What is Zurich the ZKB-million could spend

The Zurich-based inside and the people of Zurich, it goes like spoiled children at Christmas. The new toy is not the desired? Quickly the next gift to unwrap before the celebration mood passes. So it is now the Zürcher Kantonalbank , after your project has been triggered for a cable-car over the lake of Zurich mixed reactions. On the occasion of its 150. Birthday announced by the Bank yesterday, a gift of 150 million francs will pay off the house in the year 2020 as a "special dividend" to the Canton and Zurich.

unlike a regular dividend, which amounts this year to 358 million francs, to be used in the gift of Money, in order to implement "special projects", - said President of the Bank Council, Jörg Müller-Ganz. He thinks about projects, "found in the ordinary Budget has no place," and for the population of an "extraordinary Use". 100 million, the Canton receives 50 million will go to the municipalities and are to be distributed according to the proportion of the population.

"Good question!"

The money for the Canton would have to stimulate the imagination. For example, the city-country could-in trenches, on the recently the plans for the Zurich barracks area failed because "only" 30 million. Or you can buy for 100 million, the Oceanarium, as it plans to Basel.

there are Basically two approaches to how the money could be used. Either in accordance with the watering cans-principle: It is all for the benefit of only if it is evenly distributed. This would be per head for a Hunderternötli. Or with in-kind gifts.

What would be a "special" idea? Much easier to answer this question, it falls to tell the group President of the Canton Council, what to do under any circumstances. "The money is not to be incorporated in the State!", Martin Pretty (SVP) says. "It doesn't belong in the General Fund," says Erich Vontobel (EDU). "An idea I had not sure," holt Esther Guyer (Green), "is to cut taxes." Then pauses, with whom you speak and follow up at the phone.

"I'm not so spontaneous, that I could formulate the degree of something," admits Marcel lenggen Hager (BDP). "A good question," says Josef Wiederkehr (CVP). Markus Schaaf (EVP) to accept the offer, grateful to be back later. Esther Guyer. Perhaps an incident.

Agreed, and that is all that the money of the community. If projects, long-term, useful, creative. Free occasions, perhaps, Hiking trails, and a lakeside restaurant.

Benno Scherrer (GLP) in front of float, "pioneering projects in the field of energy". An ideas competition could be launched. Title: Innovation, Sustainability, And The Future. "We have now celebrated with the ZKB 150 years in the past. Now, we should celebrate 150 years of the future." As Markus Schaaf calls back, he says: "Usually the first idea is the best." The money he wants to give those people "a lot of bars, and too little attention to" get the support free of charge to their families. You will receive four weeks of discharge to holiday – as a postulate of the EPP, which was quashed once was. And Esther Guyer has an idea: a ZKB-tössauen Park in Winterthur "for eternity and not just for five years".

a Velospur?

Of the 50 million Swiss francs for the municipalities would flow due to the share of population of almost 14 million Swiss francs in the city of Zurich. That is, given a budget of almost 9 billion no amount of the skin from the stool. He doesn't even have enough to buy a League title in football. Markus Kunz, group President of the Greens in the municipal Council, proposes to distribute the money to the poorest Zurich communities, the reputation of the city Supplement.

Marco Denoth (SP) is recommended to implement a costly cycle path: the broadening of the langstrasse underpass or a Velospur the negrelli bridge over the track field, as it was recently deleted for cost reasons. Party colleague Davy Graf would Wollishofen ZKB cable car up to the stations and deep wells, renew, in order to use the public TRANSPORT. And the green-liberal Isabel Garcia thinks of team buses for the sport that lives today of volunteer deployments.
