Local Improvement Scheme coming back in 2013 — Ring

The Minister of State for Tourism and Sport, Michael Ring, has announced that the Local Improvement Scheme (LIS ) will be brought back this year.

Mayo County Council will get a discretionary grant of €3.6 million for 2013, and up to seven per cent of this can be used for the LIS scheme.

“The removal of the LIS scheme has been a concern of mine for some time since it was removed last year and I have raised this issue on several occasions with the Minister for Transport, Leo Varadkar, during 2012. I am pleased that the scheme is returning in 2013 and this means that some LIS roads will be repaired this year,” explained Minister Ring.
