Have Your Say: Swansea can sparkle
ARE Swansea Council really sincere in their intentions to clean the city and suburbs and put a permanent shine on it (Post, Sept 16)? It wouldn't surprise me if 80 per cent or more of the tidy, clean living citizens of Swansea rushed to agree. Presumably the two new litter teams have been clinically briefed, not just to spot the obvious cigarette ends or drinks can or take-away carton as well as the dog poo, but why with the present high level of unemployment have the council adopted the easy option of employing enforcement company 3GS. Surely it is not beyond the council's expertise to employ and train from scratch local unemployed of either sex who no doubt would show more dedication to the job than a contracted import. I think the brief should embrace the broadest of misdemeanours or oversights. One collection of items that always sticks out a mile are the abandoned temporary road works instruction signs, these together with sandbags and traffic cones somehow seem to escape at the completion of a contract.
