Administrative offices of the district closed between the years
The administrative offices of the Waldeck-Frankenberg district in Korbach, Frankenberg and Dorfitter will be closed from December 27 to 30 inclusive this year. The background this year is in particular the ongoing energy crisis. The central control center of the district is exempt from the regulation.
Control centers and waste disposal facilities remain open
This decision means that regular operations at the district administration will then be suspended for a total of nine consecutive days - including public holidays and weekends. Of course, the central control center in the Korbach district administration building is exempt from the closure: it is staffed around the clock, 365 days a year. The waste disposal facilities in Bad Wildungen, Flechtdort and Geismar will also be open during the regular opening hours, which can be found online for the individual locations.
Special arrangements for registration offices
In coordination with the relevant municipalities, special opening hours have also been agreed for the week between the years for the registration offices in Waldeck-Frankenberg. From December 24 to 26 and from December 31 to January 1, all offices will be closed. On December 27, the registration offices in Bad Arolsen, Bad Wildungen and Frankenberg will be open, on December 28 in Bad Arolsen and Bad Wildungen and on December 29 and 30 in Bad Arolsen, Bad Wildungen and Battenberg. Customer appointments will only take place at all open offices if an appointment has been made in advance. This can be done online or by calling 06451-743 620 for Frankenberg, 05691 -801 260 for Bad Arolsen, 05621-961 505 for Bad Wildungen and 06452-934 431 for Battenberg.
"This year, we decided to close our houses between the years for energy-saving reasons," says District Administrator Jürgen van der Horst, explaining the decision. "The fact that between the years is a popular vacation season anyway also reinforced our decision to take this step." The closure of the administrative offices means that the premises will have virtually no need to be heated, lit or supplied with electricity for nine subsequent days. "We therefore ask citizens to understand this measure to save energy."
Visitors to the district administration are asked to deal with urgent matters that need to be brought forward in person, if possible by the week before Christmas. In this context, the district also points out once again that numerous applications to the district administration in various subject areas can already be submitted online.
