Grass-cutting delays

29 April 2016, 09:22  - Karishma.Rampersadh

THE letter of Allan Angus in The Witness of April 26 has reference.

In his letter, Angus makes mention of the neglect of city staff and officials to attending to grass-cutting duties, resulting in the tragic death of a young woman due to long grass obscuring the view of traffic entering Murray Road from Varley Road.

It took a tragic death to force city officials to attend to the cutting of grass verges.

I would pose a question to the city officials. What will it take for you to attend to the cutting of the grass on the property abutting the playing fields at Dalry Park?

Despite countless requests to the city Parks Department and numerous letters to the city manager, no attention has yet been given to attending to the cutting of the grass in the Pelham area.

Phone calls to the Parks Department management are fobbed off with the comment that the cutting of the grass has to take place within the laid down process. Already an old woman from the Jan Richter Centre in our road has been robbed in broad daylight, with the perpetrator escaping into the overgrown property verging onto the playing fields.
