Food Awareness Campaign
Offaly County Council has teamed up with Westmeath County Council and the celebrity chef Catherine Fulvio to launch a FOOD awareness campaign. Each year, the average household throws out €700 worth of food – this is money straight into your refuse bin. The aim of the campaign is to demonstrate how we can prevent food waste in our home by being more versatile with our ingredients and planning our meals to get the maximum value from the food we buy. This campaign will also offer advice on how to manage your food waste at  home via the brown bin and composting.

Tellus is led by the Geological Survey of Ireland and is funded by the Department of Communications, Energy and Natural Resources.  The current survey is the fourth phase of a wider geological mapping project which collects and analyses geochemical and geophysical data on rocks, soil and water across Ireland. 

Local Propert Tax(LPT) 2016 : Notice of consideration of setting a Local Adjustment Factor
  The Finance (Local Property Tax) Act 2012 (as amended), makes specific provision that elected members of a local authority may pass a formal resolution to vary the basic rate of the Local Property Tax for their administrative area by a percentage known as the local adjustment factor. At the meeting set by Offaly County Council to consider this matter, the members may set a local adjustment factor within the range of +/- 15% of the basic rate, or, may decide not to adjust the basic rate. Offaly County Council will meet on 21st September 2015 to consider the setting of a local adjustment factor for 2016. Offaly County Council welcomes written submissions from the public on this matter specifically covering the potential effects of varying the basic rate of the Local Property Tax on businesses, individuals and on Local Authority services.
