A long sought after report outlining all the properties and lands in the ownership of Mayo County Council is to be available to councillors by March next (2020), but should be available right now, according to Fine Gael councillor Donna Sheridan.
The time frame for the delivery of the report was confirmed to the cllr at this week’s monthly meeting of Mayo County Council.
She has welcomed the response but insists it should already be compiled and accessible.
The CEO of the authority Peter Hynes twice refused to provide such a report to the councillor earlier this year, but eventually conceded that it would be made available, but explained that it would take time and resources to compile.
Cllr Sheridan wants information on the state of the properties owned by the authority, and any plans for renovations or sales of properties. She argues this information should be readily available to elected councillors before approving an annual budget.
She spoke to Midwest News about the timeframe now given for the completion of the report she insisted on securing
