Heavy rain prevention project group “hands on itself”!

“Small measures with a big effect or just do it”, true to this motto, the project group for prevention of heavy rain organized a day of action. There is a rainwater retention basin above the Im Kirchberg road in the vineyards. This has been pretty much forgotten in recent years and has grown over with trees, bushes and hedges. In addition, it has largely lost its important function of holding back heavy precipitation. This point was recognized as a necessary measure from the inventory to improve the prevention of heavy rain and was included in the implementation concept. What exactly was to be done now? The throttling of the retention basin and thus the basic retention capacity of the basin had to be checked and restored. Extensive cleaning measures were initially necessary for this. Undergrowth was removed, access to the basin was made, the inlet cleared of vegetation and debris and fitted with a simple but effective log restrictor/overflow system. “Costs are close to zero, the amount of work is manageable but an “absolute plus” in terms of safety for the entire village population” is the conclusion. An example that could and should set a precedent…
By the way: In addition to the members of the project group, the 7-year-old (!) son of a member (Jakob Kuhnen) also helped diligently. Every help counts – all fellow citizens, whether young or old, can make a contribution to prevent flooding and heavy rain.

News – Parking concept and fiber optic expansion

parking concept
As part of the preparatory work for the new parking zone regulation in the town centre, the public order office made markings on the road in Paulsstrasse and Hochstrasse. These caused irritation among some residents, as they assumed that parking bays would definitely be marked at these points. However, these were only the positions that would have been legally possible.
During an inspection by the responsible council committee, however, a majority decided against such a regulation. No bays will be drawn in the roadway area. Measures to regulate speed are still being discussed.
When the regulation comes into force (July 1st), parking will only be possible in the designated zones (previously municipal parking spaces).
The square below the gym will also be redesigned and the parking spaces will be laid out differently.

fiber optic expansion
The fiber optic rollout in the community is entering its final stages.
In addition to the closure of the roadway areas that are still open, the outstanding house connections will also be laid in the next few weeks. However, the executing company only guaranteed a timely connection for households that had signed a contract as part of demand bundling (until March 31, 2021).
The municipal administration is still trying to ensure that all other contractors are also involved in the execution of this work step.
The construction company responsible for the asphalt work that was still to be done gave the following data. However, compliance is always dependent on the weather.
The residents will be informed by the construction company about the period of work by means of a slip, and the areas will be cordoned off accordingly. It is urgently advised to comply with these and not to drive on the underground before the closure is lifted.

flood and heavy rain prevention

Dear citizens,

not least due to the storm disaster last summer with devastating damage to the Ahr, in the Eifel and other regions, the ever-threatening danger due to heavy rain events has become even more present. We ourselves, as “mourned” residents of the Moselle, have often had to go through such bad experiences in the past. Due to our special topographical location, the risk of heavy rain and flooding threatens us in Lieser more or less “from all sides”.

It is all the more important to take precautions. Making provisions also means making provisions for oneself! The present concept from the Reishner engineering office offers us a good basis for this and lots of valuable information and suggestions that we can implement independently.

A project group has been set up to deal with the concept and the development and implementation of possible higher-level protective measures. Fortunately, interested citizens of the local community have reported and declared their willingness to work on this challenging project, which is designed for a longer period of time.

The project group includes: Markus Berg, Stefan Koch, Jens Kuhnen, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Joachim Sartor, Jochen Kiesgen (local mayor), Markus Knop (first deputy).

In the meantime, special pages on this topic have been set up on the homepage of the local municipality of Lieser under the heading HeimatOrt, with the heading Heavy rain prevention. The comprehensive concept with an explanatory report, photo documentation, maps, etc. are stored there. Here is the link to the pages: https://www.lieser-mosel.de/starkregen-und-hochwasserpension/

A priority list drawn up by the project group with profiles of specific measures is also available on this website. These will be added successively. The project group will report continuously on this topic on the homepage and also in the newsletter.

Finally, our appeal once again: Heavy rain precautions concern us all! We can all make a contribution to protecting our belongings, life and health. Such a contribution begins with the permanent cleanliness of the vineyard and farm roads, roads, gullies, drains, etc. – Therefore: “Let’s tackle it together!”

Questions and suggestions on the subject can be sent to the project group via the e-mail address of the municipality (gemeindeverwaltung@lieser-mosel.de).

Thanks very much!

Your municipal administration and project group heavy rain

New Year greeting

Dear fellow citizens of Lieser,

the year 2021 was again a moving one, with many ups and downs. The corona pandemic in particular had a major impact on public life at the beginning of the year.
While the first relief in this regard was possible in summer, nature on the Ahr showed its dark side. The willingness to help our region also gives the residents hope that things will look up again in 2022.
In the autumn, Lieser had the opportunity to show himself from his best side again as part of his “Lieser takes off” festival. Numerous wineries and businesses catered for the guests in the usual quality and provided an interesting supporting program.
After that, the corona pandemic came to the fore again and posed great challenges for many fellow citizens, especially at work, but also in their private lives, and often led us to the physical and psychological limits.
I would like to thank everyone who has contributed to ensuring that we as a society and also as a local community have steered our ship well through these stormy times. At the community level, I would like to thank all of our employees in the building yard and Ruheforst, Ms. Gilgenberg from the community office and our reliable cleaner Ms. Pfeiffer.
Special thanks also go to our pensioner group, which, as in previous years, took on a lot of voluntary work in the manual sector.
I would also like to thank the ladies and gentlemen of the municipal council, especially the two councilors Markus Knop and Katja Klassen, who were a great help and always supported me.
Let’s look optimistically into the new year 2022 together. We have big plans and want to continue the projects that have already started, and in some cases also to complete them. A look at the preliminary draft budget shows that we want to invest again. The existing good infrastructure with the various properties must be kept in good condition in order to avoid a future investment backlog.

Finally, I wish you and your families a lot of optimism for a happy new year 2022
Jochen Kiesgen

Deutsche Glasfaser manufactures main distributors in Lieser

July 19, 2021, Lieser. On July 16, 2021 at 8 a.m. in Weidenbornstrasse, Deutsche Glasfaser set up the main distributor for the future fiber-optic network in Lieser. All fiber optic connections come together in the so-called “POP” (Point of Presence). It forwards incoming and outgoing data traffic and connects the local network with the rest of the world – an Internet connection at the speed of light.

The 2nd councilor of the community Katja Klassen, Marco Rößler and Klaus Loch (members of the community council) were present to set up the POP. The municipality decided to expand with Deutsche Glasfaser because Deutsche Glasfaser enables a nationwide, private-sector expansion with fiber to every residential unit.

During the fiber optic expansion work, there may be obstacles in road traffic due to the construction site, which unfortunately cannot be prevented. The citizens of Lieser are asked to understand this.

Tender flea and antique market

The local community of Lieser grants permission to hold a flea and antique market. A demand-oriented area on the banks of the Moselle is made available for this purpose. The term of the approval extends to the current calendar year with the option of an extension at the same conditions and prices for a further year (2022).

The days of the event are limited to Friday, Saturday and / or Sunday. Up to three events per year between 01.03. and 31.10. occur. The exact dates are to be agreed with the municipality of Lieser. The construction on the site may take place from 6:00 a.m. on market day, the dismantling must be done by 7:30 p.m.

The licensee undertakes to ensure a balanced supply of permitted goods and to avoid an oversupply of individual goods. The offering of new goods is not permitted.

We ask that you send your application by April 8th, 2021 at the latest. Include an implementation concept, your references and a bid for the rent.
