Clean out all drains in the late autumn

Go back to regular cleaning of all street drains in late autumn. Also to pumping out dead leaves and silt and not just jetting them further down the (failing) system which already under stress.

Why the contribution is important

It is best practice to prevent blockages and consequent flooding and damage.

This is false economy and only seems to save money (I suspect) because of creative accounting and the compartmentalising of council spending.

Regular maintenance must cost less than emergency repairs.
