Seeing things in a new light

Letter writer says it was "sad to see" drainage committee recommendations rejected

First I thank you for reporting our District of Kent council meeting.

Where council turned down almost the recommendations of the drainage committee. The drainage committee is an advisory to the council of Kent which puts forward advice for the problems which are happening in the District concerning drainage. Some problems are 35 years old.

These remedies were straight forward, not 20 pages long. Council and administration know what avenue to take, for action. That is why they have these jobs are are being paid to do them.

It was sad to see the council and administration show their colours in rejecting the recommendations.

I see the council and district administration totally different now.
