Tourism dispute in coburg continues

Michael amthor, head of coburg’s tourism operation, and city manager jorg hormann leave at the end of the year. Amthor’s five-year contract ends; hormann moves to mainz at his own request. Both were critical of some aspects of their work, but above all of a proposal that was presented to the city council in february.
Under the heading "reorganization of the city of coburg’s tourism activities", it states: "1. The tourism enterprise coburg will be established at the earliest possible date, but at the latest by 31 december 2009. December 2017 dissolved. 2. The tourism tasks of city, day and weekend tourism are assigned to city marketing. 3. The remaining tasks will in future be carried out by the "coburg tourist region" association.Rennsteig’ perceived." The motion came from friedrich herdan (CSU) and gerhard amend (CSB). "From the valley of the clueless, amthor had said on tuesday in the tourism senate, where the city council representatives present also distanced themselves from the proposal. Coburg will continue to need its own tourism business, amthor emphasized. Hormann had also called the dissolution of the city’s own tourism operation "nonsense" but considered it sensible to no longer assign city management to tourism, but rather to the economic demand.
They will "intensively strive to increase the efficiency of the coburg tourism business", the two city council members herdan and amend now declare that. Hormann and amthor had "untruthfully denied them the expertise" and claims that the application is aimed at "saving coburg tourist".
"Mr. Amthor and mr. Hormann have still not understood when they claim that there are plans to completely withdraw the tourism business from coburg and transfer it to the association", it says in the declaration of the two city council members of thursday.
"This does not correspond to reality when reading our proposal, which we strongly recommend. It is true that the tourism and city marketing/city management company as a form of enterprise was closed as of 31 december 2009. December to be dissolved. The tourism tasks of city, day and weekend tourism are to be continued much more efficiently than before and thus more successfully, and in a cost-optimized manner under the umbrella of city marketing. All other tourist tasks, which were previously performed by the city of coburg, will be taken over by the association according to its statutes."
This orientation was approved both in a workshop attended by representatives of all factions and by the faction chairmen in a meeting with the external consultant, the two city councilors write. Second mayor birgit weber (CSU), whose department is responsible for the company, was also in favor, it says. "With this in mind, we wish both gentlemen in their new positions more efficient performance of the responsibilities they have assumed and more success than in coburg."
