Creditor suggests Košice councillors work for free

The Slovak based Prvá komunálna banka finance house has recommended, as part of a plan to dig the eastern Slovak city of Košice out of a possible cross-default debt crisis, that town councillors not be paid for participating in council sessions. The bank’s suggestion, which is not binding, was intended to help costs as Košice struggles to meet its debts.
