Municipal municipality (Canton Thurgau)

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Federal coat of arms
Municipality in Switzerland

The Thurgau municipal community comprised - in continuation of the community dualism of the Helvetic Republic - on the basis of the division decrees from 1803 to 1816, as a rule, several local communities . Where it only comprised one local congregation, the two went into what was later called the unified congregation from 1851/74 .

The municipal community carried out tasks assigned by the state (employment office, old-age and survivors ' insurance branch, funeral services, fire protection, hospitality, health care, residents' registration, social assistance and welfare, tax assessment and receipt, guardianship, civil registry office, civil protection), but enjoyed the same Self-administration rights such as the local and unitary communities.

The cantonal constitution , enacted in 1987, demanded the abolition of this communal dualism, with the result that the local and municipal congregations were absorbed into the political commune by 2000 .
