Department of Housing, Planning, and Local Government
107. To ask the Minister for Housing, Planning, and Local Government the status of plans to appoint a permanent CEO of Galway County Council; the status of the recruitment campaign; when he expects the new CEO to be in position; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [11952/22]
My Department has advised the Public Appointments Service (PAS) of the requirement to hold a recruitment competition for a replacement permanent Chief Executive in Galway County Council and it is now a matter for PAS to put the necessary recruitment arrangements in place.
There is a requirement for all Chief Executive posts for Local Authorities to be advertised openly on the www.publicjobs.iewebsite operated by PAS and the timing of the advertising of this post is a matter for PAS.
