In this case a Commissioner would have been appointed by the Minister for the Environment and local councillors would no longer be in a job.Fine Gael and Labour (backed by four independents), Fianna Fail and Sinn Fein (supported by independent Cllr. John Campbell) all brought forward proposals to make budget savings but they couldn’t agree.Eventually it went to a vote. Sinn Fein’s proposals were beaten by 20 votes to five, while Fianna Fail’s proposals were beaten by 16 votes to nine. Fine Gael’s proposals were beaten 14 votes to 11.This meant that nobody’s proposals were passed.Councillors were then back to square one, and in the exact same position they were in at 10am on December 19.But finally at 310am some progress began to be made, as the Fine Gael and Fianna Fail whips finally met in private to discuss their differences.By 4 o clock this morning both parties proposals were only 33k apart, and they eventually came to agreement just after 5am to pass the budget.And the County Manager Seamus Neely then agreed that the broad content of both parties proposals could be accommodated.Fianna Fail Party Whip Ciaran Brogan said his party were pleased with the budget which was eventually passed, but he said lessons must be learnt…[podcast]http://www.highlandradio.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/brograw.mp3[/podcast]And Fine Gael Party Whip Barry O Neill said his party where also very happy with the budget, and Cllr O Neill defended the lenght of the meeting, saying there was a very real chance that the council could have folded….[podcast]http://www.highlandradio.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/oneillraw.mp3[/podcast] Google+ By News Highland – January 8, 2013 Twitter Man arrested on suspicion of drugs and criminal property offences in Derry Main Evening News, Sport and Obituaries Tuesday May 25th Pinterest Further drop in people receiving PUP in Donegal 75 positive cases of Covid confirmed in North Gardai continue to investigate Kilmacrennan firelast_img read more
