A meeting of members of the Municipal District of Killarney will take place at 10am this Wednesday morning, June 7th. 2017 in Killarney Town Hall.
There is a list of councillors’ questions from here to Tuesday week so I’ve selected the ones with the most relevance to the area here and its neighbourhood.
The councillors and their questions are in the order of the business of the day – a fact indicated by the numbers on the list.
2. Cllr. Michael Gleeson: That the Council would state if it has the finance necessary to allow for the development of the Tullig Walk, Castleisland and if not that it would indicate its proposal for the achievement of this laudable objective.
4. Cllr. Bobby O’Connell: That Kerry County Council install a light at the Grotto in Cahereens West, Castleisland.
5. Cllr. Bobby O’Connell: To ask Kerry County Council why the drainage works at Kilbannivane in conjunction with Tullig have not been completed.
19. Cllr. Brendan Cronin: What road safety measures can be put in place on the Ballydesmond approach to Scartaglin Village, particularly the Church and junction to National School and Funeral Home, can Kerry County Council erect a solar powered speed limit indicator on this busy road.
24. Cllr. Maura Healy-Rae: To ask Kerry County Council to extend the footpath from the Kerry Co-op Stores on the Tralee Road out to the first roundabout to join onto the Castleisland Bypass. This is necessary for pedestrians and cyclists in the interests of health and safety who use this road frequently.
25. Cllr. Maura Healy-Rae: Following my Motion at the May Full Meeting and where I requested that sections of the Flesk River that are still blocked be cleaned out while the season is open for doing this work, the reply I got stated that an assessment was being carried out by the TII as to what needs to be done and in relation to any development works on the N22. Is this report completed yet and if not, when will it be completed as 22 homes are still in danger of being flooded. Can Kerry County Council explain why they didn’t make an application for funding under the Minor Works Flood Mitigation Scheme?
27. Cllr. Maura Healy-Rae: Further to my previous motion where a commitment was given by Kerry County Council to clear the eyes of Currow bridge in May, when will this work be done and has an application been made for funding under the Minor Works Flood Mitigation Scheme to repair the bank of the river which is threatening to flood Currow Village.
31. Cllr. John Joe Culloty: To call on this Council to explain to groups, and assist them, as they wish to access funding for the purpose of continuing a footpath from the Black Road/Cordal Road Junction to the Community Centre in Castleisland, a distance of 1.85km. Examples of funding sources may be ‘Town & Village Renewal Scheme’ or Clar Funding.
33. Cllr. John Joe Culloty: To call on this Council, to rectify the dangerous channel, which has occurred on the left side of the R577, from Davy Roche’s Cross towards Castleisland.
43. Cllr. Niall Kelleher: St. John’s Graveyard in Castleisland needs to be maintained (list of issues supplied to Area Engineer).
23. Cllr. Maura Healy-Rae: To ask Kerry County Council to address the dangerous lags before Farranfore Village and when will the safety barrier from the village to the Airport be erected?
25. Cllr. Maura Healy-Rae: To ask Kerry County Council, following a commitment from Kerry County Council, when will a school traffic warden be provided to cover the three schools on College Road, Castleisland?
30. Cllr. John Joe Culloty: What are the details regarding maintenance at St. John’s Cemetery in Castleisland?
