Chief Executive welcomes Council’s decision to reduce Local Property Tax by 10%

The Chief Executive of Fingal County Council, Paul Reid, has welcomed the decision of councillors at last night’s monthly meeting to reduce the 2018 Local Property Tax by 10 per cent.

Councillors have the option each year to make an adjustment in the Local Property Tax of up to 15 per cent but they voted by 20 votes to 17 to accept a Labour Party motion to impose a 10 per cent reduction.

“I welcome the decision of the elected members to impose a 10 per cent reduction as this will generate €1.9m which will be ring-fenced for local services, housing and homeless supports,” said Mr Rei
