Municipalities ask government for more funds

05-06-2012

Representatives of Czech municipalities on Tuesday asked the government to allocate more funding for development and support of businesses. The government’s Countryside Development Programme each year spends around 85 billion crowns on agriculture and only 15 billion on development projects in the country. Members of several associations representing Czech towns and villages said this should change so that beginning in 2014, 50 percent of the funding should be used on development projects.
