An attempt to shake up the structure of the Audit committee on Mayo county council failed to get enough support from councillors, at this week’s monthly meeting of Mayo County Council.

Fine Gael councillor Peter Flynn had sought to make a number of changes to the make-up and operation of the committee, as he sees the present structure as outdated, costly and  lacking in gender balance.

But the 5 member Audit Committee of Mayo County Council, the group that oversees the local authority’s finances remains as it was,  made up of 3 external members and 2 elected councillors, all five receiving the maximum remuneration for their input, despite the strain at present on the local authority’s finances.

Councillor Flynn’s motion to change the structure was lost on a vote of 16 against changes and 14 for the proposed shake-up.
