Cllr. John Naughten has welcomed the taking in charge of the River Village estate in Monksland by Roscommon County Council.
“The decision was taken at a recent meeting of Athlone Municipal District and I welcome the fact that this estate has now been taken in charge. It is something that residents had been seeking for some time,” stated Cllr. Naughten.
Cllr. Naughten added: “Irish Water will now be taking responsibility for the water supply and the sewerage while Roscommon County Council will be taking responsibility for the roads, footpaths and lighting in the estate.
“I also expect that a number of other estates in the Monksland area will be taken in charge over the coming months”.
