Payment plan for ratepayers
WEXFORD councillors have called for Government funding for a scheme to help ratepayers who find themselves in financial difficulty.
Cllr George Lawlor supported a motion from Clonmel council proposing that a waiver scheme be established.
' This is a major issue affecting many businesses in town. A number of businesses have had rates re-evaluated and have been subjected to large increases,' he said.
Cllr Fergie Kehoe suggested that ratepayers be allowed to set up weekly standing orders to help ease the burden of payment.
