Public Meeting – Rates Valuations
Posted on : February 18, 2017
You are invited to attend a public meeting on Monday next Feb 20th in The Bush Hotel at 7.00pm.
The meeting will be addressed by a representative from the Valuation Office who will clarify any issues we may have on the recently issued new valuations for purposes of Rate paying in 2018.
The meeting will be chaired by a member of Carrick Chamber of Commerce.
It is important that you bring correspondence received from the valuation office for your own information. Beforehand you should check that the measurements given of your premises are correct and that the category into which your business is placed is correct.
This meeting has been called for by retailers in town who feel that the valuation given as rental value is overestimated. We hope to have Local Auctioneers present who have more recent knowledge of what is achievable in rents.
Many retailers received their correspondence dated 19th January. It is essential that any communication with the valuation office is done within 40 days of this letters issue date.
We urge you to attend this meeting or to elect someone to attend on your behalf.
