McGovern calls for business rates to be abolished in Longford

Cllr Turlough 'Pott' McGovern (Independent)

Cllr Turlough McGovern has proposed that business rates be abolished for this year due to Covid-19.

“It makes sense to abolish the rates for the local businesses trying to re-open and stay in business,” he said.

He also said that for those business having a rates bill at the end of this year would have a serious financial strain on people.
