Estates to be taken in charge
Three estates within the town district will be taken in charge by the council.
An Planan in Bridgetown, Kilrane Manor in Kilmore and Echo Beach in Kilmore Quay will all be taken in charge following agreement from the members of Wexford Municipal District.
Cllr George Lawlor wondered about the progress being made regards taking Summerhill Heights in charge while Cllr Fergie Kehoe wondered about the Links in Rosslare saying the manner had been going on for a long time.
He said he had also been contacted by the residents of Pineridge in Summerhill about getting that estate taken in charge.
John's Road trees
The removal of trees along John's Road caused Cllr Fergie Kehoe cause for concern last week.
Cllr Kehoe said 'over the past number of years dangerous trees have bee removed along John's Road. I call on the Borough Engineer to have new trees planted to replace these, at the earliest opportunity'.
The motion was seconded by Cllr George Lawlor.
Sympathy was extended to the family of the Buncrana drowning victims at last week's meeting of Wexford Borough Municipal meeting.
Cllr Jim Moore said that with Wexford being a coastal area they can appreciate the devastation being experienced by all those affected.
Thomas Clarke Place
Works may be carried out at Thomas Clarke Place to improve the road surface.
A unanimously supported notice of motion laid down by Cllr Davy Hynes called on the council to carry out proper resurfacing works in the cul de sac because 'the patching that is carried out is not sufficient for this busy area'.
Main Street gullies
Tests have been carried out on the gullies on the Main Street to see if they can be made more slip resistant.
Engineer Craig Innes in response to a query from Cllr George Lawlor said that some tests had been carried out and the final results were still outstanding. 'We have to wait on these results to see if the work is worth doing', said Mr Innes.
