Motion (2) from the floor

It was proposed by Councillor B. Saul, and seconded by Councillors J. Kennedy, B. Ward, P. Stewart, J. Gildea, L. McGovern and M. Fayne:

 

“This Council agrees that the funding for the redevelopment of Glenalbyn Pool should remain ring-fenced.”

 

 

Motion (3) from the floor

It was proposed Councillor M. Halpin, and seconded by Councillors S. Nic Cormaic, D. Dunne and H. Lewis:

 

“That this Council agrees that the Chief Executive shall redraft the Capital Programme to include €10m funding for Glenalbyn Swimming Pool, and to include the project in the ‘funding available’ list.”

 

 

Motion (4) from the floor

It was proposed by Councillor M. Merrigan, and seconded by Councillors A. Colgan, H. Lewis, D. Dunne, S. O’Brien and D. O’Keeffe:

 

“That, notwithstanding the request by the Executive to ‘note’ this Agenda item, given the necessity to consider this important issue in full in the interests of our constituents, it is wholly inappropriate to restrict the Elected Members to contributions of no more than sixty seconds each as per Standing Order 11 (2) and therefore, in accordance with Standing Order 20 (e), it is proposed that Standing Order 11 (2) (‘Sixty Seconds Rule’), should not be applied to this Agenda Item in order to allow for its fullest consideration by this Council.”

 

 

Motion (7) from the floor

Motion (8) from the floor

It was proposed by Councillor S. Nic Cormaic, and seconded by Councillor C. Curran:

 

“Given that at least €68,000 has already been spent on reports relating to Glenalbyn Swimming Pool, this Council agrees to protect the funding raised by the community.

To that end, this Council agrees that preliminary costs, such as the potential feasibility and legal fees associated with redevelopments of the pool, should be met from the Council’s own funds until the design phase has been reached.”

 

 

Motion (9) from the floor

It was proposed by Councillor S. Nic Cormaic, and seconded by Councillor C. Curran:

 

“That this Council agrees that the funding classification of Glenalbyn Swimming Pool in the capital program should not be changed and remain as is.”
