Große Kreisstadt: Difference between revisions

no edit summary
The term is officially used and quoted. In different German federal states (''Bundesländer'') there are different laws and administration rules about when exactly a town can obtain this status but they do not differ very much. The [[mayor]] of a ''Große Kreisstadt'' usually bears the title of an ''Oberbürgermeister'' ("Chief Burgomaster").
 
At the moment reforms are being discussed in some states. It is not a main goal of these reforms to make the rules more similar,; inon the oppositecontrary, the district towns are thought to be important in order to keeppreserve the existing regional diversity of regions. In Germany federal states have very similar administration rules, so they are not always comparable to [[U.S. state]]s for example.
