Somerset Reports

Yeovil, Somerset

Review of Yeovil by M Farmer on March 23rd, 2007
I am a resident of Yeovil who uses a specialist contractor to carry some weed control works for me. The other day when I bumped in to him in town (as he is also a resident and based in Yeovil), and asked him how business was going, I was shocked to hear that the South Somerset District Council had decided to remove their funding from the County in preference of carrying out the works themselves. I can only imagine that this decision is something to do with the recent debat about Somerset becoming a unitary authority. It however seems like madness that politics should dicate over matters such as service. This firm Complete Weed Control who I believe are carrying out the weed control works across all the other districts of Somerset in a different franchise area are using the latest equipment that actually spots the weeds by computer and sprays them. My question is, if it is all about local service then why is it that South Somerset are busy removing business from a local business, also he tells me that the district plan to walk the streets spraying the weeds. Is this surely not an out dated labour intensive, expensive method. I also do hope its not the same people used that spray around the things in the grass verges and along the edges as the workmanship is a disgrace. M. Farmer
