FERMOY RESIDENTS ANGRY OVER EMPTY PROMISES
“We were given a promise that work would commence to resolve the water issues in the Baile Ard estate by May 1. It is almost two months since that date and there has been no action,” Joe Tobin, PRO for the residents’ association claimed this week.
Chairman, Timmy Flynn said that there is definitely four to five months work involved and it needs to start sooner rather than later.
“We need to know what the delay is in starting the work? It’s all empty promises, why were we told it would start in May if that wasn’t going to happen?”
The residents of the estate are growing increasingly frustrated at the lack of action, having endured a nightmare of a Christmas in 2010.
“This must be given priority. We don’t want the place to be dug up at Christmas. Last year was an absolute nightmare, with the freezing temperatures. We were the first to lose water and last to get it back,” Mr Tobin told The Avondhu.
Cllr Noel McCarthy agreed that it was unacceptable that work had not yet commenced as promised.
“The council is awaiting a report from county hall advising when the survey will be carried out. I don’t understand what the delay is and I will be putting forward an emergency motion at the July meeting of both the Northern committee and area meeting to expedite this matter,” Cllr McCarthy told The Avondhu.
