Fix My Street

The BBC have promoted a council run service for reporting street cleaning issues. All well and good, but FixMyStreet has been running for longer and is independent of the person reporting the problem and, critically, the council responsible for fixing the problem. There is very definitely a conflict of interests with the council running the site which is watching the council.

I really wish the council in the BBC story had put the money towards helping to improve FixMyStreet, or just promoting it ... or even just improving their response to issues raised through FixMyStreet.
