Month: may 2019 – bergkamen infoblog

For the BI Pro L821n – now! their spokesman Thomas Schauerte writes the following letter to the editor. The same applies here: letters to the editor do not have to express the opinion of the editors. We reserve the right to cut it.

“If you continue to look at the L 821n realistically, then it is and remains an alternative bypass for the heavily traffic-laden passages in Oberaden and Weddinghofen. It was also identified in the Bergkamen Council in 2017 as an alternative solution to the traffic problems of both local crossings, and everyone agreed on this. The political promises of the past 40 years were implemented on June 28, 2017 by the SPD, CDU and FDP. The state of North Rhine-Westphalia, as the construction and operating cost of this road, has set the start of construction for late summer 2019 via Straßen.NRW.

On May 22, 2019, the SPD parliamentary group in Bergkamen requested a resolution to reject the L 821n in Bergkamen, the vote will be taken at the council meeting on June 6, 2019. Is the SPD being steered over the Bergkamen Greens in the background? The current daily press reports on talks between the two groups on this topic. There are allegedly no votes between the two groups. In this context, the
The regional chairwoman of the Bergkamen Greens, Rolf Humbach, reported about 3 weeks ago in the press about a "big surprise" by the SPD. What happens there? Because of the election results, the SPD is already on a joint course with the Greens?

The background to the proposed resolution is that one of the 6 demands of the council decision of June 28, 2017 has not yet been clearly confirmed by the NRW Ministry of Transport, nor by Straßen.NRW, which reports to this ministry. It is a requirement that the L 664 in Weddinghofen and Mitte, which runs between B 233 and L 654 (old B 61 Lünener Str.), Be downgraded to Kreisstraße after completion of the L 821n. This decision can only be made by the NRW Ministry of Transport in consultation with Straßen.NRW. So far, this commitment has not been made in writing and is a formal matter when considered objectively. Especially since the downgrading of the L 821 (Jahnstrasse), which is also required, results from the fact that there are not two country roads with identical names and connections being run in parallel. This would make the 2nd requirement, based on itself, to be regarded as actually meaningless.

The third requirement to start construction only when the land purchase is 100% secured is superfluous for road construction projects that are based on a planning approval decision, since the necessary land is generally available.

The fourth demand states that subsidies should be made available for the reconstruction of the roads. However, if these are no longer state roads after the downgrading to district road, the NRW state government is no longer directly responsible for the funding of these roads. Therefore, this demand for financial support is also not understandable.

The fifth request for consent to impose weight restrictions (7.5 t) on both local passages, after the redirection to the district road, is then no longer the decision of the NRW Ministry of Transport, but of the district of Unna. So this request is also directed to the wrong recipients and is therefore pointless.

The 6th request for an update of the agricultural accompanying plan (LPD) is basically only a friendly note, because the LPD is legally binding in connection with an approved plan approval decision.

The question arises, who came up with these 6 demands in mid-2017?

And here again the realistic view: For Oberaden, the L 821n results in a 100% solution, that is clearly clear. Why do you want to reject everything now? For Weddinghofen there is still no commitment to redeploy to a district road, but here too the question "Who was there first, the hen or the egg?" Let’s let the chick hatch out of the egg and please don’t smash the L 821n with the statement "Then not!".

Realistically speaking, the retrospect and outlook on the traffic in Bergkamen is as follows: Official traffic figures are increasing inexorably, no one doubts it, unless the oil on earth would have disappeared tomorrow. Even then, we would have enough alternative fuels to keep the traffic going. Because one thing is certain: as long as stones, steel and parcels cannot be sent by email, truck traffic will accompany us. Some more, some less and some quite violent, this also includes the town crossings from Oberaden and Weddinghofen.

The surrounding motorways A1, A2, A 44 have been and are being expanded into 6 lanes.
The expansion of the section of the A1 from Kamener Kreuz to Hamm / Werne to Hiltrup is expected to begin in 2023. These 31 km will mean a considerable additional alternative traffic for Bergkamen for a construction period of approx. 8 to 10 years. And even after completion of the A1, Bergkamen remains the alternative route for the traffic jam avoidance, in the not uncommon case of an A1 traffic jam event. Unfortunately, this will also happen, "Greta" and "green politics" will not be able to change that. Our neighboring town of Werne has recently prepared itself excellently with the construction of its new bypass, followed by a ring exchange by redesignating the street category with restricted passage. After the completion of the new streets, there was also the green light from Düsseldorf and also from Straßen.NRW from Bochum.

For Bergkamen it will also work the same way with the L 821n! ”

A car driver was slightly injured in a traffic accident on Friday night around 0.45 a.m. on the A 2 near Kamen.

According to the information, the 18-year-old from Castrop-Rauxel was driving his car in the middle lane towards Oberhausen. In front of the Kamener Kreuz, a deer suddenly ran from the right edge of the road onto the road. The 18-year-old moved to the left to avoid a collision with the animal. The car hit the concrete bulkhead on the left and finally landed on the roof.

