The Sligo Champion - - NEWS -

THE Cathaoir­leach of Sligo County Coun­cil Coun­cil­lor Sea­mus Kil­gan­non has wel­comed the an­nounce­ment by the De­part­ment of Ru­ral and Com­mu­nity De­vel­op­ment that fund­ing will be al­lo­cated for Lo­cal Im­prove­ment Schemes.

The De­part­ment has asked lo­cal Au­thor­i­ties to sub­mit their pro­pos­als by 14th Septem­ber, out­lin­ing what schemes can be de­liv­ered in the cur­rent year.

The Cathaoir­leach said: ‘ I wel­come the fact that the up­turn in the econ­omy has al­lowed the restora­tion of fund­ing for LIS schemes.

“While the time­frame is fairly chal­leng­ing to al­low the Coun­cil com­pile the fund­ing pro­posal, ob­tain ap­proval and then carry out the works, I think this is good news for Sligo and I am anx­ious that we will avail of this op­por­tu­nity to carry out much needed works.

“I have been call­ing for the restora­tion of ad­e­quate LIS fund­ing since I was re- elected Sligo County Coun­cil, and we will be work­ing with the Roads/ Engi­neer­ing staff to pre­pare and sub­mit a de­tailed pro­posal.’
