'Progress' talks over Chapel Farm
FINGAL County Council expects to 'progress' talks with a new receiver on Chapel Farm in Lusk in the next few weeks, with a view to taking the estate in charge.
Asked for an update by Cllr. Ken Farrell (Lab) on the taking in charge process, the council reported: 'The council is in discussions with the receiver in relation to the reinstatement of arrangements agreed with his predecessor last year.
'We expect progress on these negotiations in the coming weeks and will brief the committee accordingly.'
NAME FOR ROUNDABOUT
FINGAL County Council is to write to the National Roads Authority with a suggestion to call the roundabout exiting on Hearse Road, the 'Donabate Roundabout'.
The request comes on behalf of local residents, from Cllr. Gerry McGuire (Lab).
The council said the naming of the roundabout was a matter for the National Roads Authority but it would write to the NTA with the councillor's suggestion.
REPAIRS to a damaged footpath at Kelly's Garage on the Dublin Road in Lusk will be included in the council's area engineer's programme of works.
The work was requested by Cllr. Ken Farrell (Lab) who asked the council to bring the path 'up to standard'.
The council's operations department said: 'Any repairs that are considered necessary to the footpath referred to in the question will be included in the area engineer's maintenance programme.'
PROPERTY TAX COMPLIANCE
Latest figures for payment of the Local Property Tax in Fingal reveals there was a 94.6 per cent compliance with the new tax in the county.
That amounted to some €18.4 million in revenue from the tax, according to county council figures released in response to a question from Cllr. Darragh Butler (FF).
