Minute Number 195 – Questions from the Public.
Q1) Pauline Lawrence – Can you tell me what you do with old recycling boxes when they are no longer useable?
A1) The Town Clerk replied that she had been advised by TDC in the past they should be put out with the general rubbish, but would clarify this.
Q2) Richard Price thanked the retiring Councillors for all their hard work on the council in the past years, and thanked Councillors Mann and Russell for their information they provided on the swimming pool.
Q3) Joyce House – Pleased that the pot holes in Richard Avenue have now been fixed, but the path in John Street outside number 20 is in a very bad state. Also the pot holes on the entrance of Manor House Way are very dangerous.
A3) The Mayor replied that these have all been reported to Essex County Council on several occasions.
Q4) Gary Humm – With the council changing this year, and Councillor Goggin standing down, this will leave a hole with the new person taking over the Town Hard as their responsibility. If the Council is interested in having someone they could liaise with I would happily give my time freely.
A4) Councillor Goggin replied that all the correspondence he has been dealing with is in the Hard file, and he would be happy to help, if needed in the future.
