Frinton/Walton: Councillors explore hedge-cutting takeover
6:00pm Monday 7th October 2013 in News
FRUSTRATED town councillors are exploring plans to take the maintenance of hedges and verges off the hands of the county council.
Frinton and Walton Town Council wants to make the service more efficient and councillors will look into the possibility of sub-contracting workers to keep roadside greenery trimmed and tidy.
They would still be asking Essex County Council to foot the bill.
The council will now look into costs for contractors to use for the service.
Mayor Iris Johnson said: “It is a good idea but before going ahead we need to know how much the county council would give us in recompense.”
