Morgan calls on council to review practice in relation to how it deals with those on housing list
Local election candidate and community activist Oliver Morgan has called on Louth County Council to review its practices in relation to how they deal with people on the housing waiting list.
The former Dundalk Town Councillor says he has received complaints from people about how they were treated with some feeling “degraded”.
The Meadow Grove man has now called on the local authority to look at the matter and asked them to ensure that meetings which involve sensitive subjects being discussed are held in private.
He said: “I have received representations about how badly housing applicants on Louth County Council are being treated by certain officials, making them air their personal and health issues in public.
“One person in particular was left feeling degraded and in tears following their ‘public meeting’ with an official. This is unacceptable and members of the public should be afforded the dignity and privacy that they deserve when dealing with Louth County Council.
“I call on Louth County Council to review this practice and treat their applicants/tenants with a bit of dignity and respect, at least,” he said.
