REGARDING the article about the council service team's slapdash workmanship (page 3, August 15).
This seems to be the case within the borough. There is no sort of supervision of the work carried out and it is not until you get in touch with the council that you eventually get things put right.
In our case we had a footpath hazard that remained there for some four weeks. Even our local councillor could not get it removed. I have a friend in St Alphege ward who has had similar experiences.
The only place that seems to get the correct attention is the town centre.
I have lived and worked in the borough for over 50 years and have seen the state of the workmanship slip year on year, costing the ratepayer more and more for the slapdash workmanship.
It is about time that Solihull had a major shake-up within the top management, having people who have the knowledge to know a good job and those who have had practical experience of work - not just drawn from a text book.
