Now that we are paying for water as well as private property tax, would it be unreasonable for the residents of Cork City and county to expect to have access to a published annual schedule of road and street drain cleaning?
Many people of Cork City’s southside will remember the rainwater flowing down Barrack St, overflowing every blocked drain on the way down, to become bigger than many county rivers and becoming a menacing torrent by the time it reached the bottom of the street.
I have heard it said that some areas have more ‘indoor seated’ engineers, and not enough ‘on the spot’ people, of which the recent monster traffic jam in the Dunkettle/South Link area may have been evidence.
