Monaghan County Council Update on Level 5 Service Provision
The Government has announced that, from midnight on Wednesday 21 October, all of Ireland will be placed on Level 5 of the Plan for Living with COVID, for a period of 6 weeks, until Wednesday 2 December. This action is based on current public health advice and the deteriorating situation with the disease across the country.
Monaghan County Council’s Management Team have reviewed the implications of the Level 5 restrictions on the delivery of Council services and operations.
As providers of essential public services all our offices, except the Motor Tax Office, will remain open during the Level 5 restrictions. An appointments-only service will be in operation in the Motor Tax Office.
All County Council repair, maintenance and construction services will remain operational.
