Municipal Office

The council administration has organised the Town Office as the central contact point for all administrative queries related to the community. It is situated on the ground floor of the civic centre and is open to all members of the population requiring information. The Town Office is also in charge of the council's „Einwohnerkontrolle“ (Register of Inhabitants) and the AHV-/disability insurance branch office. Forms, certificates, fee stamps and numerous brochures and information sheets about what is on offer in the community and the region, can all be obtained at the Town Office. The members of staff at the Town Office can provide information about who to contact in the case of more specific questions. They are happy to assist non-German speakers in English.

There are free advisory services for many questions and problems, particularly for social issues, in Reinach itself or in the region. However, since these services are usually not available in English it is advisable to take a German-speaking confidant along with you. Confidential information about the relevant services can also be obtained from the Town Office.
