Four times in the city of Zurich

in addition to the decision in the Council of States election campaign between Marionna Schlatter (Green) and Ruedi Noser (FDP) in the city of Zurich today, there are four other items of business to vote .

"1% Initiative"

With a Yes-share of 69.7 percent say the Voters Yes to the counter-proposal of the municipal Council to the "1-%-Initiative". All city districts were for it. The vote goes back to a popular initiative of the "Foundation for Effective altruism". They demanded that the city of Zurich will donate every year a percentage of their budget to the development of organizations. In 2019, the 87 million Swiss francs would have been. This went on the town and the local Council too far, they rejected the Initiative. The Parliament drew up a counter-proposal: The contribution of the city is donating, should be set to a maximum of 1, and at least 0.3 of a tax percentage. In relation to the current tax revenues, the amount would be between 5 and 18 million Swiss francs.

Of the parties represented in the municipal Council decided only the SVP and the FDP, the no-Parole. The SVP doesn't see it as a task of the city to provide international development assistance. This is a task of the Federal government. The FDP fears, however, a "bloating the bureaucracy", because the projects are ecologically, transparent, and scientifically tested.

school house Allmend

A large part of the new Wollishofer district green city already. Now, a vote was taken on the school house of the Commons in the new quarters. For the primary school with nine classes, three of the curative educational school and two kindergartens as well as an easy-to-gym and several additional rooms, the city applied for 57 million francs, 48 million of it for construction. The Voters said with 89.1 percent very clearly Yes. Here, too, all the districts of the city were in favour.

All the parties will say to this template, Yes. To talk in advance, however, that the planning of the school-house was made too late in the eye.

rebuild the social centre known ETH engineers in Switzerland road

The social center for the circles 6 and 10 is currently at the known ETH engineers in Switzerland road. There, the city is to rent and paid an annual rent of more than 730'000 Swiss francs. The space is in the view of the city very closely and reserves there are no more. Therefore, to pull the social center of the roses ibach street, where the city has five years ago by the cantonal Bank of a property for 34.7 million Swiss francs bought. For the reconstruction of the house, the city Council requested a property loan of € 59.8 million Swiss francs. Just under half of which is reserved capacity for the Transmission from the financial to the Administrative. For the service deployment and reconstruction costs, the city expects nearly CHF 27 million, CHF 4 million are earmarked as a Reserve.

This is very had to get much more than previously envisaged to be doubled - especially since the configuration of credit had to be from 1.75 to 3.6 million Swiss francs. The SVP criticised the "irresponsible explosion of Costs" and rejected the submission together with the FDP. The AL had decided to vote share. All other parties are in favour of it.

agreement relating to the Forensic Institute in Zurich

ten years Ago, the city and the Canton police, their forensic departments to the forensic Institute Zurich (FOR). Already at that time a legal form was provided for the FOR. Now the Institute is to be converted into an independent public-law institution. It would then have a private fortune and could hire personnel. This legal form also have other departments such as the asylum-organisation Zürich (AOZ).

in the Future, would send the corps of the city and the Canton police as it is today your staff to FOR. The civil employees, such as, for example, scientists are also from the Canton and the city hired. In the future, you would do that FOR the directly - under the personal law of the Canton. The SVP is too complicated, you want to transfer the whole of the Canton police. She will be supported by the EPP.
