" A Resident"

Someone sent a video into the town council, signing off as "A resident". The writer complained that there was food leftover, cats are dirtying the corridor, there are increasing numbers of cats and that once a kitten had been killed in his engine. He attached a video clip.

I turned it on, thinking that the evidence of the litter, etc would be on the video. Instead, the clip showed the carpark for 16 seconds, and during some of this time, the camera pans over part of the surrounding area. The person then zooms in and tada - there is ONE cat sitting on a car. No evidence of the dirtying, increasing cat population, or the other complaints there. In fact in the short video clip I didn't even see any other cats at all - and I presume the person would have taken them if there had been any. The person stood four carpark spaces and a grass patch away and just zoomed in on this one cat.

I've written to the TC to ask if they have noticed if this is a valid complaint. In fact from the video, it looked like a nice, clean carpark.

It also really is annoying that TCs continue to take complaints from "A resident". How do we know if they are really a resident? What if someone just walks by and decides to complain? I understand town councils are there to serve their residents but surely there must be some proof that you ARE a resident? Say I walked into a shop and demanded a refund for example. Shouldn't I be expected to show some proof that I actually BOUGHT the item in the shop?

Hi Dawn

TC should not entertain pransters who leave no contacts behind. A cat sitting on a car doesn't make the estate filthy, just getting a little warm from all the rain.

The ' A resident ' could have also place some food on a car and caused the cat to jump up for the video shoot.

Hi Furry - yes it is, and I'm sure MOST estates actually have litter to show for it! To be fair, the carpark looked pretty clean in the video I saw.

Hi Dawn

My estate is really dirty. You will see litter at almost very block everyday and sometimes the same garbage can be at the same place for days.

the comlainant has nothing better
to do but pick on small, harmless animals. Should go pick up all the litter, clear obstruction along corridor and clean his own pollution and hazards.

I too have a collection photos of the REAL litter in my precinct, all ready to counter to such wu-liao "A Resident".
To fellow caregivers, start taking photos of all the real HUMAN litter evidence like Sanitary pads, just in case of such a**h** fellow "A Resident" so as to enlighten our silly town council officers!
