One of the initiatives that have emerged from the Social Working Group is the formation of the Community Safety Taskforce. This group compromises of community representatives and statutory and voluntary agencies that are involved in delivery of services to the area.
These services would try and address residents concerns regarding policing, emergency services, and estate management issues. The idea would be to bring these agencies together to look at issues in the area such as illegal parking and traffic control. In addition it would look at how the private sector delivers services into the area that would impact on the area in a negative way such as litter /waste, and anti social behaviour.
The purpose of the group is to make the area a safer more pleasant place to live in.
If you have any suggestions the group would be delighted to hear from you and can be contacted through the Cranmore Community Co-operative office at 18 Mc Neil Drive Cranmore or on 0879728717
One of the issues that the Community Safety Task Force is addressing is that of responsible dog ownership.
Connell Collery Veterinary Inspector with Sligo Borough Council who is a member of the Task Force offers the following advice on what dogs are not allowed in our estate which are pictured below.
He further advises that people who do have these breeds must keep them on a lead and muzzle at all times when in a public place.
The dog warden can be contacted at 9163320 if you want to surrender a dog or have a problem you wish to discuss with him.
All dogs must have a current license which can be obtained from any post office for €12.70.
There is a €150 fine for not cleaning up after your dog.
