The May meeting of the Kanturk/Mallow Municipal District of Cork County Council will take place on Friday, 1st May 2015 in the County Council Offices at Anabella, Mallow.
These meetings are held once a month, where the six councillors representing the Kanturk/Mallow Municipal District Area meet with the engineers that cover the area.
Councillors are entitled to submit a maximum of three motions in advance of the meeting on issues relating to day to day services provided by Cork County Council, such as roads, water, housing, waste water etc… The engineers have a written response to present at the meeting which is then discussed.
My motions for the May meeting are as follows:
- “That the members of the Kanturk/Mallow Municipal Districts seek approval from the Department of Environment, Community & Local Government for Cork County Council to employ additional frontline staff in order to continue to deliver core services throughout the district in a safe, efficient and effective manner. The area offices in the district currently have insufficient staff numbers to deliver core services with the retirement of a number of frontline staff since the recruitment embargo was put in place in 2009”.
- “That the Kanturk/Mallow Municipal District Office would identify sites/locations within the five towns in the district in order to facilitate people holidaying in campervans. Services required would be overnight parking facilities, water and waste water services. This would encourage the increasing number of people holidaying in campervans across the country from within Ireland and abroad to come to our towns which has the facilities they need while also enjoying the services that these five towns have on offer”.
- That the Kanturk/Mallow Municipal District Office would arrange through the Environment Directorate a leaflet drop to all households in the North Cork region outlining the services available in the three Civic Amenity Sites in the District while also outlining the new opening hours of each site which is a cause of confusion presently”.
