Is your kerbside covered in weeds? Are you concerned about inadequate maintenance of St Mary’s Bay Park? Do you have safety fears about the poor condition of the nosing on the Jacob’s Ladder steps? Then contact Auckland Council to report poor maintenance. Simply fill in this online form https://www.aucklandcouncil.govt.nz/report-problem/pages/default.aspx and the council will log this into its system and contact you with an answer. Well, that’s what is supposed to happen.
Unfortunately the SMBA has received complaints from members about lack of action from council following use of the “report a problem” online form.
The SMBA is currently in discussion with Auckland Council on these matters. Several months ago we asked to see a maintenance plan for the park but this has still not been produced. It would seem that it needs a complaint (or several) from the public before maintenance contractors swing into action.
