Families to face bills of €370 a year for water - Latest News, Personal Finance - Independent.ie
I wonder how many people will vote for FG LAB and get caught out by this?FAMILIES can expect to be hit with water bills averaging 370 a year when charging is introduced next year.
The EU/IMF agreement says charging must begin from 2014 but the Government may decide to delay the inevitable until after the local elections that year. This is because there are concerns that homeowners hit with a full year of the property tax that was introduced last month, plus water charges will then vote against the coalition government parties of Fine Gael and Labour in the June 2014 elections.
