Town pride

South Waikato News - - OPINION -

For many years I have tried to en­cour­age our coun­cil to take a more re­spon­si­ble and car­ing at­ti­tude to­wards our parks and do­mains (with very lit­tle success). I now re­alise, I am a slow learner, that the peo­ple of Toko­roa are only go­ing to see progress if they take some re­spon­si­bil­ity and pride in their town, which the coun­cil seems re­luc­tant to do.

There­fore, as a first step, I would like to sug­gest that peo­ple whose prop­er­ties back up onto a do­main or a pub­lic space stop us­ing them as a pri­vate tip, whether it be Cullen Cres or Dal­meny St. I re­alise our coun­cil has no in­ter­est in this mat­ter so I am ask­ing the good peo­ple of Toko­roa to show them the way. Let us show them we have pride and we do care and per­haps in the fu­ture they will fol­low suit. R Free­man
