The coalition in the city of Prague 11 does not formally exist, the coalition of agreements was terminated by the YES movement in July. In addition to other disputes, the deputy does not agree on the future of the Arel Ice Sports project, which can slide with two skates, hockey and even curling.
The city is involved in the project, for example, due to the possibility of children’s space for field sports and the submission of skates to the public under suitable conditions.
On January 30, 2020, the Prague 11 City Council decided to enter into a joint venture with AR Delta, sro and to purchase a 50 percent stake.
The city invested its 35 million crowns in the joint venture. A pilot is currently being completed on a site located on the city’s land, and the project continues despite the decision of the council from the 2nd party of the former coalition to join the opposition and declare a resolution ordering the council to withdraw from the project.
The chairman of the first council, the mayor of Prague 11, Martin Sedeke (ODS), left AR Delta and resigned. Jan left the first two rows and was nominated by the YES movement and Tereza Dolansk for TOP 09 / STAN.
In the company, only Petr Penosil, represented by the nominated Pirty, represents the city council, which is one of the company’s two shareholders, and has become the new chairman of the first board. The new members of the board want to elect a representative at the nearest council.
The mayor of the city Ji Dohnal (Pirti) does not want the result of the voting representative about the withdrawal of Prague 11 from the project.
This decision is very surprising, as the resolution reached at the time when the project went from the preparation phase to the construction phase. The management of AR Delta, half of the city, managed to complete negotiations with the bank and the construction company, and valid contracts were concluded with both entities. Now the councilor and a representative from the YES and ODS movements are trying to block this project, to the mayor of Dohnal.
However, the mayor Ondej Prokop from ANO did not like much about the way the project was implemented. We entered the project with the fact that the supplier will move, even the project documentation and we will know exactly how much the project will cost. This did not happen in two years, and on the contrary, against his will, the co-owner signed contracts with Syner and started building, even if there was no agreement, explains the mayor of the city Ondej Prokop (YES).
But Mayor Dohnal does not see any problems in the dn project. At this point, all the conditions for a trouble-free installation process are met. Thus, the conditions set by the city upon joining AR Delta were met. I am convinced that the easiest way to protect the city and evaluate the total of 40 million crowns that it has invested in the project is to complete it as soon as possible, comments the current mayor.
He points out that the project implementer already has a bank loan of 135 million crowns. Only concrete monoliths for rough construction are ordered. Although PPF Bank takes note of the resolved representative on the suspension of the project, nothing can be said about it, the mayor added.
According to the mayor of Prokop, however, the city would have the opportunity to make appropriate use of the Arel of ice sports, as it was originally filled, even if it withdrew from the project.
If the city sells its share, it could enter into a contract that, for example, the arel will be available for cycles at a reasonable price from eight to ten o’clock in the next few days, explains Prokop. And it is convinced that the project would be completed even if the city left it.
The preparation of the project of the Ice Sports Arena in Chodov at the Ke Kateinkm base began in 2014. At that time, however, the master of the capital was involved in the city. The later project moved to the shoulders of Prague 11 mainly due to better knowledge of the issues in the city.
