Abolition of the market town status of Turnišče


The community committee Turnišče

1934. 12. 8.


Turnišče had a special rank for centuries, as it was given market town privileges. Numerous documents have been retained by which Turnišče could prove repeatedly their market town privileges. On November 23, 1934, the community committee decided to end the settlement's rank as a market town. The reason for their proposal was that the inhabitants of the community are poor and due to the market town rank they had to pay hefty taxes. The Ministry of the Interior granted their request. Turnišče lost his rank as a market town on April 19, 1935, and was published in the Bulletin of the Royal Banat of Drava in 1935.
