The future of the local Town Councils in North West region still remains unclear despite an announcement from the Environment Minister last night there will be "less council’s and less councillors".
Phil Hogan was addressing the annual MacGill Summer School in Glenties last night on the topic of local government reform.
He says he is looking to devolve more services to the local citizens but he says at the moment there are too many authorities and there will be a reduction.
Speaking last night, Minister Hogan says with modern communications it is not essential that we have the same structures in place that we had 100 years ago.
Meanwhile, when the Minster was asked directly about the future of the four local town councils in County Donegal -namely Ballyshannon, Bundoran, Buncrana and Letterkenny-the Minister said “you will have to wait for a government decision”
