Cllr O'Domhnaill

There are calls for Donegal County Council to drastically reduce the cost it charges for providing a water metre with claims that small farmers are being driven out of the industry because of high costs.
Currently there is a standing charge of 290 euro per metre, this regardless of whether the consumer is a small farmer, a church, sports hall or a multi-million euro business..
Independent Councillor Seamus O’Domhnaill has called for the charge to be reduced to 80 euro – there are proposals to reduce it to 175 euro in next weeks budget but he says thats not enough:
