Min Ryan Park jobs ap­peal

Wexford People - - NEWS -

THE con­trac­tor for works on the Min Ryan pub­lic park in Wex­ford is set to be an­nounced, but con­cern was ex­pressed that a Wex­ford com­pany was passed over for the ma­jor job.

Cllr Ger Carthy sought a break­down of the ten­ders for the park.

He said: ‘There are sub­stan­tial sums go­ing out,’ adding that it would have been great if lo­cal men and women could have been em­ployed on the project.

Di­rec­tor of Ser­vices Ed­die Taaffe said: ‘Con­trac­tors were as­s­esed on the ba­sis of the price and suit­abil­ity fol­low­ing na­tional guide­lines. It’s al­ways a bal­ance be­tween get­ting the most suit­able con­trac­tor based on ex­pe­ri­ence and price and get­ting lo­cal con­trac­tors. We have to en­sure the con­trac­tor has the com­pe­tency to com­plete the job at the level we want.’
