On 18 July the County Construction Supervision Inspectorate issued an administrative decision No. 148/2013 ordering Ms. Neukirch-Grychtoł to elevate the chimneys in compliance with the provisions of the Construction Code. 
Due to the lack of funds for the execution of the smoke prevention system, which is a condition for obtaining a permit to use the facility, the Silesian Philharmonic turned to the Department of Investment of the Marshal Office of the Province of Silesia with a request for consultations on that matter. Three meetings devoted to this issues were held: a meeting of the representatives of the Silesian Philharmonic with officials from the Department of Investment of the Marshal Office of the Province of Silesia (17 July), the Contract Engineer with the Department of Investment (22 July) and the representatives of the Silesian Philharmonic with Marshall A. Gajewska (24 July). On 25 July the Silesian Philharmonic turned to the Intermediate Body of the Operational Programme Infrastructure and Environment – Department of European Funds of the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage with a request for a permission to prolong the period of eligible expenses of the project until 31 March 2014 and for a permission to shift the funds from fittings to construction works. The permission for the changes referred to above was granted on the last day of July.
