Construction works, furniture and IT equipment for the Community hub cost around 15,500  BAM (excluding VAT), and computer equipment around 4,500 BAM. Works on repairing and arranging locker room of the local football club amounted around 22,000 BAM. All projects are supported by the City budget in the amount of 30%.- The LC Council has decided that the Community hub can be used by all citizens for free. For the coming period, we planned various activities such as foreign language courses, sections and workshops for all generations – was announced by the President of the LC Council "Vuk Karadzic", Miroslav Bajić.The project "Strengthening the role of local communities in BiH" is funded by the governments of Sweden and Switzerland, and implemented by UNDP.
