Amazed

I am continually amazed by the actions of our city council staff.

Allowing NIDA to commence activities on the ground floor of the Guild Apartment building with no access to running water in the leased premises astounds me.

Students and staff are forced to use the two toilets provided for residents’ use in the swimming pool/gymnasium area.

This is clearly inadequate for the, at times, large number of young people attending. Is getting drinking water from a toilet even safe? How long will this undesirable situation be allowed to continue?

Taxi chaos

In the Southbank Local News issue 58 - page 20 - letters to the editor is a letter from John warning about an accident.

You are welcome to pass this on to John if you have his contact details.

Some time ago I sent a complaint to a taxi company about the exact same issue John has concerns about. 

The reply I received (email, but cant seem to find it) was unhelpful and dismissive of the taxi drivers of any wrongdoing. 

The company said the taxi queue on Clarendon Street between Normanby Street and the taxi entrance to Crown is actually the responsibility of Crown. Maybe John could seek answers from Crown management.

I did not enquire or complain to Crown and don’t know if there is any truth in what the taxi company said. 

But I share the same concerns as John and always hear the horns of vehicles and dings of trams with every change of traffic lights on a Friday and Saturday night between 10pm to 3am.
