Since my last posting some year ago Frederiksvaerk has gone through some changes. This was largely due to slow process of lossing its population base.
[ From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ]
Until January 1, 2007, Frederiksværk was also a municipality (Danish, kommune) in Frederiksborg County on the island of Zealand (Sjælland) in eastern Denmark, located between Lake Arre (Arresø) and Roskilde Fjord. The municipality covered an area of 90 km², and had a total population of 20,340 (2005). Its last mayor was Helge Friis, a member of the Social Democrats (Socialdemokraterne) political party.
Frederiksværk municipality ceased to exist due to Kommunalreformen ("The Municipality Reform" of 2007). It was merged with existing Hundested municipality to form the new Frederiksværk-Hundested municipality. This created a municipality with an area of 120 km² and a total population of ca. 30,253.
