(Current Motions)

19. Councillor O’Donnell

That Kildare County Council congratulates John and Edward Grimes on their excellent performance at this years Eurovision Song Contest.

20. Councillors McEvoy, Kennedy, Moore and Larkin

That Kildare County Council explore the possibility to discount the development levy cost for properties where water harvesting and water conservation measures (use of rainwater, greywater re-use, dual-supply plumbing etc) are designed to minimise intake from the public water network. Such a scheme would stimulate innovative solutions to help offset shortages forecast for the regional water supplies.

21. Councillors McEvoy, Kennedy, Moore and Larkin

That Kildare County Council consider opportunities to broaden driver road-safety awareness of caution required with horses and riders on public roads. Given the County's association with the equine sectors, it may be better placed to research and help deliver a message to reduce risk to both riders and vehicle users.

22. Councillor S. Doyle

That the Council examine the feasibility of delivering certain out sourced services through community based enterprise schemes, for example when reviewing the provision of the pay parking contracts provide for a pilot scheme to determine the feasibility of delivering the service through a community based enterprise scheme that might link in with the Leader administered Tus programme. This might be an appropriate partnership action of the County Development Board.
