BUDAPEST GENERAL ASSEMBLY ALLOCATES FUNDS FOR DRUG PREVENTION

 

The Budapest assembly decided at a meeting to establish a 20 million forint (EUR 60,000) allocation for drug prevention to support NGOs and other organisations working in the field. Funding will be available by application, to be assessed by a committee before a final decision is made by the mayor. A Budapest Drug Prevention Coordination Forum set up in line with an assembly decision this March is chaired by the mayor and co-chaired by the Budapest police chief. Additionally, the body has ruled that during smog alerts, restrictions will be expanded to the use of Euro-5 diesel engines in Budapest. The assembly has also decided to allow the city to raise a loan on 7.4 billion forints in order to acquire 100% ownership of the Rác thermal baths and hotel during its current liquidation procedure.
