Land for Training Base City Transferred to Yeruham


The Ramat Hanegev Regional Council and the Yeruham local council signed an agreement, Sunday evening, that will transfer the land on which the Israel Defense Forces' training-base city is being built to Yeruham. The impact of the move is four million shekels a year in the future for Yeruham.

The move must be approved by a committee to review area border changes and by Interior Minister Gid'on Sa'ar. Similar situations exist where local communities seek areas which generate property tax revenue, currently held by the regional councils.
