Modernizing the Department

The department, with municipalities, the oldest unit of the Republic, created in 1790.
It is still the largest heir of the laws of decentralization from 1982 and 1983, with the removal of state supervision and the transfer of a larger number of skills with their compensatory resources. The state still remains very present there since the county territory is always the privileged space of the decentralized procedure. Its central purpose is that of all the solidarity, social solidarity but also regional solidarity (transport infrastructure …) and with common financial and intermunicipal. * the social solidarity is expressed daily on welfare (families, children …), aid to the elderly (accommodation, remains at home … APA), adults with disabilities (accommodation, support …) , people suffering exclusion (RMI, RMA …). Also adds the actions in the field of education (college management …) where it express the objectives of democratization and citizenship. .

If this project recognizes, with new transfers of powers, the central role of decentralized departments in France, the weight of the planned shipments, dubbed a disengagement of the State (APA, weakness compensatory resources, risk of experimentation, transfer RMI-RMA, national roads …), may come stifle the dynamics that express themselves and endanger the county finances and lead to an increase in taxation. It is then the Aveyron who will pay for their solidarity, public service, their opening up … and not a national solidarity. The establishment of an equalization between rich and poor departments department is one of the solutions to this perspective. However, some areas, such as roads or major utilities, equalization is not enough. National wealth, see European, must play. Agriculture support the main activity of our department. General Council of the policy can be summarized in three areas: * An investment support (young farmers, land improvement put on the animal housing standards, land management …) * support to organizations and structures contributing to agriculture (subsidies to associations and professional bodies, to help promote the Aveyron agriculture, premium horse breeders, county orchard conservatory …) * Management of the departmental veterinary laboratory. all of these actions is credited with a budget of 1,437,083 euros (9.5 MP) New skills As part of decentralization, the state transfers skills to departments for TOS (personal service colleges) and management of solidarity housing fund and its extension to the aid for unpaid water, power and telephone …
