To the editor...
While I commend council for funding a newgarden, landscaping, sculpture, etc of the areaimmediately in front of & around the corner of theServices Club to the tune of $37,800, WHO willmaintain this area. I would have thought it was theClub's area to look after, my husband & I have tobeautify & maintain our nature strip. The parkacross the road is lacking in maintenance withCouncil employees unable to keep up with theweeds, etc. Not enough time allocated for thispurpose. The Garden Club have beenapproached to help in this area. I really believegardens, parks, etc are COUNCIL responsibility.Morris Park in Rodd Street is also sadly in need ofmaintenance. Have any of the councillors walkedthrough there in the past 6-12 months? The pathsare all overgrown with grass, the only area thatlooks good is where the Canowindra Garden Clubmaintains. The lawns (with no thanks to Council,except for the mowing) are nice & green thanks toMother Nature. This park used to be a showpieceof Canowindra & this year will be 80 years old inAugust. With maintenance & TLC it could onceagain be what the Boree Shire had in mind in1932.I (along with many others) think our money should& could be spent on what we already have not anew garden that doesn't have any plans, as far asI understand, for maintenance. The new FitnessPath is a wonderful concept BUT who will maintainit?Yours sincerely,Mary Finn, Canowindra
