After a poor few years there are signs that some of the street level public services provided by the York Council are beginning to improve.
Last year saw parts of the City engulfed in weeds.
This year a quad bike is already zipping round the area applying weed killer to paths and gutters.
Litter and detritus is also another major problem as these photos show.
We hope that the new specialist street sweeping machines (above left) will soon make an impact…and that the Council has thought through how it will cleanse difficult to access areas.
We hope that the York Council will also make its street cleansing – and weed control – timetables available on their web site. Taxpayers should know how often they can expect their streets to be swept
