Durcan calls for contractors to be brought in

Independent councillor Frank Durcan had a notice of motion at this week’s meeting of Mayo County Council calling on the council to put notice of motion works out to tender rather than have the work carried out in-house by council staff. Each councillor is given a set amount of money each year under the notice of motion heading which allows them to earmark the money toward certain works they want done by the council. However Cllr Durcan told the meeting that the councillors haven’t been getting value for money on these projects as they normally always get completed at the tail end of the year when the weather is bad and it takes longer and therefore costs more to do.

However Cllr Durcan’s proposal failed to find a seconder, with Cllr Gerry Ginty and Cllr Blackie Gavin both strongly speaking out against the motion.
