THIS photo was emailed to the Greytown Gazette a week ago with the comment “safety rails lying down in Laatz Street had several birthdays”. Despite constant complaints to Umvoti Municipality nothing has been done.
The resident queried whether, now with R100 000-plus being been spent by the municipality on tables for the Matomelo dinner, plus overtime, plus filling potholes and cutting verges on the route, etc; whether there would be any money left over in the budget to fix such problems as this one - the question that comes to mind is, what are the priorities of our municipality, road safety or publicity?
