Mt Al­bert a haz­ard

Auckland City Harbour News - - Letters - BILL PIKE Mt Al­bert

I re­fer sup­port Lisa Sloan’s ar­ti­cle Mt Al­bert Slum Fear that was in the Auck­land City Har­bour News on May 30.

Ev­ery morn­ing I take my guide dog Noble down the ramp through the train sta­tion com­plex and find peo­ple sleep­ing on the premises and graf­fiti tag­gers, upon hear­ing us, dis­ap­pear promptly.

Also along the main shop­ping foot­path on rub­bish col­lec­tion days my guide dog has to shunt the wheelie bins aside be­fore we can pass.

In ad­di­tion to this the food scraps and loose rub­bish de­posited hap­haz­ardly by shop oc­cu­pants is a pub­lic dis­grace.

It is high time that all those au­thor­i­ties charged with the duty of look­ing af­ter the health and safety is­sues of our cit­i­zens took proac­tive ac­tion.

Mt Al­bert de­serves noth­ing less.
