The transparent of the citizens’ initiative (BI) "protects the reuther hange" hung on the back wall of the town hall for less than ten minutes. "Brute force" it said in red letters – an allusion to the castle meeting in burk. There, mayor franz stumpf (CSU/WUO) had said that the construction area on the lookout in reuth must be enforced with brute force if necessary.
Shortly after 4 p.M., an enraged mayor franz streit (CSU) made sure that the transparent was suspended. The poster violated the "principle of neutrality" prevailing in the town hall. When mayor franz stumpf arrived a short time later, he personally brought the rolled-up transparencies to the door of the meeting hall.
40 minutes later – the debate about the traffic report on the reuther hut was in full swing – BI spokesman ingolf franke again drew the ire of the mayor of oberburg. He had noticed that franke was recording the verbal contributions of the city council members with a dictating machine. Stumpf railed against the "lazy tricks" frankes and asked him to deliver the dictation board to him for the duration of the meeting. After the BI spokesman had complied with this request without a murmur, the city council continued the debate that the planning committee had begun in mid-october. The greens demanded that the "ecologically sensitive areas should not be sacrificed for development. Instead, according to FGL faction spokeswoman annette prechtel, consideration should be given to a protected area. Reinhold otzelberger (SPD) emphasized that the city could not commission an expert opinion and then "push it away".
