CKN was initially formed as a crime fighting community where the neighbourhood could be the eyes and ears of the community to try and keep the crime levels under control. John has led this initiative and he puts in a great deal of time and effort apart from holding down a full time job.
We have been using WhatsApp Groups in CKN for several years in order to keep the Community in touch with events that affect us all. These groups have grown and we now have 8 CKN groups and an Animal care and Enviro Group.
Since this has become a simple way of reporting neighbourhood issues many residents have passed this responsibility on to “somebody else” . As a result John, Cynthia and Amelia are inundated with complaints about things like power cuts, water outages, fallen trees, street lights not working, potholes, speeding, parks that need attention and a number of other issues.
I would like to urge all residents to take responsibility for reporting all these issues themselves, and then posting reference numbers on the Ward 89 group so that matters can be escalated when necessary.
Please download and print the attached form giving the relevant departments and contact details to report to.
TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR SUBURB AND LOG ISSUES THAT NEED ATTENTION
As a community we are amazing – supportive, helpful and kind. We look after our animals and keep our community tidy.
Let us start the new year by being positive and responsible. And may 2020 be a wonderful year for us all.
