A Kerry County Councillor is calling on senior management in Irish Water to come before the councillors.
Cllr Mikey Sheehy raised the matter at the recent meeting of Kerry County Council.
Cllr Sheehy's call followed complaints by other councillors about the state of sewerage schemes in a number of areas in Kerry.
Cllr Sheehy first asked what opportunity the elected members of the council would get to speak directly to Irish Water to discuss potential upgrading and capital projects in Kerry.
This followed complaints by Cllr Johnny Healy-Rae and Cllr Michael Cahill about the state of sewerage schemes in Kenmare and Glenbeigh respectively.
Kerry County Council replied to this motion that Irish Water facilitates meetings with councillors on a quarterly basis, and that further engagement can be requested.
The Fianna Fáil Councillor declared he was unhappy with this response, as discussions must take place before development begins.
Cllr Sheehy said developing plans for areas like Fenit, Glenbeigh and Kenmare before the elected members speak directly to Irish Water is like putting the cart before the horse.
CEO of Kerry County Council, Moira Murrell, said the council has spoken to Irish Water and agreed that it would be positive for Irish Water to speak to the councillors.
Cllr Sheehy sought full council support to call on Irish Water to come before the elected members of Kerry County Council, which was then agreed.
