We have had many comments from residents about the proliferation of weeds in our gutters. We agreed – they have been an unsightly distraction from the grounds maintenance work being undertaken. This is a result of reduced road sweeping by WDC and BCC no longer undertaking weed killing. So MTC have agreed additional funding for weed-killing in gutters on the majority of the roads within the town. Approximately two weeks later we will be clearing the dead weeds and detritus from the gutters with road sweepers. Please bear in mind that parked cars may cause an obstruction that will impede full coverage – so if at all possible please reconsider on road parking. The weed killing will be taking place early mornings in week commencing 22nd August 2016.
