Letterkenny council officials called to crack down on rogue traders

Letterkenny Town Council is urging officials to get tough on unauthorised developments.

A number of council members have raised concerns about an unauthorised development which has been operating in the town in recent weeks.

Members said at a time when businesses who pay their rates and water charges are facing unprecedented difficulties, it is utterly wrong that they are being undercut by rogue operators who pay nothing to the council and make no contribution to the town.

Cllr Tadhg Culbert is calling firm and swift action. [podcast]http://www.highlandradio.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/12/tadhg830.mp3[/podcast]
