A council meeting was held on the 23rd of September to discuss and debate the issue of the Local Property Tax.
a Majority of Councillors voted for a 15% reduction of the tax.
I was part of a motion put forward by a group of independent councillors who aslo voted to have the LPT reduced by 15%.
Fingal County Council will have a surplus even after the reduction to use for added services in 2015
I voted for the reduction on the basis of what I heard on the doorsteps while out canvassing for the local elections.
Some people were in despair with all the taxes coming at them, The LPT is an Unfair and Inequitable Tax, to that end a group of like minded Independents are objecting to the tax in its present guise and we have produced a policy document on this issue.
