Waterford City and County Council Budget signed off

Waterford City and County Council's amended Budget for 2023 has been signed off.

A meeting took place this afternoon which saw a vote on proposed commercial rates for businesses pass with unanimous decision.

Fine Gael, Fianna Fรกil and 4 independent councillors put forward the idea of a 3% increase which would then be refunded to small and medium businesses who undertake a specific climate action course.

Councillors have said that new government funding has been made available in recent days that will offset this refund.
