The Sooner The Boundary Extension Is Implemented, The Better
That's according to the Chief Executive of Cork County Council who says the final implementation of the new boundary will allow them to focus on the rest of the County.
Tim Lucey says they are doing all they can to advance the implementation of the extension including arranging for staff to move from County Hall to City Hall.
The final boundary extension map was presented in February and will be put in place in May or June next year.
Blarney, Ballincollig, Rochestown, Douglas and Glanmire are among some of the areas that will become part of the city.
Speaking to RedFM News, Chief Executive of Cork County Council Tim Lucey says the move will allow the County Council to continue working for the County:
