£130,000 Backup electricity generator for Council HQ?

1 Mins read

At Tuesday’s environmental services committee, councillors were asked to consider a recommendation to purchase a backup electricity generator for Council HQ in Cloonavin.

“It is recommended that approval be given to progress the purchase of standby generators by developing detailed design and specification necessary for the procurement process.” Cost, up to £130,000″.

Ulster Unionist Cllr Darryl Wilson asked staff if they would acquire prices for “used equipment” which would considerably reduce cost, before any decision be taken. DUP Cllr Ian Stevenson proposed also acquiring prices for a second generator for Ballymoney.

The Ulster Unionist grouping argued against buying two generators, with Cllr Holmes stating that emergency cover was only required for HQ, not for every council administrative centre in the Borough, also highlighting the additional cost to the ratepayers. The DUPs proposal was passed with support from SF, while the Ulster Unionists, Russel Watton and the SDLP were unsuccessful in voting against the proposal.

The item/recommendation is still to be ratified at full Council.
