The many millions of dollars to the new town hall was found in this year's budget deal in October. It happened, just three days after the ministry of the Interior had pledged 12 million. støttekroner to the dire state of the municipality in the form of a særtilskud.

The money says the dire state of the municipality i.e. no to, while at the same time politicians will spend € 5.7 million. dollars to tear it down.

Unfortunately, looking still into some big costs, if you have to have the whole town hall up to date in relation to the building regulations, there is today, and in proportion to the desire we have, that it must also be the citizens ' house. We can not in the framework, there is here, he says.

- I've got a new kitchen so late as in the year to € 2.4 million. crowns. You can understand if there are any, who think it is a little strange that such a new kitchen just to be torn down?