The driver suffered minor injuries in the accident. An ambulance took him to a hospital for further treatment. During the accident recording and salvage work, the directional road affected had to be temporarily blocked. Then the right lane could be released again. The accident site was cleared around 2 a.m..

The police estimate the damage to property to be around 4,000 euros.

State Secretary Wittke (2nd from left) said District Administrator Makiolla (3rd from left), WFG Managing Director Dr. Then give financial aid to Dannebom (2nd from right) and the mayors of the affected municipalities to cushion the coal phase-out. Photo: Constanze Rauert – Kreis Unna

The coal phase-out decided by the federal government also affects the district of Unna. After all, there are four hard coal power plants in Bergkamen, Lünen and Werne, two of which are still on the grid. The energy transition therefore costs jobs and economic power.

Reason enough for the district, the affected municipalities and the business development district of Unna (WFG) to push for help from the federal government. In particular, money is needed to dismantle the land as a prerequisite for other uses and thus for new economic perspectives. The grant has now been promised.

State Secretary Wittke: federal government must ensure compensation
After a meeting with district administrator Michael Makiolla, the mayors Roland Schäfer (Bergkamen), Jürgen Kleine-Fraunhofer (Lünen) as well as Lothar Christ (Werne) and WFG managing director Dr. Michael Dannebom took a position on Oliver Wittke, State Secretary at the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy. "Where added value is lost through decisions by the federal government, the federal government must also for provide compensation. ”The State Secretary presses on the pace. "We don’t want to put fallow land for years, but quickly bring new life to the areas."

100 million euros flow into the circle
This will can be quantified. The nine hard coal sites in NRW are to receive one billion euros, making around 100 million euros for the three district municipalities. Before the summer break there will be a draft bill for the distribution of the more than 40 billion euros for lignite and hard coal in North Rhine-Westphalia (15 billion euros committed), Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt and Brandenburg. The distribution is controlled by the federal states. B. about the Ruhr Conference, for which various projects from the district of Unna have already been named.

District Administrator Makiolla: We accept the challenge
"50 hectares and 50 to 60 million euros in investment volume per power plant location", is Dr. Faust’s formula. Michael Dannebom. The business promoter and the WFG supervisory board chairman Michael Makiolla accept the challenge. Even more: the two are certain that the bottom line is that modern commercial and industrial locations with qualified jobs will be created. "We have already achieved a structural change. So we know how to do it, ”District Administrator Makiolla is confident.

The SPD local association Weddinghofen-Heil will again offer a citizen consultation hour in front of the Barbara pharmacy in Weddinghofen tomorrow, Saturday, June 1st, with the format of the "Response Bar".

From 10:30 a.m. to around 11:30 a.m. the council member Simone Leuthold-Haverkamp and the local director Dirk Haverkamp are available for questions and suggestions.

The driver of a tractor-trailer was slightly injured in a traffic accident on Wednesday at 12.45 p.m. on the A1 near Kamen.

According to initial knowledge, the 24-year-old from Augustdorf was traveling with his semitrailer on the right lane towards Bremen. Shortly before the Kamen-Zentrum junction, traffic jammed so that it had to brake to a standstill. A 38-year-old from Poland driving behind recognized this and also braked his truck. The 43-year-old from Spain following him, however, overlooked the end of the traffic jam for reasons that have not yet been clarified and hit the rear of the vehicle in front with his tractor-trailer. Due to the impact, it was pushed against the 24-year-old’s tractor-trailer.

The young driver from Augustdorf suffered minor injuries in the accident. An ambulance took him to a hospital for further treatment. The other two drivers were unharmed.

During the accident recording and salvage work, the right and middle lanes and the Kamen-Zentrum junction had to be temporarily blocked in the direction of Bremen. The mission ended at 3:40 p.m..

The police estimate the property damage to be around 20,000 euros.

BI members "L821n No!" Presented the resident application, which is supported by more than 3,000 mountain camers, to Mayor Roland Schäfer on March 21.

Now it is also official: the administration proposes to the city council in its meeting on June 6th to reject the citizens’ application against the construction of the L821n. The district of Unna as a municipal supervisory authority and the Association of Towns and Municipalities in North Rhine-Westphalia also agreed with this legal concept.

The reasoning states: "On March 21, 2019, Mr. Rolf Humbach, one of the initiators of Mayor Roland Schäfer, submitted an application for a resident. The aim of this resident application is that the city council of Bergkamen advises and decides on the following matter: "Should the L82n be built?"

After an immediate review, it can be determined that the required signature quorum has been reached. With the question presented, however, the resident application is not within the competence of the Bergkamen City Council. Since the L 821n is a state road, in the present case it is not the city of Bergkamen that is legally responsible for building the road, but the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, which makes use of the state road construction company in accordance with Section 43 (2) StrWG NRW. (…)

The initiators were advised by the administration in November 2018 as part of the consultation on a possible application for residents.

