Govt halves cap on chimney sweep fees
Hungary's government has decided to reduce the per-unit cap on chimney sweep fees by 50% to HUF 2,000 from July 1, the National Development Ministry said on Friday. The cut is part of recent government measures to reduce household utilities costs. The government mandated a 10% reduction of household electricity, gas and district heating prices from the start of the year, and Parliament recently approved legislation that will reduce fees for water, sewage and rubbish pickup from July.
