Budget Cuts Mean Cuts In Grass Cutting Says Councillor


9:46am 29th June 2013

Council cuts mean longer grass verges in Dorchester and less regular cutting.

A lack of finances mean the council are just leaving the grass to grow according to councillor Dave Taylor.

He fears major problems could occur, such as the creation of a fire hazard, drain blockages and fly infestations.

Councillor Taylor says long grass in residential areas is not attractive for visitors to the town, and could affect Dorchester's reputation.
