Notice of Consideration of Setting a Local Adjustment Factor

‌The Finance (Local Property Tax) Act 2012 (as amended), makes specific provision that elected members of a local authority may pass a formal resolution to vary the basic rate of the Local Property Tax for their administrative area by a percentage known as the local adjustment factor. At the meeting set by Mayo County Council to consider this matter, the members may set a local adjustment factor within the range of +/- 15% of the basic rate, or, may decide not to adjust the basic rate.

Mayo County Council will meet in September 2019 to consider the setting of a local adjustment factor.

Mayo County Council welcomes written submissions from the public on this matter specifically covering the potential effects of varying the basic rate of the Local Property Tax on businesses, individuals and on local authority services.

Submissions must be received by 9th August 2019 and be sent to:

Director of Finance
Mayo County Council,
Aras an Chontae,
The Mall,
Co. Mayo

Or, via email to:

Public Participation: Identification of Bathing Waters

Beach 2019 Public Participation

Local authorities must identify official bathing areas in their area every year so that they can be monitored for safety, water quality and their level of use.  To help with this process, Mayo County Council are asking people who swim at beaches, lakes and rivers to tell them if they think they should maintain existing designated bathing waters designations or give a new official bathing area designation to areas that are commonly used for swimming, but not identified at the moment.
