County Council meeting to discuss recommended merger with city council

Galway Bay Fm newsroom:-A special meeting of Galway County Council will take place tomorrow (mon dec 5) to discuss a controversial report which recommends the merging of the city and county councils.
A report published by The Galway Local Government Committee in October recommends the creation of a single ‘Greater Galway Authority’.
The committee was established by then Minister for Local Government Alan Kelly in January 2015 to carry out a review of existing arrangements.
However, the subsequent recommendation of unification into a single body has prompted a severe backlash from many city and county councillors.
A special meeting to discuss the situation will take place at County Hall at 2 tomorrow afternoon
