County Council Contractors exploitation?

I don't know about Herefordonians? I think this would strike a cord in other counties.

Pom may just have a go at pinching it.
At a cost of over 130 million pounds. The local services and maintenance provider formerly Jarvis now called Amey Wye Valley could be seriously incapable of providing the quality of service we in Hereford expect. The ineffectual mismanagement of this service provider has left Hereford in a miserable and dishevelled state.

Our county is not getting results - the services Amey are paid for are not being delivered where they are needed and much maintenace work is left undone or unfinished properly. We as Herefordians have had very little output from the buck we pay in in the form of Council Tax - the town looks miserable - the roads are akin to a potholers fantasy -

The money would be better spent if the council took over the management of it own services and maintainance instead of paying for inadequate poorly managed provision- that seriously lacks value for money. What do Herefordians think?

Thanks Hereford 1919

Mr Pom is now trying to remember if Jarvis was a Hereford contractor. Was a building estimator.

Pom, Jarvis are big in rail management, and Amey seems a side shoot.
