Westport Town Council has so far totted up a bill of €40,000 in dealing with the extreme weather conditions which have plagued the county over the past few weeks.
Independent Ballina town councillor Peter Clarke will travel to Scranton, Pennsylvania, to represent the town at its St Patrick’s Day parade on March 13. He was proposed by Cllr Francis McAndrew and seconded by Mayor Mary Kelly. Independent councillor Gerry Ginty told the meeting: “As one who usually objects to these type of trips, I don’t to this one as there is only one person going and with Cllr Clarke out there promoting the Clarke Collection, it could have a major pay off in the long run to the town.”
The members of Ballina Town Council took another step towards the opening of the Jackie Clarke Library in the town with the passing of a part eight report on the project put before them at their monthly meeting this week. The part eight report which was put out for public consideration last year saw one submission which came from three sons of Jackie Clarke received by the council in relation to the proposed project. Independent councillor Peter Clarke, who is also a son of Jackie Clarke, excused himself from discussion on the report saying: “It might be perceived that I have a conflict of interest in this matter, but I’d like to put it on the record that myself and my mother would hope that you do the right thing in relation to this.”
The proposed new long stay car park for Ballina, located at the soon to be vacated Ballina Town Council depot at Bachelors Walk in the town saw the town engineer, Michael O’Grady, and Mayor Mary Kelly clash over inviting the sole objectors to come in and discuss their objections with the council. Mr O’Grady told the council that only one couple put in a submission on the part eight report to the council and that it was more of an objection than a submission. He outlined the issues raised in the submission and his response to each of those issues, which included safety concerns, visibility concerns, anti social behaviour, noise issues, and potential use of the car park by boy racers.
