The Limerick County Council has made a provisional declaration specifying that all county roads are suitable for maintenance through direct labor under the supervision of the County Surveyor. In this new scheme, laborers will be employed and dismissed by the County Surveyor and will be responsible for providing their own tools. Wages for these general workmen will be set at 12 shillings per week. The plan ensures all roads will be maintained while offering opportunities for local laborers in the county.
