The campaign to head off or get a deferral on the rates revaluation for Waterford is gathering pace. Deputy John Deasy has raised the issue on behalf of businesses in the county and appears to be making some progress in the Dail. The Waterford TD, having met with the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform last week, has scheduled another meeting with senior officials in September to allow for a redraft of amendments to new legislation to factor in the difficulties businesses will have in paying additional commercial rates.
