Dacorum Borough Council Complaint - Lack Of Maintenance In Dacorum Borough Council

Review by Harrycichy on 2006-05-23
Lack of Maintenance by Dacorum Borough Council in Hemel Hempstead Hertfordshire England. We try and keep our home's areas in good order. Getting the local Council, ( Dacorum Borough Council) to maintain and check areas is a uphill struggle. With railings that have not been painted for some 40 years at the Queensaway approuch to the Town of Hemel Hempstead, things must seem a joke to visitors to the area. Looking more like the worst case sinario of the Bronks at its worst time in New York, or the slums of Naples in Italy.
It leads little respect, to those of us that live in the area. Garage areas that are need of a lick of paint, again years of neglect.
The Council takes our money in the form of rent & rates. Enough is Enough! do your job and clean up your act. To add 'Salt' to the wound we are asked to help with painting. Sorry Dacorum Borough Council I am to busy complaing. Harry Cichy, Hemel Hempstead Hertfordshire England.

In a democracy, we always get saddled with the government we deserve.

Hoo, boy! Get rid of your feeling of entitlement of government care from 'cradle to grave.' Railings haven't been painted in 40 years? Organize a volunteer party, buy a few buckets of paint and some brushes and get the job done. That's what we'd do for our 'sinario of the Bronks.' Oh, I forgot! You're 'to' busy 'complaing' to do anything on your own. That last statement explains it all. Most of us don't just sit on our duffs and expect the government to be our nanny.

Ponie- Yep, you're right. People will kvetch about a gum wrapper on the street for an hour before they'd spend 1 second to pick it up. Such is one's expectation of the State as Saviour.

And here we go with responsibility again, every one should be responsible for their own actions”. In this case, “I did my part, I sat on my _ss and wrote a complaint, now someone get over here and take care of it!”
