I agree that the council does not provide adequate service for the mowing of grass verges. I live in Rustic Ave, Hillsborough and when I moved there 15 years ago it was a tidy, well-kept street.
Now we are lucky if the verges are mowed every six to eight weeks. My neighbour who is in the front section has complained many times to the council to get our verge mowed and has even threatened to spray it with weed killer.
This is council land so the council should take care of it or pay us ratepayers to look after it for them! MARGIE BARRIBALL
