Unoccupied commercial property on rates hitlist - Tribune

Ah yes, more stealth tax from our noble leaders. Rates are a hindrance to business. It’s easy to say “rates should be abolished”, but I would go further and say “town and county councils should be abolished”. Everybody knows that a “good job” in the town/county council is a walk in the park “if you can get it”.

Lots of vacant commercial property down here in Tralee - and their still building more of it!

That’s nuts. I for one welcome the proposed change. In fact I’d impose punitive rates for idle commercial property.
