The Waltenschwil voters have decided: Municipal clerk Frank Koch will work in the basement in the future. That pleases both him and the other employees of the municipal administration.

Because with the clear yes at the community, the sovereign agreed that the community center can be renovated and expanded.

For this they spoke on Wednesday a commitment credit of 2.475 million Swiss francs. With part of the money, the former fire station under the community center can be converted into offices.

This is urgently needed because the municipal office is bursting at the seams, Ammann Simon Zubler said at an information event in the run-up to the municipality.

The former fire station in Waltenschwil has been empty since 2019.  Soon the employees of the municipal office will work here.

The loan was approved by 99 of the 2,089 residents present with zero dissenting votes. Just like all the other four agenda items, for example the 2023 budget, as Frank Koch reports. With all applications there were only inquiries and small discussions.

“Under Miscellaneous, someone submitted the request that a report or a loan for the renovation of the football field be put on the agenda for the next municipality,” says Koch. This was approved with 93 yes to 33 no.
