MAIN­TE­NANCE RE­QUIRED

I agree with Michelle Brown (Dec 8). The al­ley­ways be­tween the streets and the walk­ways in As­cot Park are a dis­grace.

A few years ago, the city coun­cil ex­tended Botham­ley Walk­way from War­spite Ave to As­cot Park. In places, the walk­way is not half the width it used to be be­cause na­ture has been al­lowed to take over.

The walk­ways be­tween the streets are full of weeds. The com­mu­nity cleaned most of them for the 50th an­niver­sary of our city in Oc­to­ber, but since then, na­ture has again taken hold.

I have learned that Ful­ton Ho­gan lost the con­tract for this work.

Who­ever has the con­tract now ei­ther didn’t in­clude the walk­ways in the con­tract or is rip­ping off ratepay­ers.

Is the so-called work spec­i­fied in the con­tract ever in­spected? Surely the ratepay­ers are en­ti­tled to a bet­ter ser­vice in the com­mu­ni­ties and not just in the city cen­tre. Please can we have some work done out­side this area so the res­i­dents can take pride in their sur­round­ings.
