Residents will be aware that I have previously asked for the railings of Blackness Library to be repainted - this is badly needing done.
In principle, it was agreed the Community Payback Team would do this, and I recently asked for an update on timescale.
I have now received this helpful response from the Project Manager :
"Due to reduced staffing in my team, client numbers and the amount of work we have on our list (most of which are projects requiring several months' work) we were unable to carry out any work to the railings. We are now in a better position to commence the work.
We're looking at April until work can begin due to the weather but it is on my schedule for then. We'll also be meeting on site to discuss the work."
This response was received immediately prior to the COVID-19 health emergency and, clearly, the April timescale is now not possible. However, it is good to know the work will be carried out in due course.
