Civic Pride – Cleaning Up
Last week there was a knock on my door. “We are cleaning the drive over the road, would you like yours done?” No, I said, it has taken me years to get the weathered look and I like it that way.
The following day I noticed two large mounds of crud in the kerb on the public highway one each outside the two neighbouring properties to the drive that had been cleaned.
Today I noticed another even larger pile of crud, while the drive was still in the process of being cleaned, in Fremantle Road.
This is littering. It is detritus that gets washed down into the drain holes and blocks them, causing flooding. And it is we taxpayers who foot the bill for cleaning up what is in effect trade waste.
I have asked our new Cabinet Member for Civic Pride if there are any rules on this subject and if they are enforced?
