Dear residents of Tamar,

This month, a significant agreement for the future of the region was signed between the Tamar Regional Council and the Middle Arava Regional Council, mediated by Minister of the Interior Ayelet Shaked and Director General of the Ministry of Interior Yair Hirsch.

Together with the head of the council of the Middle Arava, Meir Tzur, I signed an important agreement, the first of its kind, which includes the exchange of territories and cooperation between the councils.

As part of the agreement, Middle Arava Council will transfer Middle Prairie Agricultural lands for M.A. Tamar, while Regional Council Tamar will transfer extensive areas to the Middle Arava, which also include areas of aggregate mines.

In addition, our council will purchase services in the fields of agriculture (including support for agricultural R&D) and health (treatment center, professional medicine, etc.) from Moaz Arava. More importantly, we have received a governmental commitment signed by the Minister of the Interior and guaranteed by the chairman of the local governments association that there will not be any changes or discussions about open borders between the regions and/or income distribution without agreement for the next ten years, I am happy that the Ministry of the Interior realized that by working together we can combine the needs of the two councils and achievements can be reached for the benefit of all the residents of both regions and that it does not help any side if the ministrty acts unilaterally as it has in the past.

Yours,

Nir Wanger
