Magdeburg (dpa/sa) - From the point of view of the future district council president, employees in municipal facilities should be prepared for cooler rooms. In certain areas, the room temperature may have to be turned down in view of the energy crisis, said the district administrator of the Burgenland district, Götz Ulrich (CDU), the "Mitteldeutsche Zeitung" (Tuesday edition). If necessary, hot water must also be dispensed with in order to save gas.
In view of the Ukraine war, Ulrich also believes that the date for the coal phase-out is still open. First it said 2035, then there was talk of 2030 for Saxony-Anhalt, now the Ukraine war is coming. "I now expect that we will not push ahead with any reductions. Instead, in Saxony-Anhalt, we will perhaps cut them down for a year or two longer."
Ulrich will take office as district council president on July 12. He succeeds Michael Ziche, who is retiring as District Administrator of the Altmark district of Salzwedel.
