A county councillor has hit out at some water contractors in the Finn Valley after complaints by residents.

Sinn Féin councillor Liam Doherty, has today described the alleged actions of certain water contractors installing meters throughout the Finn Valley as

being both ‘unacceptable’ and ‘utterly wrong’.

Cllr. Doherty said he has received complaints from residents in a housing estate in Ballybofey who claim they have had their driveways blocked for almost three days as contractors erected barriers around their homes to install water meters.

“I was contacted by a number of residents from the Glenpatrick Park estate in

Ballybofey after they became concerned that the work being carried out by the

contractors was causing a huge burden and disturbance to them and their families,” he said.

“Residents contacted me on Monday when the workers originally arrived at the site

to begin fitting the meters only to then erect a number of barriers to the front of a number of properties which were to remain there for the best part of three days – this is unacceptable.”
