M&CC consultations do not cater for regular working folks

first_imgDear Editor,I have noted many advertisements put out by the M&CC regarding  public consultations regarding the garbage situation.  While it good for the M&CC to do these consultations, I noticed that the consultations are at 10 am on the dates and also they are at City Hall.  I tried to get to one of the consultations for an area next to mine (my area was not included in the consultation list by the way), however, I had a work meeting clash that I could not get away from.  This is my point.
