FF/GREEN CITY COUNCIL CUTBACKS THREATEN ESSENTIAL SERVICES

“The threat of further savage Fianna Fail/Green cutbacks to Local Authority budgets poses a serious danger to the maintenance of essential services for local residents in Dublin North East”, said Dublin North East Labour T.D. Tommy Broughan.

Deputy Broughan has now asked the Dublin City Manager John Tierney to ensure that finance is allocated in the 2011 City Budget for critical and necessary maintenance, public lighting repairs, street cleansing and local green space maintenance for communities in Dublin North East.

“I accept that all Local Authorities are under enormous financial pressure given the ongoing attack on their finances by the Fianna Fail and Green government”, said Deputy Broughan.

“But core services for local residents must be maintained. It is clearly a key responsibility of Dublin City Council that basic public lighting, cleansing and environmental services are upheld.”

Deputy Broughan also asked the City Manager to ensure that where it is appropriate, Dublin City Council liaises with and continues to support local environmental and cleansing projects.

In terms of the overall 2011 City Budget, Ms. Kathy Quinn, Head of Finance has told Deputy Broughan that “the draft budget is currently being prepared and all endeavours have been made to achieve minimal impact in service reduction in the context of reduced resource availability.”

Deputy Broughan has also been informed by Manager Sean Purcell of DCC’s Environmental Department that a “budget of €21.9 million for street cleaning is included in the 2011 Draft Estimates. This is adequate to provide a similar level of street cleaning service as 2010. Waste management services will continue to liaise with and support local environmental and cleansing projects by providing necessary equipment and fleet for cleanup activities by voluntary groups having regard to available resources.”

Both the Parks Department and the Public Lighting Department have also responded to Deputy Broughan and reported that “there will be adequate provision in the draft Parks Estimates to maintain all the city’s green spaces to a good standard and to support any local community initiatives in this regard” and that the “budget allocation in the draft estimates for public lighting maintenance for 2011 is adequate to provide a similar level of service as was provided in 2010.”
