Fencing rail lines not the answer
I read an article in the Waikato Times on Friday, July 27 regarding fencing railway lines to make it a safer place.
As a person living opposite Bedford Park for more than 20 years, I see people climbing the fence nearly every day.
I use the park regularly and at this time there is a large section cut in the netting and also another cut section in the Firth St area.
People will do whatever it takes to get over the fence or through it.
A fence is not the answer but in saying that I don’t know what the answer is.
My heartfelt sympathy goes to Zac’s family.
What happened to them? Well it’s very simple.
They were not necessary. We have the council to look after the ratepayers.
Hugh Vercoe and his council will save $100,000 by removing the community board and this is a good start.
The next to go would be the regional council; they don’t do anything either and what savings that would make. The Matamata-Piako District Council is quite capable of doing the job.
We don’t need anybody else.
