“There haven’t been any difficulties so far,” Hartl told TASR, adding that there are about 55-60 refugees staying there.
The asylum seekers will stay in Berg until the end of their asylum procedure, which is to take six months at most.
A number of volunteers are dealing with the asylum seekers, helping them with German language lessons, for example. Asylum seekers that are accommodated in Berg are also participating in events organised by the village or by various associations, according to him.
“They are very friendly and helpful,” said Hartl, as quoted by TASR.
At the moment they are not carrying out any public works, but that does not depend on them, but on the capacity of the village’s staff resources and on the season of the year, according to Hartl, adding that the municipality is working on such an option.
