The monthly Galway City Council meeting has been moved to the Galmont Hotel following a Coronavirus risk assessment of the council chambers.
The risk assessment is in relation to the current guidance regarding Coronavirus. The meeting that was due to take place in the regular location of City Hall is expected to proceed at 3pm this afternoon.
The assessment comes after 21 cases of Coronavirus were confirmed in Ireland, 2 of which were confirmed on Sunday.
Galway City Council meetings take place in City Hall on the second Monday of every month.
Items on the agenda include a report on the St. Patrick’s Day Parade event license, fund raising for Galway Simon housing and the Corporate Plan for 2019-2024.
Other items on the agenda include a draft tourism strategy for the next five years, a report on Cappagh Park and a call for proposals under the Urban and Regional Development Fund.
