Mc Brearty angry at three day notice rule

Cllr Frank Mc Brearty has hit out at council officials after he was told by the mayor that at least three days notice would have to be given for an emergency council meeting.

Cllr Mc Brearty had written to the mayor this morning seeking a meeting to discuss the impact the freezing conditions have been having on people in Donegal. In his response, Mayor Brendan Byrne pointed out he had already sought such a meeting, but was bound by standing orders to give proper notice.

However, Cllr Mc Brearty maintains that in an emeregncy situation, thats's not good enough.
