must be called into doubt. Unbelievable how administration and policy again and again try to manipulate public opinion, in the confidential discussions and non-public meetings even of top-level committees targeted details are blurred and information is scattered. This is shabby and discredits the entire city council. Anyone who breaks the promised confidentiality destroys trust - and definitely. A compromise would have been possible. The Civic Foundation dils their BürgerKulturHaus plans and council as well as administration on their part of the town hall renovation plans. Already there would have been money for both projects. But in the end, many citizens are left with the bitter impression that their painstakingly devised project is being sacrificed for an overpriced noble variant of the new town hall. Tonight at 19 o'clock the persons concerned meet in the Gasthaus Zur Glocke. The meeting is public. Everyone can come. [...]
