Budget meeting getting underway at county council HQ

Donegal County Councillors meet later this morning to discuss the authority's revenue budget for 2010.

Coupled with the capital budget, which will be adopted next year, the council has a overall budget of just short of 220 million euro - half of what was available in 2007.

Councillor Dessie Larkin says today's priority will be trying to maintain front line services at their current levels and believes councillor will have to be realistic with their expectations.
