Minister Cuts South Tipp Budget by more than E1.8m

Roads maintenance budgets are to be cut by 32%, water and waste water networks and treatment plants are to lose 15% of budget and building and housing grants, including the Disabled Persons Grant, will also be cut by 15% because E1,851,128 is to be withheld from the County Council budget by the government.

Roads maintenance budgets are to be cut by 32%, water and waste water networks and treatment plants are to lose 15% of budget and building and housing grants, including the Disabled Persons Grant, will also be cut by 15% because E1,851,128 is to be withheld from the County Council budget by the government.

Because only 58% of homes have paid the Household Charge in South Tipperary the county council has been informed that 11% is to be cut from the annual Local Government Fund.

The original allocation was E17,472,862. See this weeks Tipperary Star for full details.
