Recruitment ban lifted for Traffic Wardens

Cllr Regina Doherty, Chairperson of Meaths Joint Policing Committee has today welcomed the lifting of the recruitment ban to allow Meath County Council replace the recent loss of 3 Traffic Wardens to our South Meath Schools.

“ With the recruitment ban in place and the loss of staff members over the past year we were left in a position where 3 of our schools in Dunshaughlin and Rathregan were left with no Traffic wardens to assist children and parents alike crossing the roads.  The lifting of this ban allows us to recruits new people to these positions and return to a safe environment for our school going children.”

“ I would like to pay particular tribute to the MCC outdoor staff who assisted in filling in for these roles over the past year, it is a credit to them for their commitment to their jobs and to the people of South Meath.”

Safety at Meaths schools is particularly relevant to the JPC as one of the objectives of our work plan for 2010  is to improve safety outside Meaths schools and Traffic Wardens are paramount to this.”
