Plenary Meeting – 12th February 2015

The second Plenary Meeting of Sligo Public Participation Network took place on                      12th February in the Sligo Park Hotel.

Community representatives from all over County Sligo came together to elect                       representatives to a number of important local policy making committees.  The hotly       contested elections for Sligo County Council’s Strategic Policy Committees and Sligo     Local Community Development Committee saw 46 candidates battle it out for 12 seats in a closely fought competition.  The high level of local interest in the new structures was reflected in the high number and calibre of the nominees, according to event organisers.
