Gregory Christmasthe mayor of Budapest reported on his official Facebook page that the popular capital city was in big trouble Operetta theater. Based on what the mayor said, he just received a letter from the institution stating that they are unable to pay the HUF 95 million rent due to the energy crisis.
The Operetta Theater is maintained and financed by the government – he stated in his post Gergely Karácsony.
What is happening now? Since the government does not finance the Operetta Theatre, they therefore do not pay the rent. This income is missing from the capital asset manager, to whom, for example, to be able to pay salaries, we have to give this money to our current account credit. And then they ask us where the money is? Congratulations!
– said the mayor on his Facebook page.
Gergely Karácsony explains the history of the Operettszínház as “the government is picking the pockets of the local governments, Budapest is also cutting its own pockets to make sure that there is no money left to run the capital.”
Budapest may run out of money by the end of the month
According to Deputy Mayor Ambrus Kiss, there is still some money in the capital’s account, but it will soon run out. By the end of April, Budapest paid HUF 17.9 billion more than it received from the state budget as a norm. Budapest is expected to be operating from its credit line by the end of May, Ambrus Kiss stated about the city’s financial situation.
Earlier, Gergely Karácsony also spoke about the fact that the capital practically has no financial savings, and he considers it extremely outrageous that the political decisions of the Hungarian government took away the city’s financial reserves.
In April, the capital assembly adopted the survival program of the city administration, in which they aimed, among other things, to stabilize the budget situation, after, according to their calculations, the capital city will have a HUF 76 billion deficit by August.
The city administration explained that the deduction of the business tax and the solidarity contribution meant a direct government deduction of HUF 148 billion for Budapest. The mayor also talked about Budapest becoming a net contributor to the central budget.
