Background to the name decision

When establishing a merger councilNakasen Town(Current:Daisen City(Chusen district) was also asked to participate in the council, but eventually it was held in the current three towns and villages.

Regarding the mergerHeisei 15In September, we held a discussion that "Kakunodate and Lake Tazawa should be connected".[8]However, the former Tazawako Town and the former Kakunodate Town are competing for the initiative after the merger, and the two towns are in conflict.A compromise was proposed for the names of the cities, including the names of both towns, but the two towns were in conflict and could not be decided, depending on which one had the crown, "Tazawako Kakunodate City" or "Kakunodate Tazawako City".

After that, the council proposed a resident questionnaire to select the name.As a result, "Michinoku", "Kakukan", "Lake Tazawa", and "Northern Capital" are candidates at the final stage.[9]However, the conflict between the two towns could not be resolved at "Kakunodate" and "Lake Tazawa", and "Michinoku" was around.TohokuOpposition from local governments in each prefecture (especially on the Pacific side) ("Michinoku"MutsuIt is oldDewakuniThis district is not included), which prevented the chairman of the council from bringing it to the vote.After the name was decided by the council again, it settled down to "Semboku City" which was once excluded from the candidates in the third selection.[10]

However, after that, the conflict between the former Tazawako Town and the former Kakunodate Town became more serious, and the former Kakunodate Town Mayor declared that he would withdraw from the council.[11], Former Tazawako Town and former Nishiki Village have set up the "Nishiki Tazawako Merger Council". The "Nishiki Tazawako Merger Council" agreed that the name of the town would be "Tazawako Town" and the location of the government office would be the former Nishikimura government office.

In the former Kakunodatemachi, the mayor who changed the policy from "merger promotion" to "single independent town unavoidable" during the merger talks resigned and held a re-election, and as a result, Naoji Ishiguro (the first mayor) who held the "merger promotion". Is elected.Former Tazawako Town and former Nishiki Village accepted the former Kakunodate Town again and the "Nishi Tazawako Kakunodate Merger Council" resumed (until the merger, the "Nishi Tazawako Kakunodate Merger Council" and "Nishiki Tazawako Merger Cooperative" coexisted).

In addition, when the name was decided, in Akita prefectureSenboku-gunSembokuchoHowever, it has already been decided that the name of Sembokucho will disappear due to the merger with Daisen City, and there were not many voices of opposition and doubts from the citizens of the prefecture.

Place name after the merger

In some areas, the district name is removed, and the letters are added or separated.However, after the merger of the former Tazawako Town, instead of "Tazawako Town, Semboku City", "Lake Tazawa, Semboku CityIs written.

  • Lake Tazawa, Semboku City (formerly Lake Tazawa Town)
  • Kakunodatemachi, Semboku City (formerly Kakunodatemachi)

At the beginning of the merger, the monthly fee for members of the Diet was set at 408,000 yen for the chairman, 357,000 yen for the vice chairman, and 340,000 yen for the members.Compared to the old towns and villages, the amount of remuneration has increased significantly, nearly doubling.The case where the rate of increase in parliamentary remuneration due to the merger is so high is extremely unusual among the municipalities created by the Great Heisei Consolidation.Currently on this matter[When?]However, although criticism has been received from many residents, the majority of the opinion in the parliament that this rate of increase is reasonable, so far.[When?]There is no prospect of a review.

In addition, there is an annual political investigation fee of 12 yen.
