Mayor calls for pride in prop­er­ties

South Waikato News - - NEWS -

South Waikato District Mayor Neil Sin­clair is urg­ing Toko­roa res­i­dents to take some pride in the ap­pear­ance of their com­mu­nity, in par­tic­u­lar their lawns.

Mr Sin­clair said he was dis­ap­pointed at how many prop­er­ties he had found through­out Toko­roa and Pu­taruru with over­grown lawns or verges.

Mr Sin­clair said he had found 100 prop­er­ties in the district, 70 in Toko­roa and 30 in Pu­taruru with over­grown grass.

It was not re­al­is­tic, he said, to ex­pect the coun­cil to mow verges as if coun­cil did this for some prop­er­ties it would be ex­pected to mow all verges.

The cost would be pro­hib­i­tive, he said. In­stead he is ask­ing res­i­dents to ‘‘take pride‘‘ in how their prop­er­ties looked.
