My motion at today’s Full Council Meeting, ‘ That the council clarify the role and function of the County and City Management Association including its role in relation to local authorities, re legislation, the number of meetings attended by the Chief Executive since 2015, the agenda of the meetings, duration of meetings, travel and subsistence and any state boards the Chief Executive is appointed to from here.’
Here is the report issued by: Mr T McDonnell, Director of Housing and Corporate Services : The County and City Management Association (CCMA) is the “representative voice” of the local government management network. Its members are Chief Executives of the County and City Councils and the Assistant Chief Executives of Dublin City Council. It operates through a number of established committees each of which is concerned with a specific policy area as follows:
Community and Culture;
Climate Change and Emergency Planning;
Housing and Building;
Land Use and Transportation;
Each Committee, which is made up of County and City Council Chief Executives and Directors of Service / Heads of Finance, interfaces with senior management of the Department of the Housing, Planning, Community and Local Government (DHPCLG) and other relevant Departments and organisations. No travel and subsistence is paid and no appointments to state boards are made by the association.
