Elected Members for Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council voted to adopt Budget 2022 which provides for over €213 million in expenditure on service provision.
The annual revenue Budget provides funding for a very broad range of services including foot path, cycle lane and road maintenance, energy efficient streetlighting, enhancing our parklands and public spaces, sports and community facilities, developing biodiversity and heritage initiatives as well as providing grants for local businesses. The budget also provides for the maintenance and repair of Council owned homes, corporate buildings and parks.

In all the Council provides over 700 different services to the residents, businesses and visitors in our county. In preparing the dlr Annual Budget, the Council is obliged to adopt a balanced budget. We must consider, hand in hand with our statutory obligations, our delivery of the Councils corporate objectives and balance the varied needs of everyone in our area. This is an in-depth process, involving many months of consideration due to the amount of service areas that the Council are involved in.

Speaking of the adoption of the Budget, An Cathaoirleach, Cllr Lettie McCarthy said:

The Council Annual budget meeting is an extremely important time in the year of every County Council. I am ambitious for what we can do as a Council, to continue to develop this as a great place to live and thrive, to be young and grow old, as well as an attractive place to do business. I am happy that we could provide a budget to maintain most services at a high level despite a challenging economic climate.

This Council is always committed to providing the very best possible service delivery, to ensure that our county continues through 2022 to be attractive, inclusive and accessible for all.
