Council merger to slash jobs

THE management structure for the new Limerick local authority will cut the number of senior staff posts by 50pc.

Limerick city and county councils will be merged into a single authority in mid-2014.

The decision, announced last year, aims to save €15m per annum in local government budgets.

Environment Minister Phil Hogan announced the publication of the plan yesterday.

It confirms that the new local authority will be called Limerick City and County Council. The merger is expected to cut overall staffing by 20pc.
