Cork County Council has become the first county council to commit to a 15% cut in the local property tax.

The motion was proposed and seconded by Sinn Féin councillors, who argued that the tax didn’t take into account a person’s ability to pay.

Fears have been raised, however, over a possible effect on the provision of services, as a result of a possible €6m shortfall in the Council’s budget.

Council CEO Tim Lucey has said that public submissions on the issue would be welcomed by the council in mid-July, and a decision would be reached by September 30th.
