2014-01-06 - Stop the diversion of tax revenues from the budget of the Syndicat Intercommunal de Flaine.

’Stop the diversion of tax revenues from the budget of the Syndicat Intercommunal de Flaine’.

For the last two years, the budget of the Syndicat Intercommunal de Flaine (SIF, Flaine’s local public administrative entity) has been curtailed by our two local authorities, Arâches-La Frasse and Magland. Hundreds of thousands of Euros have been diverted and are not available to maintain a good level of working capital and investment capacity for the public infrastructure in Flaine.
Since this practice started, the Association Flainoise has been trying to inform tax payers and higher authorities about the problem.

The process may strictly speaking be legal, but it is clearly unethical. Would any taxpayer in Arâches-La Frasse or in Magland accept that his taxes were used for the benefit of another village? Surely not. . .. But it is what it is happening at the moment for some of those taxpayers, those who are local tax-payers in Flaine.

While Madam the Mayor of Arâches-La Frasse is congratulating herself in her local news-sheet on not having to resort to loan finance for the huge shiny new swimming pool and spa development in Les Carroz, SIF has had to borrow to compensate for the financial levy operated by the two municipalities. This is unacceptable.

The proceeds of the land sold for the ’Le Refuge du Golf’ residence, located in Flaine, went directly into the accounts of Arâches-La Frasse. Madam Mayor had announced compensating financing measures, but that money evaporated before any project was even defined. This is clearly also unacceptable.
As we are approaching local elections, we have to keep protesting about these practices, to ensure that the candidates understand and take account of this financial issue in their manifestos.

The elected representatives should have a responsible attitude and not to try to hide the financial mismanagement behind tricks affecting Flaine negatively. That’s why we are requesting transparency to make a clear assessment of the situation by getting access to the audit of the SIF finances that was carried out in 2013. By that mean we would be able to show the public the way these matters are handled and bring this to an end.
Please sign the online petition promoted by the Association Flainoise: ’Stop the diversion of tax revenues from the budget of the Syndicat Intercommunal de Flaine’.

Thank you for your support.
