For the last 15 years a river flowing down through the town of Wicklow is been polluted By a 24 “drain pipe and raw sewage is pumping out of this pipe on a regular bases Some local developer took some short cuts and the local council don’t want to know!
In spite of writing to the local council over the last 15 years and to minster Gormley ,We the residents still suffer the consequences of this pollution
So much for the green party, s protection of the environment I suppose there are only active when the TV cameras are rolling and they can get some Air Time .
We demand action be taken to stop this pollution and the perpetrators be made clean up their mess
At the last local elections in Wicklow some of the now elected councillors promised to do something about the derelict cinema building
I suppose those promises were just that, empty promises that were easily forgotten along with all the rest of them!
That’s what you get when you don’t vote for change!
It is quite shocking to hear we had two cinemas in Wicklow Town in the 1920,s
With 2,650 thousand people out of work in the town why it is not possible to re-open this building as a centre for the self help groups for the unemployed and as a centre of community activity
More and more shops are closing and new ones are not lasting because of the unrealistic overheads
Water charges, rates, rents and insurances
I suggest the county counsel should introduce a municipal insurance
An insurance that all the retailers and trades people pay into and the premium should be paid directly to Lloyds of London cutting out the middle man
This insurance should include public labiality and would reduce the costs enormously
Why the hell not???
This kind of innovative thinking is required if we want to get the town back on its feet again
