COMMUNITY COUNCIL A.G.M. DEFERRED FOLLOWING FINANCIAL QUERIES
The annual general meeting of Mitchelstown Community Council last week heard questions from the floor regarding transactions from a bank account held by the group.
The meeting, held on Thursday, April 30, concluded without electing a new board as questions were raised regarding the activity on a second community council account, the existence of which was apparently unknown to many members, including some on the council executive.
The account, which it is believed may be held at a financial institution in Fermoy, had payments made to it that were questioned at the meeting.
A member of Mitchelstown Community Council told The Avondhu, “The council needs to deal with this now. Running from it won’t solve the problem and if needs be we should call in Muintir na Tire, the governing body of community councils, to investigate and rule on this alleged irregularity.”
The AGM of Mitchelstown Community Council will now take place next week as members asked that all details of the account in question be given to the treasurer so that a full report on the council’s finances can be presented at the reconvened meeting.
