Plan to divide Beit Shemesh

Some members of the city council's opposition have drawn up plans for dividing the city if that's what it takes to put a stop to the corrupt Haredis now running it. And here's why:
According to eight of the nine members of the opposition within the Beit Shemesh municipal council who now advocate splitting the city, Abutbul and his administration has refused to bring them into the coalition.

Shortly after the vote, Eli Cohen, who lost the mayoral election to Abutbul, along with leaders of the other non-haredi parties, presented a document setting out the basis on which they would agree to join Abutbul’s coalition.

The document stipulated that plans for the expansion of the city be revised to ensure construction for the non-haredi sector, requested that neighborhood administrations be established and given their own budgets, and that the administration for the Old Beit Shemesh district be entrusted to a non-haredi representative.

In addition, they requested a cultural center, sports center and library whose construction has suffered from extensive delays be completed along with other municipal amenities but did not make any demands for administrative portfolios, the party leaders emphasized.

Cohen and other non-haredi leaders argue that their requests have been ignored and Abutbul has not worked to include them in running the city.

“We wanted to build a model for cooperation in this city, but it hasn’t happened,” Cohen told The Jerusalem Post.

We weren’t the ones to build a separation wall in a school, it was the municipal administration, and it was the municipal administration which refused to include the opposition in the running of the city.

“We have set principles for cooperation, but they have been rejected. There is no option now but to divide the city, because there is a complete chasm in the perspective of how to run the city. The haredim are building a haredi city without care for the city’s diverse and multi-cultural nature.”
If that's how the Haredis now running the shop are going to act, then it's fully understandable why the city would have to be divided into 2 municipalities.
