With the two honorees appointed on thursday at the pre-christmas honorary session, the community has again reached the maximum number of five living honorary burghers prescribed by the statutes. The other three honorary citizens are: fritz werner finzel, arno stammberger and gunther kob. With whimsical words the latter took the two "in the circle of the ehrenburger-fraktion" at.
Thanking people who are particularly committed to the well-being of the community and its citizens is a special honor for him, said mayor rolf rosenbauer during the laudation. The two deserving citizens of mitburg are by no means "inflationary honors" and certainly not everyday or annual honors. The ehrenburgerwurde is the highest award that the municipality can bestow, he emphasized.
Helmut gelhaar focused on sound budget management during his three decades of honorary service on the town council. The reason for this will have been his job as district chamberlain. A contribution from helmut gelhaar has always carried weight. His commitment in various functions was versatile and far-sighted. Rosenbauer: "the name helmut gelhaar still stands today in the community as an example of friendliness, competence and commitment in politics and society."
