Mo­bile re­cy­cling ser­vice con­tin­ues

Bray People - - Council Report -

AS­SUR­ANCES WERE given at a meet­ing of Bray Town Coun­cil last Tues­day night that the mo­bile re­cy­cling ser­vice at St. Peter’s will con­tinue through the month of Septem­ber, funded by Bray Town Coun­cil.

The Town Clerk, Ms. Chris­tine Flood, said that al­ter­na­tive ar­range­ments are in the ’ad­vanced stages’ of be­ing made.

The ser­vice, which takes place two Satur­days a month was pro­vided un­til re­cently by Wick­low County Coun­cil.

’I com­mend Bray Town Coun­cil for tak­ing over the ser­vice. The Town Clerk didn’t want to see peo­ple left in the lurch.’

’The lease we can do is con­tinue the ex­ist­ing ser­vice,’ said Clr. Pat Vance, be­fore the Cathaoir­leach said that there had been some mis­in­for­ma­tion about a pos­si­ble dis­con­tin­u­a­tion of the ser­vice.

’Owen Gal­lagher or­gan­ised a meet­ing about this on Thurs­day night and never in­formed me,’ said lo­cal Cllr. Anne Egan. ’But I was told that it is not to be a po­lit­i­cal meet­ing. It’s funny how some of us were in­formed and oth­ers weren’t.’

Cllr. Michael Lawlor spec­u­lated that ’this won’t be the only bit of mis­in­for­ma­tion put out be­tween now and June.’

’We have spent 15 min­utes dis­cussing some­thing that isn’t fact,’ added the Cathaoir­leach. ’It might be ap­pro­pri­ate for peo­ple to check the facts with coun­cil mem­bers in fu­ture.’
