Westport based Fine Gael councillor Peter Flynn says he’s frustrated with the level of engagement between elected councillors and the CEO of Mayo County Council Peter Hynes in terms of strategic planning for the county.
He raised the issue at the 2020 budget meeting of the local authority earlier this week.
Councillor Flynn claims that since the new council came into operation last May, the CEO has not engaged directly with elected councillors to get their individual views on the way forward for the county.
He says he has no problem with the day to day running of the authority as it operates, but believes that there needs to be more engagement with elected councillors on the bigger picture, -where and how Mayo will develop over the term of this council – over the next 5 years.
Councillor Flynn has been speaking to Midwest News about the concerns he raised
