Sinn Féin Councillor Mickey Cooper has said moves to address blocked drains in the Argyle Street area will take place this week.
Councillor Cooper said “There are ongoing issues with excess rainwater flowing through the area due to many of the drains in Argyle Street being blocked.
“I have also had requests for a deep clean of the area by council to improve the look of the footpaths and main road. I have therefore arranged a combined exercise by both the Roads Service and the Council which will take place on Thursday 10th January starting at 8.00 am to address both issues. I would encourage residents to park their cars in a neighbouring street the night before to allow the staff to have maximum access to the street during the work.
“Council staff will be conducting a survey of the area in January to speak to residents about improved recycling and waste disposal to ensure the incidents of dumping in the area are minimized in future.
“If any resident requires further assistance please do not hesitate to contact me.
