Please be advised of the following meeting that has been arranged in relation to flooding issues this WEDNESDAY, JULY 8TH at 7.00pm in LE CHÉILE, DONNYCARNEY.At this week’s meeting of City Council, I successfully passed a motion demanding that the Department of the Environment fund the €4million upgrading of the River Wad culvert:
'This Council demands that the Department of the Environment immediately provide the necessary funding to correct identified flaws in the city's flood prevention system, particularly in the North Inner City and in Clanmoyle Road, Donnycarney as previously outlined by City Council Engineers Reports (ref Report to North Central Area Committee march '09) and OPW inspections. '
The motion was ammended by the Labour Group to add:
'and to seek a meeting with the Minister for the Environment.'
The matter will also be raised by Party Leader Eamon Gilmore in the Dáil this week.
