No re­spon­si­bil­ity

Central Leader - - LETTERS -

Ab­so­lutely no-one seems to take re­spon­si­bil­ity with this coun­cil we have.

Peo­ple park­ing their ve­hi­cles in the dis­abled park­ing ar­eas out­side One­hunga War Me­mo­rial Pools has been go­ing on for years.

Your news­pa­per in the past will be aware of mem­bers from the com­plex get­ting in touch with you also.

As for the coun­cil, a num­ber of times pre­vi­ous staff and man­age­ment from the com­plex were told by the coun­cil that they were to phone them with re­gards to il­le­gal park­ers and they would send a war­den around to ticket and tow the ve­hi­cle.

Of course this never hap­pened. And years later we are told that the coun­cil has no ju­ris­dic­tion in this area?

Are we to be­lieve that the flood­ing in this area be­cause of all the rub­bish fill­ing the gut­ters from the trees and lit­ter is the re­spon­si­bil­ity of the res­i­dents? Cen­tral Leader, De­cem­ber 26.

If it is, then some­one should be telling the res­i­dents in this street be­cause they sure as heck are not aware of this.

The prop­erty clos­est to the com­plex it­self of­ten has flooded water over their en­trance way when we have heavy rain.

This guy Simon Ran­dall (Maun­gakiekie-Ta­maki Lo­cal Board chair­man) I am sure is a name I re­mem­ber back five years or so ago when mem­bers and staff at the com­plex had meet­ings with the lo­cal coun­cil­lor for the area.

He in­forms me that he has never been aware of this prob­lem and nor has the board.
