The municipalities of Walchwil and Baar cooperate

The municipality of Walchwil is outsourcing part of its notarial services to the municipality of Baar. The cooperation will begin on 1 January 2022.

Notary's offices perform important functions in the municipalities of the inhabitants: They are responsible for all public certifications in civil matters (real estate law, matrimonial property and inheritance law, company law, etc.). Smaller municipalities in particular are not always able to guarantee notarial services if the person in charge is unavailable. The presidents of the municipalities in the canton of Zug have therefore suggested network solutions: municipalities should cooperate in the area of notarial services, use synergies and optimise the public service.

The municipalities of Walchwil and Baar have therefore drawn up and finalised the modalities of such cooperation in an agreement. Within the framework of this agreement, the notary's office of the municipality of Baar will carry out some of the work for the notary's office of the municipality of Walchwil from 1 January 2022. The four notaries of the Baar residents' municipality will thus relieve the Walchwil notary and municipal clerk René Arnold. The latter handles the triage of business cases and instructs the notary's office of the municipality of Baar. Cases assigned to the Baar notary's office are executed from the Baar location. The clients of the Walchwil notary's office are informed accordingly. Notarisations will continue to be carried out by the municipal office in Walchwil. The cooperation with Walchwil is not new territory for Baar. Baar has already been handling the notary's office of the Neuheim residents' municipality since 1 August 2020.

The notary's office of the Baar residents' municipality is located in the municipal administration at Rathausstrasse 6 in Baar. The official opening hours apply. In order to guarantee the services, it is requested that an appointment be made. If possible, the notaries are also available for clients outside the official opening hours.

The agreement approved by the Cantonal Department of Home Affairs is initially valid for a period of two years. After this period, the agreement will be evaluated and a decision made on how to proceed.

First public e-charging station in Walchwil

Municipal President Stefan Hermann and WWZ CEO Andreas Widmer unveiled the new charging station at the Walchwil station car park on Friday, 2 July 2021.

Here, two vehicles can be charged simultaneously with regional solar power. The charging point is part of the EVPass charging network (www.evpass.ch), the payment process is contactless by credit card and all common charging network cards.

As with all of WWZ's public charging points, charging is also carried out using 100 per cent regional solar power. Walchwil is thus taking a further step towards obtaining the Energy City label.

"Today, most electric cars are charged at home or at work," explains Andreas Widmer. "But a well-developed public charging network offers security, especially for journeys beyond the usual distances, and also contributes to the attractiveness of a municipality as a location."

Stefan Hermann adds: "We want to make our contribution at the municipal level and provide forward-looking mobility infrastructures to a reasonable extent."

The municipality is pleased to be able to provide the general public with an e-charging station in the centre of the municipality, which is operated by WWZ AG on behalf of the municipality.
