The order of customer reception has changed. Due to the changed energy prices, departments of the Hegyvidék mayor's office (23-25 Böszörményi Rd.) will be closed on Thursdays and Fridays, until March 31 in order to save costs. During that period personal customer service is paused. At the same time, the staff of the offices are available by phone, e-mail and online at www.eugyintezes.hegyvidek.hu every working day. As for the tax administration office, as well as the town planning and chief architect's office, online video administration, which is unique at the municipal level, is also available. The change does not affect the operations of the Hegyvidék Police. On other days of the week, customer reception takes place in the usual order.
Fundraising for the Anna-meadow Chapel. For eighty years now, civil communities and church representatives have been calling for the construction of the "Chapel of Atonement of the Virgin Mary, Queen of the World" in Anna-meadow. A few years ago, the Archdiocese of Esztergom-Budapest and the Municipality of the Hegyvidék announced a joint tender for the construction of a new mass place. According to the chosen plan, a small chapel could be realized, which would be able to hold larger outdoor Masses by opening it to the meadow. Donations are needed for the construction of the chapel; believers can send their donations to the bank account No. 12001008-00155297-05200008 (IBAN: HU29 1200 1008 0015 5297 0520 0008) of the Hegyvidék Municipality of the Budapest Capital XII district.
