Swimming in MOM Sport. Thanks to the energy savings ordered by the Hegyvidék Municipality and the overhead support provided by the government, the inner, 25-meter swimming pool of MOM Sport (Csörsz utca 14-16.) awaits guests even in the winter months, and on the first of February the outer pool number 33 was also opened. Despite the achieved reduction in consumption, the operation of the sports hall can only be maintained by raising the rental fees and the price of entrance fees. At the same time, the municipality will take over the value of the increase from February 1 to pensioners with local addresses, those under the age of 18 and those in social need. The condition for using the discount is registration in the e-administration system of the municipality.
