I would suggest that it be made a requirement of every council worker's contract of employment and job description that they are expected to report all grime and crime issues.
They are in the pay of the public purse and should all live up to the wider responsibility to make Glasgow a better place.
Gone are the days when they could get away with saying: "It's no ma job".
As the posters all around Glasgow say: "If you See Something Say Something."
And the public shouldn't forget their obligation, either.

passing through Allison Street in Govanhill I noticed mattresses, couches and fridges lying about the pavements.
Why doesn't the council take action against rogue landlords who leave this rubbish on the pavements?
On a positive note, I did notice an offending fly-tipper being issued a fine by a litter warden for leaving out commercial waste.

IF we vote for an independent Scotland in 2014, are we not going to be given the chance of a referendum to ask if we want to go into the EU, or is an SNP government going to decide that the Scottish people are incapable of thinking for themselves and that, as usual, politicians know better?
Norway does alright for itself and is outside the EU, so why shouldn't Scotland go the same way?

I AGREE with Michelle McManus (Evening Times, October 25).
Everybody seems to think it amazing that Lisa Riley can actually dance on Strictly Come Dancing – but why is that so surprising?
Talent comes in all shapes and sizes.
