Neubrandenburg (dpa/mv) – The consequences of the sharp rise in energy and fuel prices will also concern the district council of the Mecklenburg Lake District next Monday. As the district announced on Thursday, the impact on all areas of society in the sparsely populated region should be discussed. Representatives of the Chamber of Crafts and Industry and Commerce as well as the employment agency have been invited. With an area of around 5500 square kilometers, the lake district is more than twice the size of Saarland and by far the largest district in Germany .
The leadership of the district should show the consequences for the administration, residents and all holdings in the district, such as the bus company MVVG or the Demmin hospital. It was already known in advance that the increased fuel prices would result in additional costs of 1.2 million euros for Mecklenburgisch Vorpommersche Verkehrs-Gesellschaft mbH. The country had already approved 1.1 million euros in aid in anticipation of the accounts from the Corona aid fund and the 9-euro ticket, which had also caused losses for the bus company.
Parallel to the district assembly in the Neubrandenburg House of Culture and Education (HKB), hundreds of people want to demonstrate against the consequences of energy policy on Monday at the HKB market. There are six such great circles in MV.
