Thuringia: Expert sees deficits in the financial resources of municipalities

Erfurt (dpa/th) - From the point of view of a legal scholar, the state of Thuringia does not currently adequately regulate the financial resources of the municipalities. Municipalities do not only have to be adequately financed by the state for compulsory tasks, said the scientist Winfried Kluth on Wednesday in Erfurt at the presentation of an expert report he had written. They would also have to get enough money from the state to carry out tasks in the voluntary sector. The latter is not sufficiently solved in the so-called connectivity regulations, according to which task and financial responsibility belong together.

Municipalities are legally obliged to provide the necessary money, for example, to support people on social security. How much money they give to sports or youth clubs, for example, is up to them. Therefore, the latter expenses are referred to as voluntary benefits. Such expenses are extremely important for local life.

Kluth is a professor of public law at the Martin Luther University in Halle. The report was commissioned by the Greens parliamentary group.
