List Of "Community Spirited" Contractors Who Aided In Kildare Snow Clean-Up Being Compiled.

: 03/21/2018 - 16:27

A list of contractors, including "community spirited" volunteers, who provided assistance to Kildare County Council during Storm Emma is being compiled.

At one point, the council was co-ordinating 100 snow plows: 9 of its own, 2 from the Defence Forces, over a dozen it privately contracted, and scores of volunteers, in an effort to clear the county's roads.

Fine Gael Cllr. Fintan Brett asked KCC to compile the list for future reference.

KCC says " This is currently under review with a view to expanding this list and will include the community spirited voluntary assistance given during the recent severe weather event"
