A new pump park will be realised by this summer. The existing pump track at Oey, Saanen, which can only be used on bikes du to the terrain, will be replaced by a fully paved one. This can be enjoyed on almost any vehicle on wheels such as scooters, inline skates, skatesb or skateboards.
Hans Schär, member of the liberal party FDP, was re-elected for a four-year term. He is the only representative of the Saanenland in the Grand Council. Politicians lament the low voter turnout of only 36.8%.
