(Current Motions)

15. Councillor Lawlor
      That an update on the current budgetary position of the council be given to the members
      for the July meeting and what are the implications of this for the budget 2011.

16. Councillor Murphy
      We seek a report on the policies surrounding bonds to include how the amounts are 
       arrived at, why cash bonds as opposed to insurance bonds are sought.  How decisions
      are arrived at to return the bonds either in full or in increments, who signs off on those 
      decisions.   In the event of bonds being returned prior to an estate being taken in charge 
      what safeguards are in place to ensure outstanding works are all completed. 

17. Councillor S Doyle
      That the transportation section of Kildare County Council, produce maps identifying
     disability access routes throughout our towns as part of current or forthcoming traffic management plans. These mapped routes should then   be made available on the council website and hard copies displayed in key locations in each town, such as doctors surgery, relevant service   providers, public spaces etc.

18. Councillors  O’Donnell and Councillor  S Doyle
      That the Local Area Plan for Kildare town be advanced immediately with a view to publishing draft in early September 2010, and that this    work be prioritised above any non statutory plans for the town.

19. Councillor McGinley
       That this Council restores the agreed policy when it comes to putting people on the social housing waiting list. It seems as if the Executive     have adopted a "new policy"  whereby applicants are told that their application has been refused as the council has
 deemed that they are adequately housed.


20. Councillor McGinley
 That the NRA be asked again for their proposals for the introduction of noise abatement
 measures on the M4, specifically, when will they be laying a low noise surface from
 Leixlip Bridge to the Meath border and the erection of noise barriers where there are
 houses at Leixlip, Maynooth and Kilcock

21. Councillors  Murphy, McEvoy, Kennedy and Moore
That Kildare County Council investigate existing waste-collection licences or bye-law opportunities for night-time noise limits on waste-collection services in residential areas.

22. Councillor Scully
That this council would write to the British Ambassador for Ireland to officially invite her
Majesty Queen Elizabeth to visit County Kildare during her proposed official visit to
Ireland in 2011.

23. Councillor Moore
      That Kildare County Council, on behalf of the people of Kildare, would welcome Queen
       Elizabeth of Great Britain, should she consider a visit to Ireland and County Kildare.

24. Councillor Miley
 In light of Kildare County Council having to add a  VAT charge to grave opening, that the
 current price would remain and the VAT charge be incorporated.

25. Councillor Heydon
 That Kildare County Council examine ways in which, working in conjunction with state
 agencies, it can provide business incubation centres and equivalent support services, for
 entrepreneurs and start up businesses, in parts of the county that have increasing levels
 of unemployment but where such services are presently lacking.
