The handover is due to take place in January but there is concern among Council members over the implications of the handover.Councillor Doherty proposed that Donegal County Council delay the handover until the Council is given an in-depth report of the details and implications of the handover. Speaking today he said “I have huge concernsnover this handover and the timing of it. I believe that a lot of questions need to be answered before we can give control of our water services to Irish Water.His motion was seconded by his party Colleague Cllr Gallagher.She said “The establishment of Uisce Eireann has one sole purpose, and that is to charge citizens for a basic resource, and to ensure families and individuals will have another bill come through their door in the near future.“The water infrastructure in the county is priceless and belongs to the people of Donegal, after the first of January this priceless asset will be handed over to Bord Gais which will most probably be sold off in the near future. “I welcome Cllr Dohertys amendment to this motion, and hope that the executive of Donegal County Council adhere to the policy adopted today. To charge citizens for a basic service to ensure survival is simply wrong.”Irish Water is the new body created by the State to takeover the provision and retention of water services in the State.There has been opposition to the body since its inception with concerns raised over the security of jobs and the quality of service which will be received once the handover takes place.   DONEGAL SINN FEIN CALL FOR HOLD-OFF ON HANDOVER OF WATER SERVICES was last modified: December 9th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Irish WaterSinn Feinlast_img read more
