On thursday afternoon, mayor norbert tessmer immured current issues of the daily newspaper, coins and a certificate in a soldered copper sheet sleeve in the foundation stone of the citizens’ house at wolfgangsee in wustenahorn. " laying the foundation stone is always a nice event, as it stands for dynamism, progress and the future", said tessmer. The mayor recalled the almost 20 years of "tenacious" construction work history of the civic and district house. "A first note dates back to the year 1999." tessmer quoted the then managing director of wohnbau coburg, willibald fehn, according to whom the construction of the burgerhaus would take about four to five years. First concrete discussions about the project within the framework of the "social city" project followed only in 2009.
