Longford County Council to increase LPT by 5% for 2018— Longford Leader (@Longford_Leader) September 13, 2017
Twelve months ago, councillors decided to reduce the LPT by 3% and they made this move despite being warned that it would result in a reduction of €63,000 in revenue for the Council.
The 3% LPT reduction meant homeowners were saving approximately 5 cents per week or €4.20 over twelve months.
