Brauhaus project threatens to fail:
Social list Bocholt calls for municipal performance hall for Bocholt
After the brewery project threatens to fail apparently, the voters community social list Bocholt again raises the question of whether on the Kubaai site an event hall can be integrated to celebrate the need for events such as school and club celebrations, company parties and comedy events. The voters' community has submitted an appropriate council request to the mayor's office, Peter Nebelo, which they will meet in the main committee meeting on 11. September wants to have answered.
Rainer Sauer (chairman) now wants to know if the administration sees the need for an event hall and how she now wants to deal with it and explains:
"A city the size of Bocholt with 73000 residents must not look at how the citizens of Bocholt have to look for venues. If the city wants to keep its inhabitants together and provide you with a forum for leisure and culture, it has to be active here and act as a motor and function. So far, the focus has been more on major projects that citizens are rather opposed to. Even the Kubaai Bridge for around 2,5 million euros is not well received by the population. And, of course, the renovation of the town hall could have turned out to be a few numbers smaller, for some 45 million euros. In the future, politics and administration must see the whole picture when it comes to distributing taxpayers' money. People in our city should not feel any longer that "there is money for everything, but it's about the common good, there are neither resources nor funds available." To a family and citizen-friendly Bocholt also includes an event hall. To do this, the administration must now become active and tackle this as the top priority. A "no" would be a wrong and devastating signal here. After all, Bocholt is a city and not a village. Also, the provision of an event hall is a contribution to business development and so practically a must. In the main committee meeting, the Social Lisle also wants to know whether alternative city theater could be expanded. Or: what other possibilities exist to set up an event hall? "
