Dublin is an international capital city and is the economic engine of the region and the State. Dublin City Council seeks to enhance the city’s attractiveness as a place in which to invest, to work, to live and to visit. It takes a leading role in shaping the strategic vision for the city.
The City Council has a total annual expenditure (between revenue and capital) of close to €1.6 billion and a workforce of c. 5,600 (FTEs). It provides a diverse, multi-layered and evolving range of services and infrastructure to both citizens and visitors to Dublin to sustain the life of the city. These services include the provision of housing, planning, development, environmental, roads and traffic, fire and emergency, leisure and community services. Many of these services, including water, drainage, fire and emergency services are provided on a regional basis for the Greater Dublin area. The Council provides water supply and waste water services under a Service Level Agreement on behalf of Irish Water (since 2014). The City Council has a number of Area Offices as part of its commitment to area based service delivery and community development.
The Council is increasingly exploring new and innovative ways to tackle City challenges and deliver services while meeting citizens’ service expectations, achieving efficiencies and continuing to meet the demand for increased accountability.
