9. Notice of Motion
9.4 Submitted by Councillor Trevor Golden

“For Meath County Council to establish a lighting fund to provide lighting for estates that are without service and are in the process of being taken in charge or are unfinished (No Developer). Resident Associations can apply for fund by plebiscite.”

Supporting Information subject to the motion being proposed, seconded and considered. The Council holds a central budget to address deficiencies in estates to be taken in charge where insufficient funds are available for the carrying out of such works. On receipt of a valid taking in charge request/plebiscite, the Council initiates the taking in charge process and uses any available funds to carry out the required remedial works including public lighting up to the standard for taking in charge.
