LAST week, the Gazette published a story about overgrown grass on municipal land on Carter Street and the unpleasant conditions that are affecting the value of the houses in the area. On Tuesday last week, a team from Umvoti Municipality was dispatched to cut the overgrown grass that was affecting resident’s property. Homeowner Thulani Ngcobo had approached the Greytown Gazette after he claimed his verge had been “neglected” for eight months. Following the article, the Gazette contacted the municipality for comment and Umvoti Municipality spokesperson Phindile Phungula confirmed that a team was dispatched to Carter Street to cut the grass. “On Tuesday last week, municipal workers from Umvoti started mowing the grass verges outside my house. However, I am not entirely happy with the work they did because they didn’t remove the grass,” Ngcobo said, adding that other neighbours have taken the initiative to cut the grass verges. “Brushcutters must do their jobs, and cut all the overgrown verges in town because they belong to the municipality. “Other residents even bought mowing machines to cut the grass themselves because it looks like nobody cares about us,” he added.
