It comes after a public meeting on Thursday, where a group of 30 Sumner residents met to discuss how to resolve longstanding concerns, particularly about rubbish collection. Representatives from the Sumner Community Residents’ Association, Sumner Adopt-a- Patch project, Sumner Business Group and Esplanade Gardening Group presented at the meeting. At a meeting with city council staff and Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board member Darrell Latham on Thursday, the residents’ association will raise its issues of concern. They include what penalties might be levied on contractors who fail to empty rubbish bins as scheduled; the frequency of bin emptying throughout 2018; maintenance of public gardens and lawns and whether the Adopta-Patch project can work with the city council to improve public places. Adopt-a-Patch aims to improve patches of land around Sumner and Taylors Mistake through residents ‘adopting’ specific areas for weeding, pruning and other maintenance. Residents’ association manager Liza Sparrow said those present were reassured that there is a general desire from residents and businesses to help where they can. “We are confident that the board will remain supportive of residents’ desires to improve the situation of rubbish removal. Other issues of toilets, curbs and signage were also mooted,” said Ms Sparrow. Darrell Latham BLINDS...Cleaned, Repaired & Restored... Restore your oiled CEDAR BLINDS with our re-oiling service.
