    Emergency Motion No.2

    This City Council welcomes the proposed establishment of the City Recovery Task Force and recognises that the current proposed membership on both gender and political representation levels is unacceptable. The Council agrees that the membership of the Taskforce will include the Lord Mayor, or nominee, and the chairpersons, or their nominees, of the following four Strategic Policy Committees; Arts & Culture, Economic, Climate Action, Environment and Energy, and Enterprise, Traffic and Transport and recommends a 50/50 gender balance.

    We believe that as elected representatives we should have an opportunity to input into the objectives of this new task force. We do not want to delay this taskforce so we call on a final set of objectives to be put before the next council meeting and for consultation to happen before that. We also agree that the Taskforce will report to all members on a weekly basis in the same form as Covid Mobility.

    SCO9: To work with city business associations and agencies to provide for appropriately located, independently accessible sanitary facilities (public toilets, changing areas, showers and wash facilities etc.) for the use of citizens and visitors to the city and accessible to all.  

    We welcome the proposal to introduce temporary toilets as part of coffee dock services across each of the LEA's. However we believe the citizens of Dublin require and deserve a range of both short term and long term solutions to meet a variety of needs and to address the deficit of sanitary facilities in public places across the City. Therefore we ask the CEO to draw up a plan as a matter of urgency and to seek additional national funding in order to deliver these solutions for both  ...  view the full minutes text for item 20.
