LETTERKENNY TO LAUNCH SCHEME TO FILL VACANT BUSINESS PROPERTIES

first_imgLetterkenny is to examine new ways of attracting businesses to the town in a bid to create jobs and develop a number of long-term vacant properties.The issue was raised at last night’s meeting of the Town Council during which a call was made to incentivise new start-up businesses.Cllr Dessie Lakrin said a number of initiatives could be considered including the reduction of rates for new companies. “I’m not talking about sandwich bars or that as much as they are creating their own employment.“I am talking about emerging businesses who need to be developed as they try to get off the ground.“They should not be in a position where they have to pay €10,000 or whatever in rates straight off. We should introduce a sliding fee for them,” he said.Ends LETTERKENNY TO LAUNCH SCHEME TO FILL VACANT BUSINESS PROPERTIES was last modified: April 12th, 2011 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)last_img read more
