Local councillor Noel McCarthy has welcomed the appointment of Grangemore Landscapes as the contractor for the county council’s grass cutting programme for Fermoy for 2013.
“I welcome this decision, as this company had provided such services for a number of years, carrying out 16 cuts each season and providing a first class service,” he said.
The council last used the company in 2010. For the past two years a different landscape company was given the contract but the service was the subject of repeated complaints last year. Residents of local estates were vocal in their cricitism that the grass wasn’t being cut often enough and when it was it was left to blow around.
“They failed to reach the standards we were used to,” Cllr McCarthy commented. The council defended the company, saying the inclement weather for much of last summer hampered the company’s efforts.
As PRO of the local Tidy Towns, Cllr Tadhg O’Donovan also welcomed the council’s decision to change companies. “It’s great news. People were totally demoralised at the poor standard of the work these past two years,” he said.
