Council CEO to step down later this year

Cummins opts against contract extension

The Chief Executive of Roscommon County Council will not seek an extension to his contract when his current term comes to an end in September.

  Eugene Cummins informed councillors of his decision to step aside during a Zoom meeting last week.

  Roscommon County Council confirmed to Roscommon People that Mr. Cummins would not be seeking an extension.

  In a statement this week, the local authority said: “The contract for the Chief Executive is for a period of seven years which comes to an end this year.

  “There is an option to extend by a further three years and the Chief Executive Mr. Cummins is not availing of this option”.

  Mr. Cummins, a native of Ballygar, was first appointed to the position in August 2015.
