The elected members of the Ballina Municipal District gave their approval for a proposed development of eight houses in Knockmore by the council this week. The plan will see the construction of three two bed houses, four three bed houses, and one four bed house in the development. The plans for this project were initially made back in 2009, but the economic circumstances in the country changed that, but now the project has been sanctioned to go ahead again.
Just under six and half hours into the second day of deliberations over the Mayo County Council's budget for next year, the whip of the controlling Fianna Fáil and Independent axis, Cllr Damien Ryan, got to his feet to get the real business under way. After around 15 hours of presentations and questions, over the previous Monday and then again last Friday, Cllr Ryan was ready to propose a budget for adoption with a few amendments to what had been proposed by the council executive.
The organisational structure of the senior management of Mayo County Council was raised once again this week by the elected members of the council at their April meeting. Fine Gael councillor Jarlath Munnelly questioned what would happen once the current director of services, Paddy Mahon, left the organisation to take up the role as the chief executive of Longford County Council in the near future. Cllr Munnelly said he hoped that each of the four municipal districts would retain a director of services over each area. This view was backed up by councillors of every political hue in the chamber, with Independent councillor Seamus Weir proposing a motion that each municipal district retain a director of services, which was seconded by Cllr Frank Durcan.
