Dear Sir or Madam,
I am writing to bring to your attention a road maintenance issue just outside my house on North Road.
My name is Paul Jones. I have been a resident at number 20 North Road for over 10 years, and I have never had reason to complain to the council before.
Recently, a large pothole has appeared on the side of the road closest to my house. When it rains, the pothole fills with water and becomes an invisible danger to drivers. It is also an eyesore for those of us
living in the vicinity. I have called the council offices on several occasions to report the problem, but still nothing has been done.
I would like to request that you address this matter personally and ensure that it is treated as a priority by the road maintenance department.
I look forward to the problem being resolved.
