The local council of Budapest plans to expand out-door dining areas in public spaces and steeply discount usage fees to support local catering businesses after pandemic restrictions are lifted, deputy mayor Erzsébet Gy. Németh said on Monday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
Németh said the fees the city charges to use public spaces for outdoor dining would be reduced "almost 100%". She added that the application process for licenses to use public spaces would be streamlined.
The measures are part of a recovery package the municipal council is drafting.
Németh said city leaders want to respond flexibly to business owners' suggestions while ensuring everybody's safety.
