County's LPT tax decision due shortly
A decision by Wexford councillors on what level of Local Property Tax (LPT) residents will have to pay is due to be made in the coming weeks.
Head of Finance Annette O'Neill told last week's Wexford County Council meeting that the initial preparation for the 2018 budget process has now commenced. Ms O'Neill said the LPT public consultation process began in July with public notices printed in local newspapers and on the Wexford County Council website. The process concluded last week.
Ms O'Neill said the council continues to operate in overdraft. 'Ministerial sanction is in place for borrowing by way of overdraft in the amount of €13m for the period up to December 31st.'
