In order to promote the holistic development of the city, the city council decided in 1996 to have a municipal marketing concept drawn up. The contract was awarded to the company SHE-Marketing Communications GmbH from Regen, whose managing directors included Norbert Heigl, a native of Taufkirchen.
Within a year in cooperation with the company SHE GmbH, the community and all interest groups and institutions represented in the community area (business, clubs, schools, youth, senior citizens, agriculture ...), developed a catalog of measures, that increased the quality of live in every way.
To implement these measures, a body above party lines was formed, which was given the name "Columbus Achter".
The task of the Columbus Achter is to implement the strategies developed together with the municipal council. The Columbus Achter advises the local council, but also makes its own decisions, unless the local council or a committee is responsible. However, financial expenses can only be met within the budget made available by the municipal council.
