Your job is to do business, not fill out forms

That’s the way we see things in Monheim am Rhein, which also shapes how our city's administration approaches service. All centres cooperate with one another so that we are capable of offering short processing times instead of long official channels. Where else, for example, could you get a building permit in just five weeks? For our business development department, service also means taking care of business operators from the initial contact up to the opening of the new location. 

 

The integration of the business development department directly in the mayor’s staff department guarantees fast, solutions-based processing so that projects are mutually guided towards a successful outcome. The city’s administration always has an open ear for the interests of businesses: The Monheim Midday Meetings gives companies an opportunity to meet with the mayor and business development department in a pleasant atmosphere four times a year.
