Council to consider easement of commercial rates

A rebate on commercial rates is to be considered by Kildare County Council, following the referral of a motion from Cllr Sorcha O'Neill to the Economic Special Policy Committee.

The motion, which called on the local authority to consider and budget to ease the commercial rates burden to businesses for 2016 was 'well received' by the Council, Cllr O'Neill says.

"Our towns are dying, and we need to do more to support local business," she said. "I am optimistic that we can deliver some relief to the SME sector in Kildare."
