City of Wellington to cut ties with Westar for 34 hours

first_imgFollow us on Twitter. Submitted to Sumner Newscow — The City of Wellington received a request from Westar on Tuesday February 9, 2016, for Wellington to cut its tie with them starting Monday, February 22, at 7 a.m., until Tuesday February 23, at 5 p.m.During this time period, Wellington will be required to generate power with the gas turbine, and carry the City’s entire electric load. The gas turbine is ready and fully operational and we do not anticipate any problems. In the unlikely event the gas turbine would trip off­line and could not be restarted, Westar has confirmed with the project manager, that power could be restored to Wellington within a couple of hours.Please call 620­326­3631 with any questions.

END OF AN ERA AS LIMELIGHT TO BE TURNED INTO A SHOP AND OFF-LICENCE

first_imgTHE famous Limelight Club in Glenties is to be turned into a shop and off licence.A planning application has been approved by Donegal County Council and An Bord Pleanála to transform the former club into a retail unit despite an objection.  The derelict club was bought in 2014 at a public auction for €185,000.KLH Trading DCC submitted the application with Donegal County Council in December 2015, and was approved following an inspection carried out by an official from An Bord Pleanála.The inspector granted planning permission under the condition that the development must function as a retail and off-license unit, as per their application. The inspector said that this new unit will “contribute to the vitality and viability of the town of Glenties by supporting the mixed use function of the town centre”.However, this decision was challenged by Harley Newman Planning Consultants on behalf of Darren Melly. The chief argument of that appeal was the fear that the new retail unit will  “impact on the vitality or viability of the town centre”, and that there are already four convenience retail outlets in the town centre.The appellant also feels as though there will be inadequate parking for people using the new retail unit and he has also raised concerns over how accessible the area will be to large delivery lorries.Donegal County Council responded to this appeal by saying that the new retail unit will actually compliment the existing range of retail activity and will not conflict with the County Development Plan.They also added that Glenties main street can “cater for delivery traffic without added or undue traffic disruption” and that the “former use would have necessitated such delivery traffic and no additional traffic issues are likely”. END OF AN ERA AS LIMELIGHT TO BE TURNED INTO A SHOP AND OFF-LICENCE was last modified: July 11th, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Glentieslimelightlast_img read more

BODY SLAMMED OVER €2,500 DONEGAL DRINKS BILL!

first_imgAN education authority in the North is under fire after a series of junkets including one where civil servants racked up a bar bill – for an incredible €2,500.In fact the CCEA – which sets curriculums for the six counties – managed to spend an incredible Stg15,849 during a trip to Letterkenny.And the conference in question lasted for just TWO DAYS. The cash was splashed at a time when hard-pressed principals were begging for extra funding for crumbling classrooms.Details only emerged after a fed-up teacher put in a Freedom of Information request into the North’s government at Stormont.Eighty-eight civil servants enjoyed the Letterkenny conference.On one occasion the CCEA decided to have a conference in Galway – and flew 40 staff by private jet from Belfast! Nice work if you can get it….And the North’s politicians are going mad over the lavish splashing of taxpayer’s cash.Deputy chairman of Stormont’s Education committee and former UUP finance spokesman David McNarry described the CCEA expenditure on “jollies” as “lavish” and “scandalous”.Mr McNarry said: “They have been found out in abusing finances that could have been better used elsewhere and setting a very poor example.“What makes it more scandalous was that the maintenance backlog in schools was known. There was never an abundance of money and such spending was not justifiable, and the question has to be asked how were they able to get away with this?” BODY SLAMMED OVER €2,500 DONEGAL DRINKS BILL! was last modified: May 27th, 2011 by gregShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
