Letter: Untidy lawns

 How long before the eyesore will be tidied around the new childcare centre on corner of Valley Rd & Rossiter Ave. This property has been under operation for such a prolonged time (I understand it has been sold) but still not completed. Very long grass outside the property has been an eyesore over Christmas and New Year, still no lawns done. Anybody know what is happening with this property, surely we have enough child care centres already in Waiuku, this one is such a sterile uninteresting property not a tree in sight.
 K.M, Waiuku.
The Post Newspaper contacted Sharlene Druyven, Waiuku Town Manager who suggested the following:
“If it is an eyesore you can ring Council and log the complaint. Make sure you get a job number. I believe they would get it tidied and bill the owner or contact the owner and give them an opportunity to tidy first.  It would pay for you to ring them and check the procedure as we have a new maintenance team,” she said.
Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
