New jarvey bye-laws will be drafted by members of the Killarney Municipal District in 2020.
Councillor Maura Healy-Rae raised the issue at the recent Killarney MD meeting.
She asked Kerry County Council if and when the bye-laws can be amended to allow jarvey licence holders transfer their license to a family member.
In response, the council says the MD intends to look at new Jarvey bye-laws in 2020.
The council added that in the drafting the new bye-laws, the municipal district would have to be cognisant of European Law with regard to the issuing of licences.
