The Portuguese from Belfort in the municipal council to defend their interests

Flags on the back, signs under the arm, the Portuguese Federation of Cultural Sports in Balfour went to the Balfour Municipal Council, on Thursday evening, with a view to hearing it. They were about twenty years old to settle down on the public side. The mayor comes to receive them. “We are here in peace,” explains a member. You have to wait until the end of the board to express yourself. Mayor Damien Miselt replies. This is what the syndicate did, waiting two and a half hours for the municipal council to finish reading their complaints.

If they decide to go to the municipal council, it is because the room they have occupied for 28 years in the heart of the Jean-Jaurès district, at the corner of Rue de la Croix de Teilol and Rue Lavoir, they will be taken away by the city on December 31st. This decision was made at the end of August “in consultation with the president of the association”, The mayor calls during the municipal council. In question: Very high tensions with neighbours, who no longer support the noise caused by association meetings and who complain regularly, he explains. The city council promised in return for this withdrawal to help find buildings, or to vote for a subsidy for their future rent.

The problem is that the association finds the deadline too short to find something else. “This decision seriously threatens the very existence of our association, which is doing well nonetheless.” He pleaded to Paula Vicente, Vice President of the Assembly, before the elected officials present. The association is asking for six more months to find something else, especially since they have explained that they have a large amount of equipment in this room, which they cannot store elsewhere. We’re not going to put your stuff on the sidewalk on January 1st, that’s not the idea. He tries to reassure Damien Meslow, the mayor of Balfour. Complete: I hoped until the end that tensions with the neighborhood would subside. I made efforts, but the pressure just got too much. »
