Time to axe councils?
THE government is seeking the public's opinion on its plans to abolish all town councils, including those in Tralee, Killarney and Listowel, when their current term ends in 2014.
Environment Minister Phil Hogan has established a committee to review electoral areas and they are to report back to him before May 31, 2013.
Submissions on the proposed changes can be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to Secretary, Local Electoral Area Boundary committee, Room 1.77, Custom House, Dublin. The deadline for all submissions is January 25, 2013.
