New Council ‘goes live’ on 26th May

The newly amalgamated Waterford (city and county) Council will “go live” on Monday, 26th May 2014, local authority Manager Michael Walsh has confirmed.

At the City Council’s February meeting, Mr Walsh welcomed the newly appointed management team, made up of existing County officials Brian White (Planning and Corporate Affairs), Paul Daly (Roads and Emergency Services) and Michael Quinn (Housing and Community Affairs); and current City Directors John Murphy (Finance), Fergus Galvin (Water and Environment) and Lar Power (Economic Development).

The Manager confirmed that the new management team were already working across both local authorities, with the transition of the remaining Council staff likely to happen in April and May, ahead of the Local Elections on 23rd May.
