Berm at­tack

Central Leader - - NEWS -

I per­son­ally am in­censed by the coun­cil rul­ing on grass berms and the re­quire­ment for the ratepay­ers to take own­er­ship of them. I will never cut my berm. But, this raises so many is­sues. Who pays for the time and petrol or elec­tric­ity? Who pays if I get in­jured do­ing it? What’s the cor­rect height re­quired? How of­ten do I cut them? Who are the new in­spec­tors? Some peo­ple have large ar­eas to cut so do they get a re­bate on their rates?

What are the fines for not cut­ting them? Can I weed-killer the whole area to save me the bother? This rul­ing needs to be over­turned.

And re Len Brown, if I did what he did I would lose my job.
