Gemeente Margraten - General (393 words)
The municipality of Margraten consists of the parishes of Margraten, Cadier en Keer, Bemelen, Sint Geertruid, Mheer, Noorbeek, Banholt, Eckelrade and Scheulder.
During the municipal restructuring of 1982, the name Margraten was chosen for the municipality, as this name was very well known due to the presence of the American military cemetery.
The town council, however, is of the opinion that this extraction should not be allowed to expand indefinitely and should be capped at a limited expansion of the present quarry.
