So, anyone been nicked yet?? Worked for one guy with our local Council and he said that he was currently training as a Council Community Officer?!!!. Careful questioning revealed that he was not aware of the new laws on roadside repairs.His main areas of responsibility would seem to be dog fouling, litter and nuisance neighbours. He did say that he would be empowered to hand out on the spot fines. With some of the dirty beggars I see on our local streets, I fully support the initiative, as long as he leaves me get on with my work! regards, Gwyn PS Spellcheck just said that I had spelled neighbours wrong. bloody Yanks!!
