The Municipal District Operations and Rural Development Directorate, was established in 2014 in order to reinforce the role that Municipal Districts would play in serving the citizens of Cork County.
The Municipal Districts provide a wide variety of services which include the provision of School Wardens, operation of Town parking, litter control, street cleaning, burial ground and playground maintenance. The Municipal Districts are also
responsible for the delivery of projects funded through national funding schemes which include the Town and Village Renewal Scheme, Outdoor Recreation Infrastructure Scheme and Clár.
In 2020 the General Municipal Allocation (GMA) fund allowed the continued support of over 600 groups which saw the many projects supported, categorised under Amenity Grants, Capital Grants and Community Contract Schemes.
The directorate is also made up of the Architects Department, Library Service and Arts Service. This report provides a summary of activities in 2020.#
