Subject: Poor maintenance of the park
Dear Sir or Madam:
I am writing to complain about the poor maintenance of the park in my neighbourhood. Although your department has appointed someone to take good care of the park, he has not been discharging his duty properly. The boundary wall is broken in many parts and this poses a security risk to the children playing in the park. Dangerous reptiles can hide under the bricks lying around and in the holes in the walls. Recently, a few snakes were found in the park.
Security is not the only problem. The park has lost its aesthetic appeal too. There are flower beds; however, there are no plants or flowers. Although some flowering plants were planted a few months ago, they all died because they were not watered regularly. The hedges have not been pruned in months and now they have all overgrown.
I request you to take urgent measures to rectify the problem. This is the only open space in our locality and as such it is precious to us.
