Road services cut in South Tipperary


Road Services are to be hit in South Tipperary’s Budget for 2012.  Speaking on Tipperary Mid West Radio today the Cathaoirleach of the County Council, Michael Fitzgerald said that a total of €138,500 is to be taken from the allocation for that particular budget,  given that savings to the overall budget of €1.5million are needed. 

Other measures decided by the local authority members yesterday include an increase in water charges, €10,000 cut from tourism promotion, €50,000 cut from training for the fire service and cuts in technology and IT Training in the council.

Meanwhile Cashel Town Council has also raised its water rates.
