COUNCILLOR UNHAPPY WITH TOWN CLERK'S PERFORMANCE
Fermoy town councillor, Olive Corcoran is calling for the town clerk to, as she states, ‘start doing his job or else to resign’, writes Brian Moore.
“We need somebody who communicates with the people of the town. The business people and the residents of Fermoy are finding it very difficult to contact the town clerk and, on a personal level, the town clerk has left me under no illusions that he would not be available for any of my queries or concerns because of my criticism which came from the people of the town,” Cllr Corcoran told The Avondhu this week.
Cllr Corcoran is calling on the town clerk to, as she sees it, ‘start working for the people of the town’.
“I am calling on the town clerk to start working with the people of Fermoy; after all they pay his salary. The town clerk also needs to communicate with all the councillors on a regular basis and, most importantly, the business community of Fermoy need to know that the town hall is working to ensure a bright future for everybody,” Cllr Corcoran concluded.
The Avondhu submitted Cllr Corcoran’s comments to Fermoy Town Hall and town manager Michael Cremin responded by issuing this statement: ‘I reject the statement made by Cllr Corcoran. I am very satisfied with the town council and its staff in continuing to deliver all local services in the town.
'In relation to Cllr Corcoran’s particular comments on the need to communicate with all the councillors, the business of the town council continues at a formal monthly meeting and at regular informal meetings with all councillors with regard to any representations they wish to make’.
