Residents in housing estates in Castlebar are not satisfied with the frequency of the council’s grass cutting in common areas / greens within estates at present. That’s the view of Castlebar based councillor Blackie Gavin.
He raised the issue at the monthly meeting of Castlebar Municipal District, where he said it’s unfair that residents in some estates in the town are paying 200 euro a time to get the grass cut and to maintain the green areas in their estates.
While Mayo County Council staff cut grass across the district, the councillor says there needs to be a schedule of cutting in place, so that when residents contact councillors about getting their green areas cut, councillors would be able to refer to this schedule.
The proposal was backed by councillors present, who said they are all inundated with calls from residents in various estates keen to get their green areas cut.
