I used the api to scrape some of the reports at this scraperwiki scraper with 6 thousands records.

Have to figure a way to count and account for the increase in councils and potential users. Earlier attempt to find pattern via an FYS Exhibit The operators of fixyourstreet.ie refuse to update their ushahidi install so you can't get access to the reports _and_ responses via the api. They also need to show the response time for the issues, and how often for example street are cleaned, so maybe your issue won't be dealt with the next day but maybe within 3 weeks.

Question: Would there be a change to the content of local area meetings?

Cllr Tom kelleher said today that if the system was successful it could leave very little to do in the area committee meetings.

but Cllr Kieran Dennison makes a plea to keep the clientism going.

Please understand that availing of this system does not mean that your street will actually be fixed; for that you may need to contact your local councillor.
So I tried to scrape Fingal council minutes https://scraperwiki.com/scrapers/fingalminute3_1/ which is pretty impossible with the inconsistent formatting of the data, I don't know if that is different in its new system http://137.191.240.179/uuCoverPage.aspx?bcr=1
