Party zone mayor asks Orbán for help

Newly elected Seventh District mayor Péter Niedermüller has asked Prime Minister Viktor Orbán in a letter for financial help to ease problems caused by heavy tourism in Budapest’s so-called Party Zone.

Niedermüller, a Democratic Coalition politician, said the additional funds would be spent on easing damage and improving the living conditions of local residents.

Observing that the state receives tens of billions of forints in revenues annually from restaurants, clubs and bars in the area, he said the state could refunnel Ft 1 billion of that to considerably improve the state of the district.

Niedermüller also asked Orbán to name somebody with decision-making powers with whom talks could begin on the future of the district.
