We have had a quick response from Argyll and Bute Council to our Freedom of Information request to know who created the grasscutting sheddule which has recently been a source of controversy amongst council employees in Oban and Dunoon.
The response is:
‘The consultant firm who have assisted through the Streetscene Review implementation were not involved in the building or the preparation of the grass cutting schedules or any other programme of works.
‘The preparation works were carried out by Alan Coyle (Management Services Officer), Tom Murphy (Streetscene Area Manager) and other Streetscene Managers / Technical staff, with the help of local employees – Chargehands / Foremen etc.
‘The works carried out by the consultant firm in respect to the schedules was in relation to the work recording systems which will lead to the future electronic works recording system.’
