COUNCILLOR CONDEMNS CLAIMS OVER SEPTIC TANK CHARGES

first_imgIndependent Cllr. John Campbell has condemned reports that Donegal County Council has been asking people to provide proof of having paid the household charge when registering their septic tanks.He said he has been given assurances that this is not happening.‘There is no basis for the council to ask this, I checked in the Donegal public services centre and have been given assurances that it is not happening’ said Campbell. ’The vast majority of people in Donegal see the government scaremongering for what it is and have refused to register. It is the boycott of these charges that has brought about the early abolishment of the household charge, the abolishment of the NPPR at the end of the year, and forced Minister Phil Hogan to introduce a grant scheme that he said he wouldn’t.’‘The grant scheme as announced will be inadequate for very many people, and it is on that basis that I continue to call on people to boycott the registration of the septic tanks. We have Hogan on the back foot, it’s not the time to back off: we’ll keep the pressure on the Minister until a properly funded scheme is in place’‘The Minister has folded due to the boycott on numerous occasions over his term in office and I believe he will fold again on the grant system if the boycott is maintained.”COUNCILLOR CONDEMNS CLAIMS OVER SEPTIC TANK CHARGES was last modified: January 31st, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Cllr John Campbellseptic tankslast_img read more
