Coun­cil to build new yard

Bray People - - Report Council -

NEWS that a new Wick­low County Coun­cil de­pot is to be con­structed in Grey­stones has been wel­comed by mem­bers who say that the fa­cil­ity will be a pos­i­tive de­vel­op­ment for both staff and the coun­cil.

Cllr. Kath­leen Kelle­her com­mented that the land on which the cur­rent de­pot is sit­u­ated will be a very valu­able as­set to the coun­cil once it is freed up by the move.

‘This will be an in­vest­ment in work­ers who will en­joy bet­ter fa­cil­i­ties. I hope it is one they will be happy to move to. I look for­ward to see­ing it up and run­ning,’ she said.

Cllr. Pat Casey was also pos­i­tive in his praise for the project but ques­tioned how cer­tain it is that the build will go ahead due to cur­rent fi­nan­cial cut­backs.

‘ Can we be as­sured that this won’t be put on the long fin­ger? We need to know there is money there as it is a very worth­while in­vest­ment.’

Such as­sur­ances were not forth­com­ing from County Man­ager Ed­die Sheehy how­ever who said that more will be known af­ter the forth­com­ing na­tional bud­get as the fi­nan­cial po­si­tion within the coun­cil is pre­car­i­ous at present.