The legal view of the city of Bergkamen has now also been confirmed by the municipal supervision of the district of Unna and the city and municipal association of North Rhine-Westphalia. ”

In September and October 2017, Bergkamener Dorothee H. (name changed) received a total of 1103 euros from the job center – money to which she was not entitled. The question in the district court in Kamen was now: Was that clear to you? The 40-year-old mother was charged with fraud.

In mid-August 2017, she started working for a temporary employment agency. The money from the job center came anyway in the following two months – without Dorothee H. reporting to the authorities. Her lawyer said his client was not deliberately cheating. Rather, she had believed that the money was an integration allowance that the job center was supposed to offer her. In the period before, different amounts had flowed to her, rent and electricity costs went directly from the job center to UKBS and GSW – in short: it was not necessarily clear on the account of the Bergkamenerin. And: the job center got the job for her from the temporary employment agency – she was allowed to assume that the job center was then informed about the actual start of work.

However: An official from the job center reported that at the end of August 2017 Dorothee H. received an invitation to an interview in early September. At the latest, it should have clicked: What else do they want from me when I have been working for a long time? Dorothee H.’s criminal record lists a suspended sentence for commercial fraud – imposed in the summer of 2017, a few weeks before the matter with the job center. The verdict now: four months in prison – without parole. The judge was convinced that Dorothee H. had "deliberately concealed" the start of work.

SPD parliamentary group leader Bernd Schäfer

Will Bergkamen now proclaim the climate emergency for itself? On April 11, the General and Finance Committee, with a large majority, rejected any citizens’ suggestions. Michael Stasch, the submitter of the application, now asked again with a comprehensive statement. On June 6, the Main and Finance Committee should revisit this topic.

The administration proposes, with the same reason, to reject the citizens’ suggestion again. The Bergkamen climate protection concept is much more comprehensive than the declaration of a climate emergency, as has already been done in a number of cities.

Now after the European elections, the SPD parliamentary group does not want to follow the administration’s recommendation again. She requested that the treatment of the citizens’ suggestion be removed from the agenda on June 6. "On Tuesday we will call for the item on the agenda to be withdrawn and will encourage a more specific examination of the term" climatic emergency for mountain climbs ". We expect the administration to prepare a detailed template for one of the upcoming meetings, which explains how the term “climate emergency” is defined. At the same time, we are assuming that the administration will present a concrete concept with measures that – in addition to the previous climate protection efforts – can directly contribute to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, ”declared fraction leader Bernd Schäfer and spokesman for the SPD in the Committee on the Environment, Building on Wednesday and traffic Uwe Reichelt.

The statement by the SPD parliamentary group also states: “It is important to us that the term“ climate emergency ”does not act as an empty phrase. Rather, we would like to have it filled with specific content for Bergkamen, which may well go beyond the content of the climate protection concept for the city of Bergkamen that was adopted in February 2019. The concept already contains 27 concrete measures in the fields of mobility, planning, building, renovation, renewable energies, economy and city administration, in-house operations and local politics. In four public workshops, numerous citizens and all the political groups represented in the City Council of Bergkamen participated in the preparation of the climate protection concept.

We do not see a contradiction to the rejection of a citizens’ suggestion from March 2019 to declare the climate emergency. The integrated climate protection concept for the city of Bergkamen, which was already adopted in February, is far more specific than the very general citizens’ suggestion to "support the proclamation of the climate emergency". In this context, too, we have already referred to the current and specifically available integrated climate protection concept for the city of Bergkamen.

Obviously, the measures taken to reduce greenhouse gas emissions worldwide have so far failed to show the necessary success.

It should therefore be checked promptly which specific measures in Bergkamen – beyond the previous climate protection efforts – can directly contribute to a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions. "

A mug of cappuccino can be an instrument of action. Bergkamener Magda L. (38, name changed) stood before the Kamen district court because of dangerous bodily harm. On the morning of October 11, 2018, she met a friend, Rosa F. (35), in the kiosk on the Bergkamen town market. To put it mildly, the two women don’t value each other very much. Suddenly anyway, Rosa F. had the contents of Magda L.’s cappuccino mug on her neck. Because this content was hot and Rosa F. had first-degree scalds, Magda L was now charged with "guilty of teaching a harmful substance".

Magda L. admitted the hot encounter. But: it was an accident. Rosa F. bumped her with her bag at the kiosk entrance. In doing so, she had just lost her mug from violence. "I also got something myself." The representative of the public prosecutor requested acquittal.

The judge, however, was convinced of Magda L.’s guilt – and intent. The sentence was 1500 euros fine. Most important point of the reasoning: Without Magda L.’s intent, the cappuccino could not have reached Rosa F.’s shoulder height – especially since the victim of the coffee attack is still around 12 centimeters taller than the spouse. She wants to contest the judgment. So it is quite possible that the judiciary will continue to deal with the two. L. about F .: "She’s constantly dragging me to court."
