Let’s close al­ley­ways

South Waikato News - - OPINION -

I was so dis­ap­pointed to see the front page of (a na­tional pa­per) on Satur­day, June 30. There we were on (the front) page but what a neg­a­tive im­pact that ar­ti­cle and those scum bags are go­ing to have on our community.

The res­i­dents of this town have worked tire­lessly over the years to project a pos­i­tive im­age of our town cul­ture here in Toko­roa – united, sup­port­ive, tol­er­ant, to name but a few.

Al­ley­ways have been a thorn in the town res­i­dents’ side for many years. Orig­i­nally de­signed for the shift work­ers to have easy ac­cess to the bus stops they have now passed their used-by dates and seem to only be good for rub­bish, graf­fiti and latenight at­tacks on in­no­cent peo­ple. Come on coun­cil, let’s sup­port these peo­ple in Weka Place, the po­lice and close all the al­ley­ways in Toko­roa. As a bonus it will save the coun­cil dol­lars from hav­ing to clean up the graf­fiti bro­ken glass and rub­bish that seems to be a per­ma­nent fix­ture in them. P Har­ri­son
