As of last week www.fixyourstreet.ie has received nearly 80,000 requests from residents in relation to graffiti, lighting, drainage, litter, etc.. However, SDCC is shutting the website down citing: “The technical infrastructure on which the service was built is now past its end of life and there have been significant technical, operational, and security challenges experienced in delivering the service on the current platform as a result of this.”
The website was established in 2011 along with an Irish version: deisighdoshraid.ie. As of 1st August, both sites will be shut down. A lot of money has gone into this website. It’s a pity to see the site go offline. The website promised to “responded to issues raised within 2 working days “.
“Whilst I appreciate all the hard work SDCC has put into the website, existing enquiries must not now fall by the wayside. SDCC must deal with the issues in a timely manner. I have also asked how many enquiries (out of the 80k) have been addressed by SDCC as well how much money has been spent on the website to date. If residents have any outstanding issues, myself and my council colleagues are happy to help assist residents” stated Cllr Trevor Gilligan PC.
