Raising rates and raising the local property tax were among the ideas floated at Monday’s monthly meeting of Dublin City Council.
At a special meeting, councillors voted through a list of measures seeking, they said, to address the “increasing erosion of cultural life and space” in the city.
Some councillors say the tax is unfair and plan to vote to keep it as low as possible until there is reform – even though this means millions less to spend on public services.
At a special meeting, Dublin city councillors decided to cut the local property tax by more, rather than provide more city services.
At City Hall on Tuesday, councillors voted for a 15 percent decrease in the local property tax after a debate that centered on whether it is a progressive tax.
Later this month, Dublin city councillors will vote to set the level of the Local Property Tax for Dubliners, including, in some cases, themselves. They could reduce it by up to 15 percent.
