Wigan Council .... Frauds!

Started by: tonker (23783) 

Well, listen. I've reported another pothole. Four, actually, all together near my house.
Now, acouple of months ago, Iwas praising them,as I reported a pothole (same one) and they came the day after and repaired (oooo, errrrrr?) it.

Well, it's just as bad now. So, I reported them all again.

Got a reply immediately .....

Thank you for using Wigan Council’s ReportIT.
Your report has been received and will be investigated within 10 working days.

Yesterday, I left early doors to go to Thorne, Doncaster area. When I got back, it was dark. Got out of the car and noticed white squares all round the potholes. "hmmmm", I thought, "they've been, but not repaired them".

Later, I was reading my e-mails and one was from Wigan council ....

Your report ref 2184860 in the ‘Potholes’ category has now been classed as completed.
--------------------------------------------------------

So, it's "classed as completed" is it?
Although, nothing's been done except spray white lines round them!

They'll all be patting themselves on t'back at year-end. Giving awards out for efficiency and progress.
Yet, things are being recorded as 'completed' with nothing actually being done!

When your council tax bill arrives circle it with white ink and return it. Quid pro quo.

Tonks all they were saying was that the REPORT is completed not the job I reported a pothole last week and got the same message but under my report was their report to say an inspector had been to see the pothole and a work number had been generated and would be dealt with in the next 28 days

I reported an issue with my house "moving" every time a lorry or heavy vehicle went past. They came out and tutted, but nothing happened until a culvert completely collapsed outside my house. Then they dug the road up, repaired the culvert and apologised.

Had the "classed as completed" email myself. I questioned this after reporting a large hole and got an email saying they had been and marked and measured the whole, I replied telling them I have CCTV footage of the bloke who came to look, he didn't mark or measure the whole at all.

They did after a couple of hours of my reply though. Lazy council gits again, classed as completed my jacksie.

Anyroadup, yesterday morning, about a quarter past seven, an almighty racket appertained. It woke me up!
They took about ten minutes and now they're all filled in. I'll give it six months!
