Municipality takes measures for second lockdown:


Among other things, the counters of the municipal administration (Gemeindeverwaltung), including the school, will remain closed.

At an extraordinary meeting on 14 January, the municipal council (Gemeinderat) of Risch discussed the stricter measures imposed by the federal government to contain the Corona virus. The municipal council has thereby decided on the following measures for the Risch municipality, as stated in a communication:

1.    Mass invoicing (including fire brigade service exemption charge, dog licence charge) will be postponed until later. Supplier invoices (Kreditorenrechnungen) will be settled as soon as possible.

2.    The library (for the loan and return of books) and the youth meeting for children up to 16 years of age remain open.

3.    The sale of SBB day tickets will cease from 18 January 2021.

4.    Meetings and discussions will be held by telephone or video conference whenever possible.

5.    From Monday, 18 January, the counters of the municipal administration, including the school, will be closed. For matters that cannot be settled by telephone, by correspondence or by videoconference, appointments can be arranged in advance with the municipal administration. The municipal administration remains available by telephone during the usual office hours (Monday to Friday, 8.00 a.m. to 11.45 a.m. and 1.30 p.m. to 5-00 p.m.).

6.    The employees of the municipal administration who carry out office work will basically work in home office. This does not apply to work which must be carried out on the spot in order to maintain the services of the local authority.

These measures are initially limited until the end of February 2021.

The public applications for planning permission (Planauflage) will remain displayed in the foyer of the Dorfmatt Centre from Monday to Friday, from 8 a.m. to 11.45 a.m. and from 1.30 p.m. to 5 p.m. The opening hours of the Ökihof (waste disposal service) remain unchanged (Mondays, 9 a.m. to 11.30 a.m., Wednesdays and Fridays, 9 a.m. to 11.30 a.m. and 1.15 p.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays, 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.). A separate protection concept has been developed for the use of the Ökihof, and it is requested that everyone should comply with this.
