Ne­glected

Central Leader - - Opinion -

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
