The controversial decision last Friday by council management in Mayo to discontinue the services of a street sweeper and persons to empty litter bins on the streets in towns located in the Ballina Municipal District has now been reversed and the service will be restored from this weekend.

There was outrage in Ballina last weekend when it emerged that the clean-up services had ceased due to the overrun of the Ballina Municipal District budget for 2018, and would resume sometime in the new year.

Local Fianna Fail councillor Annie Mae Reape told Midwest News today that the decision to cut the service was simply not acceptable and she and other councillors  insisted that the service is restored and will now continue from this weekend.

The councillor told yesterday's monthly meeting of Ballina Municipal District that anything less would be unfair to Tidy Town committees, to the the public and to tourists.
