Limerick is dealing with a public works scandal involving numerous complaints about poorly maintained streets and insufficient cleaning. Members of the Cleansing Committee discussed the issue and voiced concerns about the current system. Despite some improvements, unsatisfactory conditions continue, leading some councillors to label the approach a “farce and a fraud.” They demand significant changes to ensure cleaner streets for residents.
In response to the concerns raised by the Cleansing Committee, local authorities are considering various solutions to improve the street cleaning system. Potential strategies include increasing investments in cleaning equipment and personnel, implementing more effective waste management practices, and raising public awareness about the importance of maintaining a clean urban environment. By adopting a combination of these measures, the city aims to address the existing problems and show its commitment to providing a cleaner and healthier living environment for its citizens.
