Born in 2017 from the merger – at a compelled march – of three intermunicipalities, i.e. 28 municipalities and 100,000 inhabitants, the agglo Provence verte intends to play a serious position within the improvement of the territory. Managing necessary expertise – early childhood, financial improvement, tradition, water, transport, waste, agriculture… – the agglo Provence verte additionally goals to construct a typical future, and a typical id, from Méounes to Cotignac, and from Pourrières in Entrecasteaux. At the beginning of the yr, the purpose with the one who has chaired the construction for a bit over three years, Didier Brémond.
How is the agglo Provence verte doing at first of 2022?
The intermunicipal construction has simply celebrated its fifth anniversary, and is doing nicely. It displays a typical will of the mayors to work collectively, no matter occurs.
Nevertheless, the agglomeration just isn’t all the time nicely recognized by most of the people…
It’s nonetheless current, nevertheless it performs a serious position within the territory, in its improvement, its tasks, and even within the day by day lifetime of the inhabitants: after they drop off their little one on the crèche, it’s the agglomeration. When their kids take faculty buses, it is the agglomeration. After they open their faucets, it is nonetheless agglomeration, and many others. And the agglomeration additionally carries main structuring gear tasks for the territory.
For a number of years now, an necessary venture has been talked about for the fifth tranche of Nicopolis, the place are we at?
So long as it isn’t fully carried out, saying an excessive amount of can be untimely and will hurt the venture… However we aren’t very removed from succeeding, we’re nonetheless speaking a couple of complete of 800 jobs… Furthermore, any the Nicopolis space confirms its attractiveness, and we will think about that the land there may be virtually already closed, we should activate ourselves to change the PLU of the municipality so as to have the ability to open a sixth tranche.
What about indoor swimming pool tasks, in Garéoult and Saint-Maximin?
For Garéoult, feasibility research have been voted, they’ll happen in 2022. The municipality is contemplating an set up close to the sports activities complicated… In Saint-Maximin, the agglo is awaiting the municipality, which wished to change the institution deliberate by the earlier municipality. However the budgets are nicely maintained.
Is the development of a conference heart in Brignoles nonetheless related?
Sure in fact, the research are nicely underway, and supply for the event of your entire district of Paris, with specifically the Palais des Congrès but in addition the Hôtel d’agglo, a department of the Division… The target is that this be carried out throughout this mandate.
The mayor of Saint-Maximin requests a overview of the compensation allocations allotted by the agglo to the municipalities…
We hear it, and we’re certainly going to transform our monetary pact, and subsequently the compensation allocations paid to the municipalities. I actually do not need to gasoline this debate, however I’ve to reply. Who says “compensation” says “in relation to what the municipality brings to the agglo”. The scale of the communes alone just isn’t an accounting argument, it’s the receipts originating within the communes and transmitted to the intercommunality that are taken into consideration. And from this standpoint, if there’s a rebalancing, in accordance with the foundations in drive, it won’t essentially be in step with the expectations of the mayor of Saint-Maximin…
In 2021, the sharp rise in TEOM was additionally badly skilled in Saint-Maximin and within the former municipalities of Sainte-Baume-Mont-Aurélien…
It is by no means good within the second, in fact, however once more, it is about justice and equity. A taxpayer from Brignoles, Garéoult or Saint-Maximin should pay on the identical degree to profit from the identical companies, it’s apparent, and it’s the regulation… We additionally have to stability our waste price range, however to this point, the bills are greater than revenue and now we have to compensate with an enormous ticket from the primary price range of the agglo, that is now not acceptable.
Exactly, how are the funds of the agglo?
They’re good, now we have little debt. Funds are wholesome however we’re all the time cautious as a result of we all know that we will “endure” at any time incompressible bills linked to our obligatory expertise, such because the financing of Sdis, transport, waste, water and electrical energy. sanitation…
