Sinn Féin Councillor John Shéamais Ó Fearraigh has described plans to force local authorities to hand over development levy funds to Irish Water as ‘scandalous’, saying that it amounts to local authorities being ‘held to ransom’ by the company.The levy which in recent years was charged on new developments by local authorities throughout the country is now to be transferred to Irish Water because of a vesting order which was signed by Minister Alan Kelly earlier this week.“The Environment Minister this week signed off on handing yet more powers over to Irish Water which now has the permission to raid local authorities for more funds to prop up the shambolic company.” “Not content with raiding the pockets of Irish citizens, Irish Water has now been given the right to raid the coffers of councils as well.”He added it was bad enough that the Irish people have been forced to pay for water yet again with bills coming through letter boxes despite having already paid for their water via general taxation for years.But now, this latest decision by the Minister means that money continues to pour into this bottomless pit – this is scandalous, he added.“Local Authorities are already being starved of cash as it is and the last thing they need is for more funding to be diverted to Irish Water – local services are being decimated in the search for cash.” “Libraries, roads, footpaths, playgrounds, and endless local services continue to be neglected yet this government are perfectly content to redirect cash into Irish Water – local authorities are being held to ransom.”“If this government has any thought for the people of this country then they must abolish Irish Water immediately before any more public money is wasted on this unwanted, toxic brand.” IRISH WATER HOLDING LOCAL AUTHORITIES TO RANSOM – CLLR O FEARRAIGH was last modified: April 12th, 2015 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:donegalIrish Water
