A FIANNA Fáil candidate for Limerick North in next May’s local election has identified the lack of progress by City Council in taking charge more than ten estates in Corbally as one of his main priorities.

Christy McInerney claims that some of the residents in the estates are waiting over 30 years for the local authority to take charge.

“The lack of service is obvious. Although the residents continue to pay their property tax, the maintenance is left up to the householders,” he said.

He is calling on Environment Minister Phil Hogan to introduce a rebate for all householders who have paid their property tax, but currently do not receive any service from their local authority.

“It’s an outrage taking money off people and not providing any service. This wouldn’t be tolerated in any other sector,” he added.
