In addition to the existing city council factions, another local political group has formed under the name "we for erlangen" formed. The founding board members are volker leiste, maximilian kunkel and christoph stollberg from erlangen.

"We want to get involved in local politics as a non-partisan association, because we do not see certain issues being adequately represented by the classic parties in the local election campaign, or because we are subject to the requirements of overriding party programs", according to leiste, who was elected as the first chairman at the foundation meeting.

Positive annual balance sheet of the brk water rescue service

Actually, 2012 was not a bad year for the bamberg water rescue service, if it hadn’t been for the tiresome issue of the costs for swimming training in the bambados. "We did not have to pay anything for our legally required training hours in the old indoor swimming pool. Now in the bambados we have to hand over around 4,000 euros a year to the municipal utility company", criticized marcus petermann, chairman of the bamberg local group.

Training takes place every wednesday – and the water rescue service has to pay 95 euros for it. This means that the water rescue service is classified in the same way as a swimming club. "But we are a rescue service, and we don’t swim for fun or for medals or trophies that end up in the clubhouse," he said, petermann railed at the members’ meeting. A recently concluded service agreement with the municipal utility company has eased the situation somewhat. According to this, the water rescue service commits itself to 150 hours a year of supervision of the pools. At the same time, around half of the annual fee is waived for them.
