Today’s Linz municipal council meeting will also be broadcast live again from 2 p.m. (at linz.at/gemeinderat-live).
As reported, in addition to six inquiries to members of the city senate, a current hour on the topic “Current situation of asylum seekers in Linz” is also on the agenda. This was requested by the SPÖ in order to return to cooperation between the state, cities and municipalities in the search for accommodation for refugees. This current hour is likely to become more explosive with the events on Halloween night and the content is probably less about accommodation than about deportation issues.
Advisory board for e-mobility required
Less explosive, but still important in terms of the future of (environmentally friendly) mobility in the city, is a proposal from Neos. Municipal councilor Georg Redlhammer calls for an advisory board for e-mobility, because “we as a city must do something as soon as possible if cars with petrol or diesel engines will no longer be registered from 2035”. Redlhammer is currently still identifying too many partial responsibilities. In order to have an overall understanding, you need a higher-level body where everything comes together.
