Soon fifteen places for French services on the Côte d’Or
According to the government’s motto, the network of structures called France Services is “public services near you”. The one-stop shop takes care of day-to-day administrative procedures (health, family, retirement, taxes, housing, employment, etc.).
For the designation, the structure must give access to a precise list of public services: the general direction of public finances, the ministry of the interior, the ministry of justice, the Post office, the employment center, the National fund of the family allowances, health insurance, pension insurance and agricultural social exchange. In addition, partner communities can publish additional services.
To date, the Côte-d’Or has twelve French service locations. Soon, the signs will be placed in Ruffey-lès-Echirey, Nolay and Saint-Jean-de-Losne. The social centers will then be able to manage seven of these spaces.

According to Julie Malherbe, France Services in Pouilly-sur-Ouche processes around 60 cases each month. The director notes several requests for support for digital uses. Most of the requests are related to employment and retirement, not to mention registration documents or driving licenses.
The Community Center occupies an intermunicipal building undergoing expansion and energy renovation. The budget amounts to 600,000 euros.

“It is interesting to show the diversity of initiatives”
According to Mark Visnu, the aim of this visit was “to demonstrate the will of the State – thanks to local communities and union actors – to strengthen the presence in the regions”.
“The yellow vests crisis was also a crisis of feeling of abandonment by a number of regions and a number of citizens who felt that they were no longer able to access services,” said the minister. .

It’s here. I have the spirit of a local elected official. I was mayor and mayor. EPCI. At home, it was a mobile home in a mobile home. It works if it matches the way people are organized. (…) It is interesting to show the diversity of the initiatives. The role of the State is to let initiatives breathe.
