Members of Mayo County Council agree to raise the commercial rate by 7.5 per cent

Members of Mayo County Council yesterday agreed to a proposal to increase the commercial rate by 7.5 per cent.

However, a “business support scheme” will mean that 81 percent of ratepayers will not pay an increase.

That’s according to the Mayo News which says the decision to strike a rate and adopt the 2018 Council Budget followed hours of talks and negotiations yesterday between the majority Fianna Fail and Independent group and members of the Council Executive.
