Winding up

By March 3, 2020, the General Court of Székesfehérvár will establish the cause of the dissolution of the foundation without a legal successor and initiate the compulsory dissolution of the organization.
The founder's application was for the dissolution of the foundation, given that, after initial enthusiasm, determined work had ceased, no innovations had been made, and in May 2019, board members and its chairman resigned, trying to set up a new governing failed. For years, the foundation has no revenue of its own, subsidies received from only 1% of the tax, which were mainly used for operating costs.
The website and map services are still in operation, and we are working to ensure long-term operation in other frameworks!
