FERMOY TOWN CLERK COMES UNDER FIRE OVER MEETING
Fermoy town councilor, Olive Corcoran has this week expressed the view that the town clerk could have done more to facilitate members attending the June meeting which will elect a new mayor on June 15.
“This is a very important meeting and I think the town clerk could have done more to ensure that all the councillors could attend the meeting. As it is, some councillors will not be able to attend because of work commitments,” Cllr Corcoran told The Avondhu.
With the ongoing industrial action still in place at the town hall in Fermoy, the June meeting of the town council and the important matter of electing a new mayor was discussed at a gathering of the town councillors this week. It has been agreed that the town council meeting will take place at 4pm on Tuesday, June 15 and the election of the new mayor will take place at 6.15pm.
“This is an important meeting and I will not be able to make it because of work. This is the second time that I have been forced to miss a meeting, this situation cannot continue and I will be bringing this to the attention of the town clerk,” Cllr Colette Dolan Moore said.
Mayor Noel McCarthy is hopeful that the industrial action at the town hall will soon be over.
“These measures are only in place until the pubic service unions vote on the Croke Park agreement. I am hopeful that the situation will be rectified sooner rather than later,” Cllr McCarthy said.
