    Asked a few queries about the Salthill situation but have got nothing back. Anyone else?

    Which city councillors did you send queries to?

    One Galway FG councilor and others to various other representative & public bodies. As an election is due it is a good time to raise it with TDs at the doorstep.

    No argument there but pathways shouldn't be hazardous with cracks and holes especially in a very busy area.

    In the context of foothpath for pedestrians...

    Crack in the foot path is not hazardous, broken glass/bottles is. A large pothole can be if person has zero brain cells however such people should have a carer looking after them or a guide dog.

    If people are looking for pristine services then tell council and government to increase that activity, in turn additional taxes will be done in next budget. It's an election year afterall.

    Not looking for pristine just serviceable no obvious cracks a person can trip over. Theperson was able bodied and not elderly! Obvious from this thread that they, the GCC, have been told many times.

    Salthill seems to be a bit of a black hole for representation, the fg cllr is new to the job and reasonably new to the area, but the last few i've dealt with have been casual about things salthill related, that aren't their pet projects.

    In general I've found Niall McNeilus to be at least responsive as was the sf guy based in connemara

    Sadly you are right no one seems interested and it shows in the place. A pity as it wouldn't take that much to tidy it up. Maybe like the man in Cavan and their potholes if someone sprayed dayglo paint on the broken/hazadrous parts notice might be taken?

    Looks like more damage to Salthill tonight.

    How is Salthill today after the storm?

    Spoke with canvassers one said that their was money available from a tourism fund? Said he would raise it with contacts in the council?

    Any improvement action before the election?


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,736 ✭✭✭saabsaab


    That would be a no!
