Sinn Féin councillors Jay McCauley and Maolíosa McHugh this week met with the Housing executive to receive an update on the progress made on the backlog of maintenance works in the Strabane district.

Speaking after the meeting Cllr McCauley said,

"We welcome the progress that has been made so far by Omega on the backlog of maintenance works on housing executive properties. In the two weeks since a Sinn Féin delegation met with senior housing executive officials, Omega have completed around 125 of backlog jobs and over 130 new jobs. 5 C.O.T jobs have also been completed."

Continuing Cllr McHugh said,

"The housing executive has ensured us that they are confident Omega are capable of completing the backlog in the 6 week timeframe that has been set out, plus dealing with current maintenance issues. We commend Omega for the good standard of the work that has so far been carried out. We will be meeting with the housing executive every 2 weeks to receive their progress reports."
