County Manager sorry for billing those who already paid Household Charge

County Manager Seamus Neeley has told Donegal County Council that the amount of central government funding being lost to the council will not be as much as feared, but will still exceed a million euro.

Mr Neely told members that the council is still expected to balance its books, and it is in that context that preparations are being made for Budget 2013 in the face of what he termed considerable and significant challenges.

He repeated his call on people to pay the household charge, and apologised to people who received letters recently despite having paid, and especially to the families of people who were sent letters after their deaths.
