Deputy Michael Ring had queried when the position of Chief Executive of Mayo Council will be filled following the retirement of Mr. Peter Hynes.
Deputy Michael Ring says he was informed that the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage received a staffing sanction request for the post of Chief Executive of Mayo County Council on the 17th September last. A letter of approval sanctioning this post issued the following day.
The deputy argues that the role of the Chief Executive is a very important role and even more so now, as Mayo face the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. “It is vital that the role of Chief Executive of Mayo County Council is filled on a permanent basis within a reasonable timeframe”
