Public meetings about discussions on amalgamation

Public meetings, about the ongoing discussions on amalgamation between the municipalities Ásahreppur, Rangárþing ytra, Rangárþing eystra, Mýrdalshreppur and Skaftárhreppu, under the project name „The Municipality of Suðurland“, will be held in the upcoming weeks. The purpose of the meetings is to provide information about the project and give residents the opportunity to give their opinions and insights on the discussions.

Due to the current restrictions on public gatherings the meetings will be conducted as video conferences through the Zoom video conferencing software. The presentations will be streamed on the internet and recordings made available after the meetings. Those who wish to participate in discussions after the presentations must register and connect to the meetings via Zoom. The presentations and discussions will be conducted in Icelandic.
