Liz was also critical of the grass cutting, she said that she had complained to the relevant council department. The Provost said; “Why they are cutting the grass when there is no grass I don’t know. It has to be a certain length before it gets trimmed. I really don’t know what’s happening I’ve phoned a few guys to try and find the background on it.”
Murd then pointed out that the river walks are supposed to get three cuts per year and that was one of them at a time when it wasn’t needed.
The River CC then went on to discuss taking back the grass cutting under local control via devices like the Highland Council’s Community Challenge Fund. Such an initiative would have to be done in coordination with the town’s other two Councils but River seem up for it. More details on the Gurn soon.
