Councillors urge public to keep them informed - 14th July 2008 Councillor Mrs Ros Fox and Councillor Martin Smith, at a
recent Branch meeting of the Scarborough and Whitby Conservative
Association, urged members of the public to telephone the
various departments of their local council whenever a problem
Councillor Fox, in discussion about the "Scarborough in Bloom"
competition stated that, "Members of the public have so far been
very kind in reporting incidences of graffiti, in order that our
Anti-Graffiti team might remove it. However, there are still
plenty of areas of the town that still suffer from graffiti, and
we would like the publics help in identifying problem areas so
that we might tackle the problem together."
She also suggested that people might ring into the Borough
Council, and report these areas. This will allow the Borough
Council to keep on top of any problems, and hopefully help deter
the vandals altogether in the future.

Council Website, or by clicking
On a similar vein Councillor Martin Smith recently asked members
of the public to inform the Council of any issues with the
traffic management systems in the town. He stated, "Often our
teams will go out and look for problems, but occasionally
something might be missed, for example, a broken bulb in a
traffic light. If members of the public contact our traffic
management teams they can usually act very quickly to rectify
any problems. In helping our teams know where problems are, the
problems can be solved quickly and help minimise the disruption
to the public at large."
Councillor Smith thanked all the members of the Borough that
have taken the time and effort to report problems such as these
to various departments in the Borough Council, and asked that
people not feel afraid to provide feedback about these issues to
the Council in future.
