Weeds look unsightly in town

Have your say

Local councillor David May has been contacted by several residents with complaints regarding unsightly weeds growing in the town.

Mr May told the Review: “I have been contacted by various local residents about the number of weeds in the High Street, Murray Street and North Street in Montrose so I made about a point of checking out the problem directly. There are weeds at the bottom of some of our statues, trees and on the pavements. Consequently, I contacted the parks department about this and I am glad to report that the council will ensure that this will be resolved in the course of the next few weeks. I tend to agree with a local resident, who commented to me, that local shopkeepers could take responsibility and remove the weeds outside their own shops.”
