September Motions to Councils & Replies

Posted on September 26, 2012 at 5:35 AM

Cllr.Davitt: To call on Mullingar Town Council to write to the Department of Environment to consider changing the existing postal voting regime as due to forced immigration, all Irish nationals working abroad should be entitled to a vote in the next Election.




A letter can issue to the Department of Environment in this regard, if the Members are in agreement.



Cllr.Davitt: That Westmeath County Council would consider a pilot project whereby it would acquire a “ready to go” site from NAMA and look to tender for a public private partnership to have ten houses built and guarantee a rent back over twenty years.




Westmeath County Council would consider such a project subject to normal procurement rules. Any resultant viable project would be subject to the approval of the Department of the Environment, Heritage and Local Government, under its long term leasing initiative. It is the County Council’s intention to advertise for proposals under this initiative in the New Year.
