Councillors in Kilkenny have voted to raise the the local authority’s overdraft limit by €7m.
A restricted monthly meeting went ahead today with just seven councillors present – that’s the minimum number needed by law.
Physical distancing was in effect for the unusual monthly meeting.
Caothaoirleach Peter Chap Cleere says they just ‘went through the motions’ needed to get things done and he’s been thanking his fellow members for their co-operation.
Kilkenny County Council will now need to apply to its bank to have the overdraft limit raised in case it’s needed to keep local authority operations running.
