Taking a break...

FixMyStreet is going offline shortly, probably permanently. The software is old and needs a complete rewrite, the site is being bombarded by spammers, and it is debatable whether councils are receiving and/or acting on FixMyStreet reports.

As of now, it is not possible to post new issues, or updates to published issues.

If you have submitted on FixMyStreet, thank you for playing a part in one of Aotearoa/New Zealand's early civic tech projects.

Weeds - footpath and kerb

Please review the use of a herbicide to kill the weeds growing in the gutters and kerbs of my street. The cycle for the hot water weed killing programme is too long and hard-to-kill weeds are becoming well-established, e.g. nutgrass. It is now December 23 and by January they will be knee-high! Most residents don't bother about the footpath outside their properties so I doubt they would complain about the use of a weedkiller, or even notice its use! Please consider switching back to glyphosate herbicide or shorten the cycle to catch weeds in their infancy.
